Opie Winston was a member of the Sons of Anarchy MC on the hit television show Sons of Anarchy. His father on the show was Piney who was also a member of the club and one of the first 9.
Opie’s best friend is the president of the club – Jax Teller. Jax’s character is played by Charlie Hunnam.
This does not have a happy ending though. Opie gets killed in prison (San Joaquin County Correctional Facility). He actually turns himself into a martyr to save his brothers in the club.
Show creator Kurt Sutter admits that he always had plans to kill Opie off the show. He actually delayed the decision into a later season.
This video show the emotional goodbye from Charlie Hunnam and Mark Boone to Ryan Hurst and his portrayal of Opie Winston. It’s an extremely emotional moment and these actors have a hard time keeping it together. Tears were shed.
This is real behind the scenes footage and I’m glad they decided to share it with the fans of Sons of Anarchy.
