Filip “Chibs” Telford, portrayed by Tommy Flanagan, is the current President of SAMCRO. He’s held three major positions in the Sons of Anarchy MC, first as the Sergeant At Arms, and then the club’s Vice President, before being appointed as club President after Jax’s departure.
In Season 1, he looks real young, sporting a short haircut and a clean shaven goatee. His facial scar, that he received from Jimmy O’Phelan during his SAMBEL days, was prominent, and remained that way throughout the SOA series. This scar was the reason for his nickname, “Chibs”, as the word “chib” is the Scottish slang for knife, or stabbing tool.
During Seasons 2 and 3, his hair was a bit longer, and his goatee just as clean, though he begins to take on a more rugged, outlaw look. For Seasons 4 and 5, he starts to look older, and more tired, as if the club business is starting to wear on him.
Seasons 6 and 7 bring us the Chibs with grey hair; a hotter and more badass Chibs than we’ve seen before. This is the Chibs we now know and love, the guide for Jax and the voice of reason for SAMCRO. It’s amazing to see the changes in him over 7 years! Which Chibs look is your favorite? Tells us in the comments!
