Harry “Opie” Winston – brother, husband, father, and friend. He was portrayed in Sons of Anarchy by Ryan Hurst, and was one of the more emotionally damaging character deaths of the series. He was Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam)’s best friend, and had sacrificed himself so his brothers could stay alive.
I think Opie’s death was the first time that Sons of Anarchy had made me cry. It was hard not to, as the camera panned to Opie’s wife Lyla Winston(Winter Ave Zoli) as she couldn’t hold it together, and then back to Jax himself as we watched tears well up in his eyes. Yep, I’m not that strong.
