Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford, Sons of Anarchy) had a sweet role on ABC’s hit drama, Revenge, in 2011. He portrayed a character named Malcolm Black, an illegal arms dealer and the father of an FBI agent, Kate Taylor. The character held a man by the name of David Black captive for over 10 years, forcing him to launder money after he’d faked David’s death.
I’m sure you’ve already noticed the parallels between Malcolm and Chibs – much like Malcolm, Chibs also dabbled in the sale and movement of illegal arms, and while Chibs never faked anyone’s death, he was responsible for a few of his own real killings throughout the Sons of Anarchy series. Not to mention that while Chib’s daughter wasn’t an FBI agent in Sons of Anarchy, he did have a brief, but intense relationship with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Lieutenant.
