TMZ caught up with two Sons of Anarchy alumni, Rusty Coones (Rane Quinn) and Kristen Renton (Ima Tite), as they were leaving Houston, TX and the Space City Comic Con. Upon arrival at LAX airport in California, they recalled their versions of the Sons of Anarchy controversy on camera with the news agency. Neither Sons of Anarchy alum were happy with the events that took place at the chaotic events, but one thing remained true – they stuck it out for their fans.
We got Rusty Coones — Rane Quinn on ‘SOA’ — returning to LAX from the disastrous event in Houston. He says the cast, including Charlie Hunnam, got duped by one of the promoters. He and co-star Kristen Renton broke it down — saying the guy stiffed ’em with bogus paychecks. The bigger problem — the throngs of fans who came from around the world, forking over a total of $800k according to Rusty. Check out how they handled the messy situation.
Whoa, that’s a lot of money to be playing around with. Maybe Space City Comic Con should be looking for a new promoter to take over next year’s event – if there will be a next year after this fiasco.
Check out the TMZ interview with Rusty and Kristen below, and tell us in the comments if you’re surprised by what they have to say. We’re beginning to realize just how lucky we are as Sons of Anarchy fans – the actors and actresses really do feel as if we’re important to them, and maybe that’s the silver lining in this whole mess.
