54 years ago today, the world got to meet the badass that became Sons of Anarchy’s very own Happy Lowman – that’s right, on this day in 1964, David Labrava was born! Despite having been raised in Europe, he was born in Miami, FL. Best known for his role as Happy, he is also a real life Hell’s Angel and a motorcycle enthusiast, as well as a writer and tattoo artist.
David found his love of motorcycles at a young age – as a kid he was hardcore into dirt bikes and got his first real Harley Davidson when he was just 17 years old. He was originally hired to be Sons of Anarchy’s technical advisor, until Executive Producer Kurt Sutter realized he would be perfect for the part of Happy. David wrote and directed Sons of Anarchy Season 4, Episode 10: “Hands”.
