‘Chibs’ is a man of few words, fiercely loyal and dedicated to the club in FX’s critically acclaimed series Sons of Anarchy. And the actor who plays Chibs, Tommy Flanagan, is also a man of few words. But it doesn’t take a lot of talking to understand Flanagan’s proud to be a part of the series which has engaged, entertained, and surprised viewers for five seasons.
 
Flanagan and the rest of the cast took part once again in the annual gathering of movie/comics/TV fans known as the San Diego Comic Con. Sons of Anarchy‘s panel is always a big draw, and before taking part in the Q&A with fans, Flanagan sat down to talk to us about the show and what could be happening in the final two seasons of the series.
 
“It’s pretty huge,” said Flanagan about season six. “I think Jax has…you know, he’s always been rough and tough and kind of boyish, I think this season he really becomes a man. This season gets very dark, very dark.”
 
And what does Chibs think of Jax as a leader? “Well, to me, I’m fiercely, ferociously loyal to Jax because I’ve known him since he wa a little boy. He’s like my nephew, my son, whatever, and to see him evolving as this character and then to take over the world that Clay once ran and try not to play the same guy that Clay was – not in an acting way, but in a story way – is very interesting. But it’s tough because it’s such a violent, nasty, and horrible world. He’s trying to make things good and right, but it ain’t easy.”
 
Flanagan also talked about whether Chibs will be left standing at the end of the series, his favorite scenes, and how he loves to come to work each day:
