Trivia (5)

Son of Rick Hurst
Started his own film production company called Fast Shoes.
In Sons Of Anarchy was originally planned to have a recurring part in Season 1, but he was immediately promoted to a main cast member in Season 2, when he became a fan favorite.
Originally his character on Sons Of Anarchy, Harold "Opie" Winston and William Lucking's character, Piermont "Piney" Winston, weren't related. However, when filming the pilot episode of the show, seeing the two of them in their biker outfits and their towering heights of 6'4" and 6'5" respectively, they looked so much like father and son that creator Kurt Sutter re-wrote their characters to be father and son on the show.
His ancestry includes English, Scottish, and Polish.

Personal Quotes (5)

I am real, real picky with what I decided to do. I want to make sure it's new and at the same time that it's in the same color of what I have played before. Not to pigeon hole myself but I don't like to do fluff.
One of the important things is that a lot of people forget that a biker club is a secret society.
I think it's particularly a distinctively American concept that resonates with American culture through biker culture. A motorcycle is an independent thing. You're like, 'I don't want to ride in a car with this person. I want to be independent and ride by myself. But, let's ride in a group. Let's be independent, together.'
Bikers, in general, have just been so attractive to people. Photographers would follow them because there's this weird warrior gravitas that comes with it. The bikes are loud, they have tattoos, they have artwork that they all wear on their jackets.
A motorcycle is an independent thing.
