Actress Maggie Siff has a lot to thank for as she recently rang her 40th birthday on June 21st, International Business Times said. Apart from the fact that her character, Dr. Tara Knowles in the hit FX series "Sons of Anarchy," earned her a newfound fame on television, the brunette will currently take time to enjoy the series in its final season as a fan, and a new mom at that.
Siff's character, who was killed off by Katie Sagal's matriarch role in the previous season's cliffhanger, was grateful for the fact that she can sit back and not care in the world about working as she will be busy caring for her newborn baby Lucy.
When she was asked about whether anyone in the show would have a happy ending in the final season, she told ZapIt.com in an interview that she has not bothered to read the script for the final season.
"It's an interesting question. It's hard to imagine 'Sons of Anarchy' ending happily but I can imagine some kind of redemption for some people along the way, maybe," she said.
If she is referring to redemption for her character's death at the hands of her husband's mother Gemma, which is played to delicious consistency by Sagal, then it would be a nice parting gift to fans, especially those who have sympathized with Siff's character in the previous season. IBTimes said, in Season Six, Tara had to fake both a pregnancy and a miscarriage just to keep her family away from SAMCRO and Charming. However, the morally-compromised doctor was not able to carry out her plans when she was found dead in a kitchen sink with a carving fork in her head.
She also explained to Entertainment Weekly about her character's ultimate demise on the show. She stated, "My eyes sort of rolled back into my head. My first concern...as an actor was how to make it believable, that she would do this and go to these lengths."
She later recalled an encounter with a fan who was apparently touched with her untimely death in the show. Siff told ZapIt.com, "I encounter it in weird ways. You know, like when I go to the supermarket. A woman walked up to me yesterday in the supermarket crying. I feel like there are certain women who were really, really moved and were like 'Oh my God, what happened?' and were genuinely shocked."
The final season of "Sons of Anarchy" is set to debut its first episode on FX in September this year.
