Annabeth Gish is one of the new cast members on Sons of Anarchy as it continues its final season.
Gish did not appear in episode 1 but is reportedly going to be introduced in episode 2.
Jarry replaces Sheriff Eli Roosevelt, who was killed in the stunning season 6 finale.
“Gish’s character, Althea Jarry, will call on her years of experience in Stockton’s Organized Crime Unit to pursue the murderers of former Sheriff Eli Roosevelt and Tara Knowles (the latter of whom was butchered to death via meat fork by Katey Sagal’s Gemma),” reported TV Line.
“Jarry quickly realizes she’ll have to work with SAMCRO to keep the peace, even if that means playing by their rules. But she has a few of her own that might surprise the club.”
Gish may be best known for playing Charlotte Millwright on The Bridge, while her other roles have included the shows X-Files, West Wing, and Brotherhood.
While Gish is a star actress, she actually opted to go to college instead of acting.
“My parents called me their wise little baby. I was mature when I was 4 or 5. My brother and sister were older, so I was raised by four adults. I don’t know if any of us were prepared for some of the things we had to face in the movie business. We’ve learned as we went along,” she told Roger Ebert when she was 17, and had a role in the film Mystic Pizza.
“We’re trying to create a balance between the two worlds. For example, I decided not to move out to Los Angeles and plunge into the business and totally give up my education. I’m going to Northwestern next fall. I am going to prove that you can be in Iowa and not be in L.A. and not be in New York and still be a movie actress.”
Gish went on to attend Duke University, graduating with a Bachelor’s in English in 1993.
Other new cast members on SOA this season include Marilyn Manson (Ron Tully) and Courtney Love (a kindergarten teacher).
