‘SOA”s ‘Jax’: Charlie Hunnam says a final goodbye to Opie (Ryan Hurst)

The song is called “Goodbye, Dear Friend,” by Deer Tick

While Sons of Anarchy’s Opie (Ryan Hurst)
met a grisly, head-exploding death at the hands of prison inmates while
guards — and three fellow SAMCRO members — watched earlier this season,
the cast said goodbye to the character in a more symbolic way.

“If you wanna see a group of grown men crying like babies, there’s a
video you can watch,” Charlie Hunnam, who plays Jax on the FX biker
drama, told The Hollywood Reporter while promoting his new film
Deadfall.

“Three months after he had finished filming Sons, he still hadn’t cut
his beard off, and he hadn’t shaved in 5 1/2 years since he got the
role of Opie. He hadn’t shaved once,” said Hunnam. “It was a catharsis
that we all needed for him to get rid of that beard and for all of us to
just let Opie die.”

Before taking a razor to Hurst’s face, the cast chipped in on an
oversized samurai sword as a parting gift for the actor. “Most samurai
swords are 38 inches; this is a 44-inch sword — an oversized sword — and
he’s 6-foot-6, so it was perfect for him,” explained Hunnam.

Katey Sagal & The Forest Rangers – To Sir With Love (SOA S05E13) VIDEO

Lyrics: to Sir, With Love
Song on Sons of Anarchy, season 5 episode 13

Those schoolgirl days, of telling tales and biting nails are gone,
But in my mind,
I know they will still live on and on,
But how do you thank someone, who has taken you from crayons to perfume?
It isn’t easy, but I’ll try,

If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters,
That would soar a thousand feet high,
To Sir, with Love

The time has come,
For closing books and long last looks must end,
And as I leave,
I know that I am leaving my best friend,
A friend who taught me right from wrong,
And weak from strong,
That’s a lot to learn,
What, what can I give you in return?

If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start,
But I, would rather you let me give my heart,
To Sir, with Love
