Chibs Telford

stock photo : LOS ANGELES - SEP 8:  Tommy Flanagan arrives at the "Sons of Anarchy" Season 5 Premiere Screening at Village Theater on September 8, 2012 in Westwood, CAActor Tommy Flanagan portrays everyone's favourite Scotsman of the group, Chibs Telford. We learned early in the show that Chibs got his nickname after receiving his facial scar from a rival, Jimmy O. After doing a little bit of research I discovered that the actors scars are actually real. Tommy was working as a DJ at a nightclub before he started his acting career. That is when he received the scars from an altercation outside the nightclub he was working at. He was leaving the night club to go home when a robber attacked him and left him with a 'Glasgow smile' on his face.

Most of the members of Sons of Anarchy group are American, but Chibs was born in Scotland and raised in Ireland, eventually joining the SAMBEL chapter in Ireland. He eventually was received in the Sons of Anarchy Motor Club chapter based in Charming, California. It's in Charming when we see Chibs become very close to Jax and very supportive of Jax when he became president of the club. We also witness how warming and fatherly like Chisb was to Juice when Juice was dealing with his personal issues in season four.

Just like many of the other characters in the show, Chibs has escaped death a few times. He spent half of season two in a hospital bed after a sever explosion that was set up against the group during a 'business deal'. It's during this time that we learn more about Chibs and his life he left back home. We are introduced to his wife Fiona and their daughter Kerrianne. 

Throughout the rest of the show his character is pretty quiet. Besides being supportive of Jax, Chibs is seen throughout the whole series being a mentor to many of the characters. He is often compassionate to his close friends. When half-sack was learning to box to raise money for the club Chibs was there to help him train and learn.
