    Looking at most of the primary actors, their networths are all above 2.5 million and looking at their careers on imdb, the bulk of their money would most likely be from SOA. An actor in all 95 episodes earning as little as $25K/ep would have earned almost $2.4M

    Plus, they gained a lot of recognition due to the show.

    A handful were already known, but a lot more of them will likely get more work due to their participation in this show.

    Just more ways for them to showcase Jax's buttocks.

    Scandia101 mentioned it, but they did take questions from some of the fans that were at whatever event that was. One woman asked about the homeless girl (who she was or something like that) and Sutter pretty much said he left that ambiguous so people could draw their own conclusions about who she was or how she fit in. I found that revelation less than satisfying.

    And yes, they were pretty hammered.

    I thought the finale was great. The mayhem part was confusing, the Jesus references were hokey, and the ending was a little cheesy but overall, I thought it was a fitting ending to the series.

    The after show was still awful, though. I hate it when actors sit around and act like their job is all spiritual and meaningful. Your just an actor, dude. Get over yourself!

    OK - let's do your math.
    Let's assume each of these actors were in all 95 episodes and got $25K an ep (no way in hell)
    Total = $2,375,000 divided by 7 years = $339K a year
    What were they living on?
    So - how much of that $2.4 is left after taxes and living expenses?

    Charlie Hunnam is in fact a millionaire - but not from SOA - he owns a chain of hamburger joints in the UK, sells several product lines (apparently vodka in the UK), and has a ton of endorsement deals.
    Plus he is a movie star.

    Is Katy Segal a millionaire? Yes probably, but she has been in the business for years.

    Ron Perlman? Maybe.

    Jimmy Smits? Maybe but not from SOA.

    The supporting cast?
    Mark Boone Junior, Kim Coates, Tommy Flanagan, Theo Rossi, Dayton Callie, Maggie Siff, Ryan Hurst.

    How bout the guys that play Happy and Ratboy?

    I seriously doubt it.

    What's scale for actors?

    Because for writers, it's $25K per script (assuming only one writer) for a one-hour non-network show.

    Sutter later made a reference to the either the cue cards or teleprompter saying "Kevin says", or something to that effect.
    Leading me to think either Kevin Ryder got called away at the last minute, or Sutter thought he should be hosting the final Afterword.

    I think/hope Sutter was joking - he's been in recovery for 20 years.

    If you believe Celebritynetworth.come - they are all millionaires. Katey sagal is supposed to be worth 30 million. Smits 25 million. Hunnam only 8 mil.

    The supporting cast folks are in the 3-5 million range

    didn't look up happy or ratboy...or quinn...

    They're all richer than me, probably including the kid who played Abel.

    Quinn (Rusty Coones) is not really an actor. He's a Hell's Angel and owns a custom motorcycle business.

    http://www.ocregister.com/articles/coones-379851-illusion-sons.html

    Just like the ex-Hell's Angel president (the guy in jail with the voicebox earlier in the show's run), he was brought in to add authenticity within the biking community.

    It didn't really work, for as they may watch the show, show up at a rally with an SOA patch or even a T-shirt and you're likely to find a frosty reception at best!

    Future Trivial Pursuit question, "What were the last words in the final episode of Sons of Anarchy and who said them"?

    According to my closed captioning, Chicklis' last word was "Jesus".

    I wonder who had the most lines this year, Quinn or Montez.

    I'm not entirely sure I buy the "Family and Club can't work" message.

    Have you seen a family that can work with the club? The Tellers were torn apart by Clay. Opie's family was utterly destroyed from top to bottom. We saw in detail what it did to Jax. Bobby, Tig, Chibs, Juice and Happy all appeared to be bachelors, although we know Tig had a daughter.

    What family survived the club?
