Ashley Tisdale, now better known as Emma Jean to Sons of Anarchy fans, recently spoke with Collider.com about her experience while on the Sons set. She had nothing but kind words to say and lots of enthusiasm about the show and the cast, including her great appreciation for the show itself. This is what she had to say regarding Charlie:
Your role on Sons of Anarchy involves some action scenes. Did you enjoy playing the more physical aspects? Is that something you’d like to do, in the future?
TISDALE: Yes, that was definitely so much fun. I did a bit of stunt action scenes in a movie I did a long time ago, but it was nothing compared to this. It was actually my first time ever being on a motorcycle, and Charlie Hunnam was the first person to give me a ride. I thought that was amazing because I am a big fan of his, and I had the best time. I don’t get starstruck because I’ve met Angelina Jolie and tons of people, but because I watch the show religiously, I just was so starstruck. Every single time I’d be sitting in hair and make-up and somebody else would come into the room, I would freak out. The worst was the 2nd episode that I had to do because everybody in the show was there. I was shaking, I was so nervous, but it was the coolest thing ever. I’d love to do more action stuff, in the future.
What could you say about Emma Jean’s relationship with Jax (Charlie Hunnam)?
TISDALE: Jax really comes through for her, but she’s just there to do her job. She’s a worker and an earner. Because of what happened, in the last episode, we don’t know who told on the club, and she is definitely a candidate for being one of the people who might have. She doesn’t trust everybody, but Jax comes through for her, in a way.
What was the most memorable part of working on the show?
TISDALE: Every single moment I was there, I was just so excited to be with a cast that is extremely talented, extremely grounded, and so nice. I just learned so much from being around them, with Ron Perlman, Katey Sagal and Charlie Hunnam. They are also a really tight-knit group. It was so great to see that they actually are like all the guys. I think they had gone camping that weekend, which I thought was so cool. I had the best time on the show. It was such a great experience.
