Donal Logue on ‘Sons of Anarchy’: “I’ve come home from work and been genuinely disturbed by the stuff I was engaged in earlier in the day”

SoA_donal-logueJust when you thought Sons of Anarchy couldn’t get any more disturbing,  violent, or darker, star Donal Logue, who has been featured on the show as Lee Toric since last season, confesses to The Hollywood Reporter that we haven’t seen anything yet. He spoke about the difficulty of shaking off his character after work and what he knows about Toric’s dark past.

Logue admits to the magazine, “I will say that after working on Sons this season is maybe one of the first times I’ve come home from work and been genuinely disturbed by the stuff I was engaged in earlier in the day. It was hard to shake. It goes pretty dark.”

Audiences have been captivated by Logue’s character since his debut last season, particularly because of Toric’s mysterious past.  Logue explains that showrunner Kurt Sutter (who also plays Otto on the series) filled him in on Toric’s backstory, but didn’t tell him everything. 

Logue says, “I had a conversation with Kurt before we started. He laid out a scenario that made a lot of sense to me. It sounded to me like he had written a lot of it with me in mind. I felt pretty comfortable immediately, knowing who this guy was. And then the rest of it is just these small things that you carry with you in your pocket, that you feel about the person. And not in some ‘actorly, super schmactorly way,’ I’m not like writing an 800-page Bible — and by the way I respect people who do stuff like that. That really want to figure out what his mom would make him for breakfast and stuff. I felt like it was a cloak I could wear really easily.”
