He’s only made one appearance on “Sons of Anarchy” and didn’t have any lines, but the character known as “Blonde Boy” made a lasting mark on the show during its Season 6 premiere on Tuesday (September 10), which depicted an elementary school shooting. The character was played by 10-year-old Tate Berney.
Berney is no stranger to TV. Even at his young age, he’s a seasoned veteran who lived through the soap opera taping schedule. From 2010 to 2011 he appeared on 89 episodes of “All My Children” as Adam Chandler III. In fact, he was the last actor to play the role when the series ended on TV.
Additionally he’s had appearances on short-lived TV shows like “Eleventh Hour” and an episode in Season 2 of “Samantha Who?” Berney will next be seen as the young version of Seann WIlliam Scott’s character in the movie “Just Before I Go,” which will also be the feature directorial debut of actress Courteney Cox. The film, which is in pre-production, is looking at a 2014 release.
The repercussions behind the actions of Berney’s character on “Sons of Anarchy” will continue to be felt throughout the season and series, according to creator Kurt Sutter. “Sons of Anarchy” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
