Why did Ryan Hurst leave Sons of Anarchy?
Ryan Hurst loved his role in Sons of Anarchy and it wasn’t his choice to leave. However (spoiler alert!) the decision to kill off his character was made long before the script was even written. The character of Opie was sacrificed in order to progress the Jax storyline.
“I couldn’t stop crying. I tried to talk him out of it, I went through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ stages of grief. He wasn’t sure of the particulars yet, just that it was gonna be bloody and gonna be noble… I didn’t see the way that it served the story. But then again, it’s not necessarily my position to comment on that. It’s Kurt’s show that he created, and whether it’s the right decision or the wrong decision, remains to be seen.” – Ryan Hurst on his character getting killed off in SOA
