Goggins will reprise his role as the goddess Venus Van Damme. His portrayal as a transgender escort has been considered as one of the most favorite among the show’s cast members. Goggins’ character first appeared in SOA Season 5 in three episodes including “Orca Shrugged” in 2012, “Salvage” and “Sweet and Vaded” in 2013.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly (EW), Goggins elaborated how his character came to be. He was offered the role by Sutter while he was filming “Django Unchained” in New Orleans. He shared that Venus Van Damme got her name from his character, “Cletus Van Damme,” in “The Shield.” Both Sutter and Goggins previously worked on “The Shield.”
“He texted me while I was filming [Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained] down in New Orleans, and he said, “Were you serious?” I said, “About what?” He said, “Are you going to play Venus Van Dam?” I said, “Have you written it?” And he said, “Yes.” I said, “Send me the pages.” And I just fell in love with her immediately. It was really important to both of us that we really go there, we make her a three-dimensional person with feelings. Sassy, sweet, smart, and beautiful,” said Goggins in the EW article.
Goggins’ other film and TV credits include his role as Mr. Stone in “Community,” “Django Unchained,” “Machete Kills” and “Lincoln.” Movie News Guide (MNG) previously reported that Goggins will join Marilyn Manson as a guest star in the show’s final season. Manson will play thr role as Ron Tully, a white male supremachist inside prison.
Moreover, there have been news in the internet that “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam had died due to a motorcycle accident. The online hoax was bunked by Hunnam himself in an interview with TMZ. He shared that his friends were scared about his alleged death. Hunnam plays the starring role of Jackson “Jax” Teller in SOA.
