Sons of Anarchy” actress Katey Sagal discussed her role on the show at Comic-Con in San Diego this past weekend.

Sagal portrays Gemma Teller Morrow on "Sons" who is the wife of Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), a former leader of the Sons of Anarchy motorcycle group, and the mother of Jax Teller, the current president of the group. 

At Comic-Con, Sagal said it’s enjoyable to portray the sides of Gemma that are often in conflict on the show. (Gemma has a tumultuous relationship with her husband Clay and her husband and son can be rivals.)

“As an actor, it makes it interesting," she said, according to UPI. "That's part of the journey of being an actor, that you're exploring the human condition in whatever form that’s going on. There are a few things in the season that I'm like, 'Really?! Okay.’”

Sagal has played the character of Gemma since the beginning of “Sons,” which debuted in 2008. The show has been nominated for an Emmy for its theme music and Sagal won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama in 2011 for her work on the show.

Sagal starred on the 1987 sitcom “Married with Children” and the 2002 show “Eight Simple Rules.” She voices the character of Leela on the animated show “Futurama,” which will finish what is presumably its final season this September.
