Sons of Anarchy guest star Walton Goggins on that Venus-Tig moment

EW: What kind of moments have Venus and Tig shared off-screen, in your mind, since we last saw them together at the bus stop?
I think she’s really seen Tig quite a bit. I think it has been glasses of wine—a chardonnay or a rosé in the afternoon, with his bike kind of coming up. I think they have talked at length about their childhoods and what their respective lives are like now. I think they’ve talked about politics. I think they’ve talked about everything that two people would talk about to further their intimacy and a friendship. It was all there with the two scenes that Kurt [Sutter] had written. It was two people who had spent enough time together off-screen in order to get to a place where Tig would ask for Venus when he his hurt and he needed to be comforted, and Venus would come and tell him what she tells him. It’s not a gender thing, it’s a heart thing. When we’re understood, regardless of who were understood by, we’re understood. There’s no replacing that. It’s outside of the confines of gender.

Do a lot of Sons of Anarchy fans want to talk with you about Venus?
I’ve traveled extensively since doing Venus the first time, and I am amazed at the range of people that come up to me and want to have a conversation about her—from race to income to age. It’s a testament to how big the audience is for Sons of Anarchy, but also to what she’s done for opening that dialogue or allowing certain aspects of our society to understand that community a little better: to not be so scared of people that you really have no reason to be scared of—they’re just people—to find a place in your heart to accept them. That’s been the most rewarding thing of all of this. That’s certainly not why Kurt wanted to do this, or why I wanted to do this. I wanted to challenge myself in somebody that I’ve dreamed of playing since this audition that I had in my early twenties, and Kurt thought it was perfect for his show. As all of these things happen, it was the chemistry between Venus and the guys. It came to a place of well, what can Venus say to the audience about the people on Sons of Anarchy, about Jax and about Gemma, about all the rest of the boys. Those things just happen naturally and organically, and people open up. You saw that with Gemma and how she first responded to her. By getting to know Venus, she opened up her heart to her. I think that’s just the world over, man. When you stop being fearful, then there’s really nothing to be afraid of. [Laughs] And then let’s move on to talk about s–t that really is important.

We know Venus returns in episode 10. What can you say about that?
There is a conversation that happens that is as poetic and—I will start crying talking about it right now—as beautiful and as real as any conversation that I’ve ever read on paper between two people. What it will ultimately say about Tig, and who he is in the world, and how he deals with Venus and how she deals with him—I think you’re gonna see honesty and a vulnerability that is very rarely explored….What did you think about the video of Venus with the gentleman? [Laughs]

Walton Goggins Tells TV Guide About THAT Kiss on Sons of Anarchy

Written by Carol

What did you think of Venus and Tig from the newest episode of Sons of Anarchy? Let me know in the comments, but in the meantime check out what Walton had to say about it to TV Guide!

“Tig was in a place where he needed someone he could depend on and he called for the person who understood him better than anyone,” Goggins says. “Tig instigated [the kiss] and I think it was a line that Venus wasn’t willing to cross in Season 5 with him, but their relationship went in a different direction and they became very close friends. And when intimacy is in the room, more often than not, romance follows, no matter who it is. It’s no different for someone in the LGBT community as it is for a heterosexual. That’s what I thought was so inspiring about that for me.”

Although Goggins admits that Venus was scared at first (“The hesitation was, ‘Oh my God, I have feelings for this guy, and is this really happening? Do I want to cross this line? Because I don’t know if I can stop if I do cross it,'” he says), he says it’s important to understand the bond Tig and Venus share — one that has mostly developed off-screen.

“Wounded people attract wounded people,” Goggins says. “When you have been alone in the world and you find someone who makes you feel less alone in a positive way — regardless if that’s man, a woman or a transgender — that’s the person that you call home. What [creator Kurt Sutter] was able to do was measure it out in significant moments so that you felt the history between these two people and you felt the countless nights they’ve shared a bottle of champagne sitting on Venus’ deck just talking about life. When you have someone who understands your pain and you understand someone else’s pain, that’s what it’s all about.”

And the relationship may not stop there. Goggins will return again in this season’s 10th episode. Can we expect even more intimate moments for Venus and Tig? Whatever happens, it certainly made an impression on Goggins.

“It was the one of the most cathartic, one of the most important things I’ve ever done as an artist in 22 years,” he says. “It was one of those moments that you do this for. It was sublime and what it says about Venus and Tig is as beautiful and poetic as anything I’ve ever seen. You’ll see them in a way you’ve never seen them before.”

First look at Venus Van Dam’s return to ‘Sons of Anarchy’

Written by Carol — No matter how dark things get on FX’s Sons of Anarchy, just remember that Venus Van Dam is on the way. The transgender escort played by Justified‘s Walton Goggins makes her return in the Sept. 30 episode when SAMCRO, in need of information, pays her a visit. As fans know, the cast lights up any time her name is mentioned, and Goggins feels that each time he steps on set.

“I really do, and it’s weird. Because I personally, Walton Goggins, don’t feel that—I feel it as Venus,” he says. “Venus feels it and recipocates that with her boys—all the guys on the show. She just considers them brothers, like seeing family that she hasn’t seen in a while. They’re so kind and so gentle to Venus. It’s so refreshing. There’s no competition, there’s just enjoyment on all sides.”

Venus, who was introduced in season five and returned in season six, will also appear in the final ride’s 10th episode. As creator Kurt Sutter told EW, “We find out what’s been going down off-screen between Venus and Tig [Kim Coates]. It’ll be our love story for the season.”

Kim Coates Teases ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Final Ride, Venus and More

Written by Carol

Check out Kim’s entire interview over at

Basically, everyone in Northern California needs to watch out, because the boys of Charming are on a rampage. Actually, scratch that: everyone in Northern California minus Venus Van Dam should watch out, because everyone’s favorite transgender escort is back, and we all know that Tig would never, ever hurt her.

“Venus is back,” Coates said. “She’s back. When Walton Goggins and I get to do stuff, the commitment that we both have… He and I just giggle when the scenes are over, at the fun that we get to have in the craziest scenarios. Two married-with-children guys. It’s an amazing time that Sutter has given he and I. I don’t know what’s going to happen with us in the last five episodes, but so far so good.”
