The Sons Of Anarchy Character You Likely Forgot Courtney Love Played

Throughout its lauded, seven-season primetime run, FX's taut, hyper-violent biker drama "Sons of Anarchy" proved a massive hit with both critics and viewers alike (per Rotten Tomatoes). And almost a decade after the series aired its bracing-yet-divisive finale, both factions continue to talk about "Sons of Anarchy" like it's still airing episodes on a weekly basis. That has a bit to do with the fact that the series remains a substantial hit in both syndications, and in the streaming realm.

"Sons of Anarchy" continues to find new fans in both arenas as well, with viewers reveling as much in the Shakespearean audacity the show frequently indulged in as much as the extraordinary cast of actors who appeared on the show during its small-screen tenure. While said fans clearly still have a lot of love for long-time stars like Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, and Ron Perlman, they'd likely be quick to point out the show also boasted a wildly impressive list of guest stars, including Walton Goggins, Joel McHale, and Peter Weller. Heck, even legendary horror scribe Stephen King made an appearance on the show. And in case you've forgotten, so too did '90s rock icon Courtney Love. Here's who she played on "Sons of Anarchy."

Love played a concerned schoolteacher in the final season of Sons of Anarchy

Courtney Love is, of course, best known for fronting the influential '90s grunge outfit Hole, as well as for her tragic relationship with late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. She has, however, compiled a pretty impressive list of screen credits over the years, scoring roles in 1986's "Sid and Nancy" (with Gary Oldman), the Oscar-nominated drama "The People vs. Larry Flynt" (alongside Woody Harrelson and Edward Norton), and the 1999 biopic "Man on the Moon," which found her trading lines with Jim Carrey, Danny DeVito, and Paul Giamatti.

Given her proclivity for acting, it was hardly a surprise Love would appear in a lauded television series like "Sons of Anarchy," which had also employed fellow '90s rocker Marilyn Manson. What was surprising was the role Love was cast in. And in case you've forgotten, Love turned up in the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" as Abel Teller's (Evan and Ryder Londo) protective teacher Ms. Harrison — which coincidentally happens to be her real last name.

The soft-spoken, modestly dressed character was a far cry from the oft-outlandish persona Love had become known for, but the star brought a beautifully low-key sense of empathy and grounded humanity to the role rarely seen in her past performances. She brought a serious "take no s***" attitude to the mix as well, as evinced in her typically heated interactions with Abel's fiery grandma Gemma (Katey Sagal). In doing so, she helped craft one of the more memorable supporting characters to appear in a final season of "Sons of Anarchy" that fronted quite a few.
