'Sons of Anarchy' Actor Alan O'Neill Dies at 47


Alan O’Neill, who played Hugh on “Sons of Anarchy,” died Wednesday at the age of 47 in Los Angeles. A cause of death has not been released, but O’Neill had a history of heart problems and drug use, according to TMZ.

“It’s with sadness I confirm the passing of Alan O’Neill, a brilliant funny and kind human being,” Annette Walsh, O’Neill’s agent, told People Magazine. “My thoughts are with his partner, children, family and friends at this time. I’ll personally miss knowing Alan isn’t sharing the planet with us any longer, despite the miles between L.A. and Dublin. Alan was only ever a phone call away. May he rest in peace.”

O’Neill was born in Ireland and appeared on Irish TV shows like “Fair City.” He starred in seven episodes on “Sons of Anarchy” spanning from 2013 to 2014.

About a month before O’Neill’s death, David Labrava, another cast member of “Sons of Anarchy,” announced his 16-year-old son, Tycho, died by suicide.

“Sons of Anarchy” co-star Timothy V. Murphy shared his condolences on Twitter.
