Tommy Flanagan, the iconic Scottish actor known for his memorable roles in hit series like “Sons of Anarchy,” has been making waves once again with his appearance in the highly anticipated “Power Book IV: Force.” But before he landed the role that would thrust him back into the spotlight, Flanagan embarked on an exciting journey that took him to the picturesque landscapes of Montana for a Western project.
Flanagan’s eyes lit up with enthusiasm when asked about his experience working on the Western project. “I always wanted to do a Western, and it happened in Montana, of all places. It’s so beautiful there. They could call it God’s country, yeah, I see why, man,” he exclaimed. “It’s so beautiful, bro. Honestly, you get up there, and you’re just going to find incredible landscapes, said Flanagan on The Crew Has It with Michael Rainey Jr and Gianni Paolo.
Montana’s natural beauty left a profound impact on Flanagan. He couldn’t help but marvel at the vastness and tranquility of the region. “You know, you’re talking about the highway, and it’s just landing like there’s no f***ing squares and traffic lights. There’s nothing, just space, right? And there’s beautiful laws. That’s a place to retire. Not for me, but I mean, that’s just a place. Definitely a place to retire is Montana,” Flanagan said.
Flanagan didn’t just enjoy the scenery in Montana; he also relished the opportunity to be part of a Western project. “It was a Western,” he revealed, “It starred Bill Pullman, Kathy Baker, and Jim Caviezel. I’m sorry for the rest of the cast; I just… I’m old.” He chuckled, highlighting his modesty.
In the Western, Flanagan played a character right up his alley—a tough, no-nonsense sheriff or marshal. “That’s Scottish accent again in the boon of horses, firing guns, ends up in the old saloons. It was good, yeah, that’s fine.”
Flanagan’s journey from the picturesque landscapes of Montana to the gritty world of “Power Book IV: Force” is a testament to his versatility as an actor. His ability to seamlessly transition from Westerns to contemporary dramas demonstrates his dedication to his craft and his passion for storytelling.
