Katey Sagal has described her role on Sons Of Anarchy as a "dream job".

Sagal, who plays Gemma, told The A.V. Club that she likes working on the show because it is so different from what she has done before.

"I'd been looking for a more dramatic role," she said. "I've done comedy most of my career, which I love, but I wanted to expand.

"And Sons Of Anarchy came along and is sort of a dream job, really - a dream character to play. It's so different from other roles I've played, and it's been challenging, which is just what I wanted."

Sagal added that the cast members all identify with their characters, saying: "Actors tend to absorb what they're playing over a period of time. I've never worked on a lawyer show for a long time, but I imagine the actors all start acting like lawyers.

"On our particular show, all the guys ride, and they're a very colourful bunch of people. Big personalities. They've bonded the way a motorcycle club might, they hang out after work hours. The whole set has taken on a camaraderie that's one of the main characteristics of these motorcycle clubs, really."

Sagal also insisted that she does not find out about the show before the other cast members, despite being married to creator Kurt Sutter.

"Kurt kind of lets everyone know in each season what's going on in broad strokes, but even he doesn't have all the details yet," she said. "So I get that information along with everyone else... [Sometimes] I'll get a little preview of what's to come, but basically I'm just with everybody else."

Sons Of Anarchy continues on Tuesdays at 10pm on FX.
