One tweet read:

“That’s crazy they should limit the layers or make them thinner. Hell the whole cast should balance out some of their wardrobes better. They all work hard in the heat, NO joke!”

HURST REVEALS HIS HOSPITALIZATION

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the “Sons of Anarchy” actor revealed that his thick clothing made it difficult to survive the summer weather. He said:

“I landed in the hospital once this year from heat exhaustion. I’m in a leather trench coat and two layers under that in Georgia in the summer. It’s no joke.”

Additionally, the actor has to wear a Darth Vader-like mask to get into his character as Beta fully. However, Hurst still loves playing the mysterious role.

BETA’S MYSTERIOUS STORY

He took part in forming the backstory of Beta, which he did in collaboration with the showrunner, Angela King, since season nine.

He said of the mystery of the character:

“After you see under Darth Vader’s mask [in ‘Star Wars’], you don’t need to see him much more after that. I was like, ‘Let’s just pose, let’s just let the audience keep wondering up until the very last minute.’”
