Sons of Anarchy: Who Is That Homeless Girl That Keeps Showing Up?

Who is the homeless girl in Sons of Anarchy that Jax keeps seeingThrough the seasons of Sons of Anarchy, this homeless girl keeps showing up on and off.

When she was first seen, Gemma (Katey Sagal) encountered her outside a mini-mart and despite some inner challenge, gave her a few bucks. Since then this homeless girl keeps making sporadic appearances in the show. I wouldn’t think anything of it except that she was first seen in Charming, but then she was spotted by Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in Ireland. As far as I can tell, only Gemma and Jax see her.

To technically answer the question, the homeless girl has made 6 appearances in Sons of Anarchy and is played by Olivia Burnette.† She’s been performing since a very young age and been nominated for a number of “Young Artist Awards” over the years.† Aside from Sons, she’s also appeared regularly in shows like The Torkelsons, Almost Home.† Over the years, she’s had one-up appearances in shows like The Closer, Dexter, NCIS, CSI: NY and such.

Back on Track:

Show creator Kurt Sutter was once asked about this girl, but he was being very mysterious, saying

“She is who she is and she represents what she represents and thatís really all Iíll say.”

Though in another piece, he refers to her as a mythical point, and hopes to play out this story as time goes on, aka, future seasons. (See the 1:00 minute mark of video below)† That’s fascinating.

What it seems like is that she shows up when either Gemma or Jax are sliding into tough times. She’s like a warning herald, like when The Silver Surfer precedes Galactus before big G devours planets!† Is she a warning symbol or angel for mom and son?† All we do know is the moments she’s been seen are moments we can’t miss.† I do hope Kurt gets a chance to expound on this mystical character.† I’d look forward to how Kurt will pull mystical into the world of the Sons of Anarchy.

Kristina… yes AND no.
The ghost herself is the form and/or looks of the teenage girl we saw in those few episodes. But if you dwell on some of her appearances, she first appeared in Charming, then in Ireland, then in the cemetery way north of Charming. Then at the dumpster where Juice dropped the murder weapon and finally on the courtroom steps. That’s a pretty busy human to get around like that. (That and Kurt Sutter always said the ghost was just something extra he liked adding to the mix.)

The homeless woman is actually a teenage girl who’s mother was killed by the sons of anarchy.

Steve, that is one creatively genius interpretation of the woman! Well thought out! I Like! (Where’s the damn ‘like’ button around here? Oh crap, it’s my site… I better add one!)

Could she be the woman who holds the hour glass while standing in front of the Grim Reaper? I have seen various pieces of art work with this woman. When she gave Jax the cloak she stated it was time. Jax is a reaper, is he not? Just my take on it all. Great show, I will miss watching it.
