Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Kim Coates admits he hadn't even seen a play before he attended the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Signing up for an acting class on a whim, he immersed himself in theatre and within two years had majored in Drama. First finding work on stage, he became the youngest actor to take on the title role of "Macbeth" (1986) at the legendary Stratford Theatre in Ontario. His film debut with a minor role in "The Boy in Blue" (1986) was followed by a spot in an episode of "Miami Vice" (NBC, 1984-89) entitled "Viking Bikers From Hell." This was a strangely prophetic start to his TV career, as he would find fame many years later playing the Vice President of a motorcycle club in "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008-2014). Coates continued to mix theater, film and TV including playing Stanley Kowalski in the revival of "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1988) on Broadway; a lead in horror sequel "The Amityville Curse" (1989); a recurring role in "Street Legal" (CBC, 1987-1994) and picking up two Gemini Award nominations for his work on HBO TV movie "Dead Silence" (1997) and "Poltergeist: The Legacy" (Showtime, 1996-99) in 1998; alongside high profile appearances in "Pearl Harbor" (2001), "Black Hawk Down" (2001) and "Silent...

Gaining a reputation as a great character actor with an edgy look after memorable stints on "Prison Break" (Fox, 2005-09) and "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-2012), Coates landed the key supporting role of Alex 'Tig' Trager in critically-acclaimed cable crime drama "Sons of Anarchy."
