‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actress Winter Ave Zoli
Thursday, November 25 by

A former stage actress, ballerina, and one-time resident of the Czech Republic, Winter Ave Zoli is best known these days as the hard-headed porn star sweetheart of bearded biker outlaw Opie Winston on FX’s leading series "Sons of Anarchy." And if you have a hard time picturing this tousle-haired beauty as the type who’d get down on camera for a quick couple hundred, it’s all the better; the contrast between Zoli’s disarming look of wide-eyed innocence and the seedy lifestyle played out by her on-screen alter ego is exactly what makes her character a thrilling fixture in the series.
A word from Winter: "Lyla and Opie are drawn to each other because they both have this sort of sweet sadness."
More pics of Winter after the jump…
