Dayton Callie, born in Dumbarton, Scotland in 1946, is a Scottish actor who plays the role of former Charming Police Department Chief Wayne Unser on the FX original series Sons of Anarchy. Making his debut on the episode "Seeds" in the series' first season, Dayton plays the role of a corrupt cop who sees the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club as a benefit to the town due to them successfully keeping drugs and violence out of Charming, California, the club helps protect the population from many other unwanted things, like ruthless developers, such as Deputy Hale's older brother Jacob Hale Jr.. He retired from the Police Department before it was shut down, and his ties to SAMCRO increased. He was often seen helping however he could with the Teller family, and by helping do some of the club's dirty work. He eventually rejoined law enforcement as an investigator for Althea Jarry, investigating the murder of Tara Knowles, and, playing a recurring role through the series' first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons, was killed while trying to arrest Gemma Teller Morrow to prevent her from being killed by her son Jax Teller. He met his demise in the Season 7 episode "Red Rose", and appears once more in the series' finale episode, "Papa's Goods", in the series' seventh, and final, season.
