Unless you’ve been living atop Shay mountain there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard of the WGN’s hit drama Outsiders starring David Morse, Gillian Alexy, and Ryan Hurst to name a few. Which also means that you haven’t met Sally Ann and Hasil, played by Christina Jackson and Kyle Gallner. Sally Ann and Hasil or Sasil as they’ve been nicknamed by their fans are the literal definition of “they came from opposite sides of town.” Sally Ann is a wide-eyed ingenue who wants better for herself than her town or current station in life has to offer whereas Hasil wants for his family to need him.
On a superficial level, Sally Ann & Hasil couldn’t be further apart except if you get to know them and you’re able to look beyond their surface differences they are actually more alike than they are different. Both are outsiders within their respective communities and neither of them feels quite at home there nor do they feel comfortable anywhere else. Sally Ann has at least a high school education whereas Hasil hasn’t ever received a formal education and had only recently begun how to read. They’re wandering souls who have never wandered very far from where they were born but still somehow managed to find each other. And it is with each other they discovered where they belonged. It is yet to be determined if they will be able to maintain their relationship and build upon their love with the outside world bearing down on them.
Fans of Outsiders have fallen in love with the star-crossed pair, so much so that they’ve created whole videos dedicated to them and their story. Below are a few of our favs.
