Biography

With a diverse career that spanned film, television and music, actress Katey Sagal became a household name playing one of the small screen's most hilariously ill-suited parental figures, Peggy Bundy, on the raunchy, long-running sitcom "Married with Children" (Fox, 1987-1997). Decked out in a red bouffant hairdo and spiked high heels, Sagal spent 11 years playing Peg, though finding out the hard way that it was to her detriment once the series was canceled. Unable to shake the persona of a lazy, wisecracking housewife fond of bonbons and tight Spandex, Sagal struggled to regain control of her image by tackling a wider diversity of television roles while settling into voicing an animated character on "Futurama" (Fox, 1999-2003). She also revived her long-stalled music career, having previously been a noted backup singer prior to acting, and released a couple of noteworthy albums while playing small clubs around the country. Eventually, she was cast by third husband and show creator Kurt Sutter for the role of scheming matriarch Gemma Morrow on the biker drama "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008- ), which finally allowed Sagal to wipe away any vestiges of Peg Bundy for good.
