Katey Sagal is well-known for redhead Peggy Bundy role of the humorous TV series ‘Married with Children’. She is a housewife but she is described as notorious for her laziness. Also once she was described as “the laziest bitch in Chicago“, then you can really understand what kind a housewife she was. Since the cult TV sitcom has been filmed, it’s been 20 years since. But for unknown reason today Katey Sagal likes more the role from series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ where her third husband is the author.
The cult family Bundy has created an army of fans around the world, even though it is miles away from the ideal television families that ruled small screens to their arrival. With its eccentric humor this series conjured up a grotesque caricature of the life of a middle-class American family. The role of Peggy Bundy was originally intended for Roseanne Barr. Katey Sagal’s clothes she wore in the series as a helpless housewife Peggy brought her out of her closet as she thought her character should be dressed like a ‘former waitress’. It was the same with the soaked wig that we remember. Although Peggy was not particularly educated and he always complained that her husband did not like her because she did not have sex life, her role was marked by her life.
Catherine Louise Sagal was born in Hollywood in 1954, and she started playing with only five years. She graduated from the prestigious California Institute of Art, and originated from the real showbiz family. Father Boris, a Russian Jew who emigrated to the United States, was the director. In some of his career he was acting, and while he was recording the movie ‘Girl Happy’, in 1965 Katey met Elvis Presley, who acted in it.
Mother Sarah was a productor, and Katey had brother Joey and two younger twin sisters Liz and Jean Sagal, who also acted as actors. Her sisters starred in the television series ‘Double Trouble’. Her mother died of a heart attack when the actress was 21, after which she took care of twins, and her father died in 1981 on a set of ‘Third World War’ film. The death of her parents completely broke her, so Katey began to be drugged and alcoholic, but in 1986 she applied for treatment of addiction and she was completely discharged.
With Kurt Sutter, the author of ‘Sons of Anarchy’, was married in 2004 at an intimate ceremony in their Los Angeles home. The role of Gemme Teller is just written for her. The couple has daughter Esmé Louise who was born surogat mother because Katey’s complications during her previous pregnancy could no longer stay in her condition.
