Catherine "Katey" Louise Sagal, born January 19, 1954, is an American actress and singer-songwriter. She is known for her role as Peggy Bundy on Married... with Children, her voice-over role as Leela on Futurama, as Cate Hennessy on 8 Simple Rules, as Gemma Teller Morrow in Sons of Anarchy, and she guest starred on Glee as Nancy Abrams in 2013.
Sagal, born in California, was one out of five children born to Sara Zwilling and Boris Sagal. Sadly before Sagal was 25 she lost both her parents, Sara died from heart disease and Boris died when he walked into the moving blade of a helicopter by accident on the set of "World War III." Her siblings include twins, Jean and Liz Sagal, and brother, Joe Sagal, all of whom are acting business.
She was married to Freddie Beckmeyer for three years before a divorce in 1981. Sagal was married to Jack White and they had two children, Sarah Grace (b. 1994) and Jackson James (b. 1996), before they divorced in 2000. Sagal had a pregnancy with White that was written into the Married... with Children plot line. Sadly her daughter, Ruby, was born stillborn in 1991. The pregnancy was then regarded as a "dream" on the show. She married Kurt Sutter in October 2004, and they had a daughter, Esmé Louise (b. January 2007), through a surrogate mother.
Sagal starred as Peggy Bundy, the lower-class, sex-starved wife of shoe salesman Al Bundy, on Married... with Children for eleven years and had been nominated for six awards while on the show and won one award (TV Land Awards - Innovation award (shared; 2009)). She starred as Cate Hennessy on 8 Simple Rules as Paul Hennessy's, John Ritter's character, wife. The show went on for another season after Ritter's death and was canceled after the third season finished it's run, it was on for three years and Sagal won one award for her portrayal (Prism Award; 2005). Sagal had voiced Leela on the animated science fiction series, Futurama, for fourteen years before it ended (again) on September 4, 2013. Sagal has stared as Gemma Teller Morrow on Sons of Anarchy since 2008 and has had seven nominations and one win (Golden Globe Award; 2011).
Sagal was announced to voice Leela in the The Simpsons and Futurama crossover, titled "Simpsorama", in July 2013. It is slated to air in either May 2014 or in the Fall of 2014 on FOX.
Sagal was announced, in May 2014, to have joined Pitch Perfect 2. She will portray Hailee Steinfeld's character's mother.
