Early Career

Sagal was born on January 19, 1954, in Los Angeles, California. She came from a show business family: her parents worked as directors and producers in television and film, while several of her siblings acted professionally.

A talented singer and actress, Sagal landed several roles in television movies in the early 1970s before focusing on her music career. She worked mainly as a background singer and toured with stars such as Olivia Newton-John and Bette Midler. Sagal returned to acting in the 1980s, landing a role in Mary, a sitcom starring Mary Tyler Moore set in a Chicago newspaper office. In the short-lived series, she played Jo Tucker, a hard-boiled columnist. Sagal had better luck with her next series, Married… With Children.

‘Married With Children’

When the show started in 1987, it was about the very broken Bundy family. Sagal played Peg Bundy, who was the opposite of the typical housewife on TV. She was loud and bossy, and neither housework nor her annoying, often sexist husband Al (Ed O’Neill) interested her. The couple had two teens, Bud (David Faustino) and Kelly, who fought with each other (Christina Applegate). This wasn’t a nice comedy of manners. The characters were always putting each other down, and the show was raunchy in a way that hadn’t been done before.

During the show’s run, Sagal lost someone close to her. In 1991, when she was eight months along, she and her boyfriend, Jack White, lost their child. Her character had also been pregnant on the show. To deal with this, all of the episodes where Peg was pregnant were made to be dreams.

After the show ended in 1997, Sagal did a few TV movies and short-lived roles in sitcoms. She also tried something new when she gave her voice to the alien spaceship captain Leela in the animated TV show Futurama by Matt Groening. The show started in 1999, ran for 124 episodes, and gained a cult following. It ended in 2013. She also did the voice of Leela in Futurama: Bender’s Big Score, which was a full-length movie (2007).

More Sitcom Success

In 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, which came out in 2002, Sagal played Cate Hennessy, a mother of three who was very different from her Peg Bundy character. Cate was kind and patient with her three kids and her husband Paul, who was played by John Ritter. Part of the premise of the show was that the parents were switching roles. Cate went back to work as a nurse, while Paul, who was a sportswriter, stayed home and took care of their three teenagers.

Ritter’s sudden death in 2003 was a tragedy for the show. The network decided to keep going with the show, and Ritter’s death was shown by his character dying. Cate was the main character of the show. After her husband died, she cried, comforted her kids, and tried to move on with her life. Later, David Spade and James Garner were added as other family members. In 2005, the show was over.

After 8 Simple Rules, Sagal appeared on popular TV shows like Lost and Boston Legal as a guest star. In 2008, Sagal got a recurring role on the legal comedy Eli Stone and a main role on the drama about a motorcycle club called Sons of Anarchy. Sagal has also made two albums. They are called “Well…” (1994) and “Room” (2004).

Sons of Anarchy on FX, which ran from 2008 to 2014, was Sagal’s home on cable TV. In 2011, she won a Golden Globe for her role as Gemma Teller Morrow while the show was on.

In 2016, it was announced that Sagal would be playing Penny’s mother, Susan, on the popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

On the show Rebel in 2021, Sagal played the main character, Annie “Rebel” Bello.

Personal Life

The writer and producer Kurt Sutter is her husband. They got married in 2004, and their daughter Esmé Louise was born in 2007 thanks to a surrogate. Sagal’s second marriage to White, from 1993 to 2000, gave her two children, Sarah and Jackson. Between 1978 and 1981, she was married to Freddie Beckmeier.
