Katey Sagal

A versatile actress, Sagal has entertained audiences in a variety of dramatic and comedic roles throughout her career. She recently appeared in the independent film I'm Reed Fish and the tele-film 3 Wise Guys, as Helen on the television phenomenon Lost and Nancy Gilroy on The Shield.

In addition to her busy acting schedule, Katey has devoted a significant portion of her time and retraced her steps to her first love: singing and songwriting. With the support of record label Valley Entertainment, she released her album Room in 2004. Room is the first record for Sagal since her 1994 debut, Well. Room is a combination of original songs penned by Katey including Life Goes Round, Daddy's Girl and Wish I Were a Kid, and memorable classics like Feel a Whole Lot Better and (For the Love of) Money. A critically acclaimed singer and songwriter who began performing at the age of five, Katey was a 'Harlette' with Bette Midler for three years as well as a background singer for Bob Dylan, Olivia Newton-John, Etta James and Tanya Tucker.

Katey gained national attention for her role as the outrageous Peg Bundy in the ground-breaking, highly-rated long-running series Married... with Children, for which she earned three Golden Globe and two American Comedy Award nominations. Most recently, Katey starred in the ABC series 8 Simple Rules..., and as the voice of Leela, a beautiful one-eyed alien, in the animated series Futurama.

In her first job on television, Katey joined Mary Tyler Moore in the television series Mary and has starred in the television movies Smart House and Mr. Headmistress (both for Wonderful World of Disney), as well as Chance of a Lifetime, Trail of Tears and She Says She's Innocent.

She has also starred in the feature films Love Stinks, Mail Order, The Good Mother, and the 2000 Sundance Film Festival favorite Dropping Out.

Katey currently resides in Los Angeles, California with her fabulous husband, Kurt Sutter, who counts executive producer and writer of The Shield and Sons of Anarchy among his many credits; her three amazing children, Sarah, Jackson, and Esme; and three great dogs, Lumpy, the lovely Lola, and Blue.
