The versatile product of a hardworking showbiz family, Katey Sagal was born in Hollywood, Calif., on Jan. 19, 1954. Before making it big as buxom housewife Peg Bundy on the Fox sitcom "Married ... with Children" (1987-97), she worked as a backup singer for marquee acts such as Bette Midler, Bob Dylan and Olivia Newton-John.

Sagal's over-the-top take on love and marriage -- punctuated by Peg's signature red bouffant -- earned her four straight Golden Globe nominations. But she went on to prove that she's nothing like her most famous character, playing a cycloptic spaceship captain on the animated sci-fi comedy "Futurama" (1999-2011) and a firmly grounded matriarch on "8 Simple Rules" (2002-05).

In 2011, Sagal won her first Golden Globe Award for her work on "Sons of Anarchy," an offbeat cable drama that follows the members of a California motorcycle club.
