The majority of us recognize Katey Sagal from her early years as Peggy Bundy from Married With Children. For those that do not, let me tell you a bit about her. She was a lazy, bon-bon eating wife of a broke shoe salesman named Al Bundy, played by Ed O’Neill. She was not the brightest cookie in the box and usually did not like her husband.
Then there is Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal). She was the matriarch of the biker gang SAMCRO. Gemma Teller-Morrow was ruthless and cunning, she could get whatever he wanted just by batting her eyelashes. Obviously, there I a huge difference between these characters. Peggy Bundy was ditzy and did not have it in her to hurt a fly. Gemma Teller-Morrow, on the other hand, could hurt anyone that would cross her path if provoked. Gemma Teller-Morrow was also not a ditz like Peggy Bundy. This goes to show just how versatile an actress can be.
Next time you are thinking about watching Sons of Anarchy, tune into Married With Children and compare the differences. It is clear that Gemma Teller-Morrow is far more a badass than Peggy Bundy.
