Katey Sagal Looks Back on Her Most Well-Known Roles
During an April 2021 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Katey Sagal discussed her most well-known roles throughout her career. “Some of the biggest challenges I’ve had is when I was trying to cross over into more dramatic roles. AS I never thought I was funny.”
Katey Sagal also admitted she still doesn’t think she’s that funny. “Everybody would always want me to be in these comedic roles. But for me, you just want to keep doing different things.”
Although she is now in her fifth decade in Hollywood, Katey Sagal stated that the biggest comment she gets is usually about her still working. “I’ve started to say it myself sometimes. I’m like, ‘Wow, this is so great that I’m able to continue to be a working actor and still be interested in the roles that I’m getting to play.’ I feel very grateful about that.”
In regards to taking on the role in Son of Anarchy, Katey Sagal said the experience opened up opportunity. “It opened up creativity as well,” Sagal shared. She then added that Sons fans don’t exactly look like what she thinks Sons fans are going to look like. “I’ll get PTS moms who love Sons. And I’ll be like, ‘Wow, that’s great!’ Sons was basically a family drama.”
