George Segal and Katey Sagal Are Not Related
George Segal (born on February 13, 1934) passed away on March 23, 2021. His wife, Sonia Segal, told media outlets he passed away due to complications from a bypass surgery.
Segal was married thrice. His first marriage to film editor Marion Freed ended in divorce after 26 years together. His second wife, Linda Rogoff, passed away in 1996, and he married Sonia two years later (though some outlets report they wed in 1996).
Besides Sonia, Segal is survived by his daughters, Elizabeth Segal (born 1962) and Polly Segal (born 1966), from his first marriage.
There’s no evidence of a familial relation between George Segal and Katey Sagal. Even their last names are spelled slightly differently.
Katey Sagal’s father, Boris Sagal, was a Ukrainian-American filmmaker. Her mother, Sara Zwilling, was a singer who went by Sara Macon. Four of their five children, Katey, Joey, and twins Liz and Jean, are actors.
Sometimes people ask if the actress is related to the action star, Steven Seagal. Similar queries arise because of Sagal’s apparent resemblance to Allison Janney. But they are not related at all.
Katey Sagal does, however, have a relation with fellow actress McNally Sagal. Katey’s Sons of Anarchy costar, born Jean Ellen McNally, is married to Katey’s brother, David Sagal.
