Catherine Bach (born Catherine Bachman; March 1, 1954) is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Daisy Duke in the 1979-85 CBS primetime television series The Dukes of Hazzard and Margo Dutton in the film African Skies.
Bach's first screen appearance was in the Burt Lancaster murder mystery, The Midnight Man, shot in Upstate South Carolina in 1973, in which she played the murdered coed, Natalie Claiburn. It was released in June 1974.
Her next role was as Melody in the 1974 film Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.
In 1985, she served as the model for the figurehead for the schooner Californian.
In 2004, Catherine reprised her role as Daisy Duke in voice over for The Dukes of Hazzard: Return of the General Lee video game, which helped re-spark interest in the popular 1979-85 CBS-TV show. She has also appeared as Daisy in two CBS-TV movies, The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! (1997), and The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood (2000). She also maintains her own official website, which is also partially dedicated to the series.
Bach was born in Warren, Ohio, the daughter of Norma Kucera, an acupuncturist, and Bernard Bachman, a rancher. Her maternal grandparents were Mexican and her father was of German ancestry. She spent part of her teen years in South Dakota, where she visited her grandparents in Faith, South Dakota, and graduated from high school in Rapid City, South Dakota.
She married producer and director David Shaw, the son of actress Angela Lansbury, in 1976, but the couple divorced in 1981. Bach married Peter Lopez, a well known Hollywood, California area entertainment lawyer, in August 1990. They were married until Lopez's untimely and tragic death, which was ruled as an apparent suicide by gunshot wound, in 2009. Together they have had two children, teen daughters Sophia and Laura.
