Name: Catherine Bach.                                                             
Born: 1 March 1954                                                                 
Catherine Bach (born Catherine Bachman on March 1, 1954) is an American actress.   
She is best known for playing Daisy Duke in the television series The Dukes of     
Hazzard and for playing Margo Dutton in 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 Melody in the 1974 film Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.               
Catherine became a TV icon when, unhappy with the wardrobe provided for her       
Daisy Duke character, she fashioned short shorts from a pair of jeans. Thanks to   
the actress and her character, the term "Daisy Dukes" is now synonymous in         
popular vernacular with cut off denim jean shorts. Over 5 million copies of her   
now famous "Daisy Duke" poster have been sold.
