Her father was Austrian Jewish and her mother was Irish Catholic, and she attended a Catholic high school, Dominican Commercial in Jamaica, N.Y.

In 1975, Bach separated from her first husband Augusto Gregorini and moved back to the United States with her two children. In 1977, her role as Anya Amasova in The Spy Who Loved Me gained her recognition as an international sex symbol and the following year she appeared in the movie Force 10 from Navarone.
