Kevin Kennedy is an English actor, singer and guitarist. He played bottle-lensed Norman 'Curly' Watts in ITV's long running soap opera, Coronation Street between 1983 and 2003.

Before this, Kennedy was in the band Paris Valentinos which also contained Johnny Marr and Andy Rourke who later played in The Smiths, although he never mentions it.

After a short break from acting - recovering from a battle with alcoholism, in May 2000, Kennedy released a song and album named "Bulldog Nation". The single debuted at number 35 in the UK Top 40 charts.

Kennedy returned to Coronation Street a few months later playing a more confident version of his character, Curly Watts. In September 2003, Kennedy left Coronation Street. He became a father to Katie-May (b. 2004) and Grace (b. 2006) with his wife Clare and has a son, Ryan (b. 1987) with former wife, Dawn. He has toured with his band, "The Bunch of Thieves".

In an interview in July 2007, Kennedy said with the right storyline, he'd consider a return to Coronation Street. ["]

Kennedy is famously a Manchester City fan. He has not missed a home game in the last 20 years and once tried to buy the club. After the controversial takeover involving Thaksin Shinawatra of Manchester City, Kennedy is trying to make fans boycott home games due to Shinawatra's dubious human rights record.


Kevin attended Mossley Hollins High school, and went on to study Drama at Manchester Polytechnic, now Manchester Metropolitan University.
