Alan Fletcher As Karl Kennedy

Karl is husband to Susan and father to adult children Libby, Mal and Billy, and 8 year old Holly. Holly is the result of an affair with Izzy Hoyland during one of the several hiatuses from his marriage to Susan. Karl works hard to be a good father: he’s fair but firm, approachable and wise. A good relationship with his children probably keeps Karl’s demons at bay… most of the time.

Karl’s weakness is his vanity. He needs to be respected by men and admired by women. He has a very healthy ego and can be quite stubborn and hold grudges. 

 


He doesn’t like to lose an argument and can be explosive if pushed too far. Susan likes an argument as much as he does, and both will stand their ground. Even though Karl believes he’s rarely wrong, he will usually give in to Susan just to keep the peace. Susan rules the roost – much as he’d hate to admit this.

Karl fancies himself an older statesmen type: the man people go to in a time of need. He likes to seem approachable, and is proud of the fact he’s progressive, though sometimes there’s the sense he is trying too hard.

Sentimental for his youth, he pines for the glory days when he was an ambitious up-and-comer with the world at his feet. He likes to keep the spirit of his youth alive by keeping up with young people; their trends, their passions, their whims…

Karl hopes for a second lease on life now his children have all left home. He has a passion for music and finds an avenue for this with his band ‘The Right Prescription’. He also fancies himself a bit of a culinary sensation and enjoys whipping up a feast. Karl’s currently investing a lot of time and energy into reaffirming his relationship with Susan after their recent reconciliation.
