Gerard Kennedy (born 8 March 1932) is an Australian double Gold Logie award-winning actor, best known for his roles in early television series.[1] After playing six different characters in guest appearances in Crawford Productions series Homicide in 1967 he shot to fame as the antagonist in Australian television spy drama Hunter, becoming so popular that his character changed sides, eventually becoming the main character after lead actor Tony Ward left the series. Kennedy won a TV Week Logie Award for 'Best New Talent' for his portrayal of the character.[2] Kennedy followed this with a starring role in police procedural television series, Division 4,[3][4] winning multiple Logie Awards—including two Gold Logies as most popular personality on Australian TV—for his work in the series.[5][6] He has consistently acted in Australian television and film productions since that time.


Later regular television series roles included "Tandarra" in 1976, Bellbird in 1977,[7] the miniseries Against the Wind in 1978, Skyways in 1979–1981, Golden Pennies in 1985, and The Flying Doctors between 1986 and 1989 (non-consecutive episodes). Guest TV roles include appearances in Carson's Law, Prisoner, A Country Practice, Blue Heelers, City Homicide, The Saddle Club, and Neighbours. In 2008, he played Graham "The Munster" Kinniburgh in Underbelly[8] and in Fat Tony & Co..
