Biography

The heart and soul of Erinsborough, and long-suffering wife of Dr Karl Kennedy, former school principal Susan is caring, dependable and has a wicked sense of humour.

Susan is the mother hen of Ramsay Street, raising not only her own children Mal, Libby and Billy but also playing stepmum to Rachel and Zeke, and surrogate to lovable lawman Toadie.

The Kennedys were once thought to have the perfect marriage, but over the years some much-talked-about indiscretions have shattered the illusion: Karl cheated on her first with sexy secretary Sarah and then, years later, femme fatale Izzy Hoyland (to whom he fathered a child); Susan left and had an affair with a priest, before meeting second husband Alex, whose death left her responsible for his two children.

Susan and Karl eventually remarried, surviving lashings of drama to reclaim their title as Erinsborough's power couple but it wasn't to be for long...

    Susan was wearing a beautiful kaftan top in the hospital scene following the recent wedding marquee fire. Do anyone know what the brand name is as I would love to buy one!!

    Sorry if this upsets a few people but Susan is becoming really irritating as she thinks she's the only person who is entitled to a view on anything. Karl. walk out mate.

    I like the Kennedys though it is a bit strange they are divorcing cos i think that the reason for this is that susan may be possible affair with kate anyone agree!!

    I have watched Neighbours since it started &so i could continue to watch it on channel 5,i had sky tv installed in my home,i am writing this because the Kennedy's are my favourite people in the show,& without them in the show it would not be the same so please writers of neighbours do not split them up,Karl&Susan are meant to be together forever& when is Libby coming back in the show with Ben,& also karl looks totally lost without susan by his side&he cannot manage without her.

    Is Susan a lesbian in real life? Does she have tats on her arms? Why does she always wear long sleeves?
