Jo Kennedy (born 5 August 1962) is an Australian actress, film director and screenwriter. She won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 35th Berlin International Film Festival for her role in the film Wrong World. To American audiences, she is best known for playing Jackie in the 1982 film Starstruck; even though the film never had a proper US release, it found a cult following on cable television. The film spawned a soundtrack album, which includes the hit single, "Body and Soul", sung by Kennedy. It was written (as "She Got Body She Got Soul") by Tim Finn of Split Enz. The single made number five on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart in May 1982.
