Harrington was born 4 September 1959, in Melbourne, Australia.
On Neighbours he first appeared as best man at his father Harold's wedding to Madge in 1988, before becoming a regular in 2003. He was originally chosen partly for his facial resemblance to actor Ian Smith. His character was killed off in 2005 in a plane crash alongside on-screen wife Lilijana and on-screen daughter Serena.
Harrington has appeared in several other television series, including Blue Heelers and SeaChange. He also was a contributing writer for the program All Together Now. More recently, Kevin appeared in "The Western Red Hill" where he played a cop named Barlow. He played Chris Corrigan's brother Derek Corrigan in the Australian miniseries Bastard Boys in 2007. In 2008, he starred in the hit TV show Underbelly as Moran family patriarch Lewis Moran.
Harrington has also appeared in the movies The Dish, Australian Rules and The Honourable Wally Norman. For the latter, he received a Best Actor nomination at the 2004 Australian Film Institute Awards.
Before getting into television, he worked in theatre and did stand-up comedy. He also provides voice-overs for radio and television advertisements. In particular, Harrington provided a voice-over for a Victorian Government sponsored television advertisement promoting Vocation Education & Training (VET) and Technical and Further Education (TAFE) courses in October 2006.
He is married and has two daughters Megan and Kaitlyn. Megan once had a recurring role in Neighbours playing Boyd Hoyland's first girlfriend Heather.
