Karen Drury (born June 1958, Leeds, West Riding of Yorkshire[1]) is a British actress from Wetherby best known for her role as Susannah Farnham (later Morrissey) in Channel 4 soap, Brookside which she played from 1991 to 2000. Drury claimed in an interview with the Sunday Express shortly afterwards that she quit the show as she did not like the direction they were taking her character in and that she was angry that the show bosses were not going to reconcile her and her on screen husband Max as she felt they worked best as a team. She has also had small roles in several Yorkshire Television programmes including A Bit of a Do, Emmerdale and Heartbeat and a role in Granada Television soap, Coronation Street in 1978.[2]

On 13 July 2011 she appeared on the BBC1 daytime soap Doctors.
