Kenny Doughty is an English actor who trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He is represented by the Conway Van Gelder Grant talent agency in London.


Doughty won the Best Actor award at the Palm Beach International Film Festival in 2005 for his performance in The Aryan Couple.

He is currently playing new regular DS Aiden Healy opposite Brenda Blethyn in ITV's Vera.[1] Following this he will star opposite Sheridan Smith in ITV's Black Work, expected to air mid 2015.[2]

Doughty completed a sell-out UK tour of Simon Beaufoy's stage play The Full Monty in 2013. The play, in which Doughty played Gaz, was a huge critical success and as a result was transferred to the Noël Coward Theatre in the West End, London for a run in 2014. It received an Olivier nomination for Best New Comedy in 2014.[3] The play was directed by Daniel Evans and produced by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers.

Doughty's previous theatre work includes Peter Gill's Small Change playing in Cardiff; Troilus & Cressida at the Old Vic, directed by Dominic Dromgoole; and Present Laughter at the Royal Exchange Manchester, directed by Matthew Lloyd.

Personal life[edit]

Doughty is married to actress Caroline Carver. He is an avid Manchester United football fan.
