Cheryl Kennedy (born 29 April 1947) is an English actress.
She was born in Enfield, Middlesex, educated at a convent and first appeared at the age of 15 at Stratford East Theatre Workshop in What a Crazy World. She enjoyed success as a stage actress, notably in West End musicals such as the 1967 revival of The Boy Friend. Other West End theatre credits included 'Victoria' in Half a Sixpence where she starred alongside Tommy Steele at the Cambridge Theatre, 'Winnie' in The Matchgirls, 'Belinda' in Jorrocks at the New Theatre and Alan Ayckbourn's Absent Friends at the Garrick Theatre.

She appeared in the TV musical Pickwick for the BBC in 1969. During the 1970s she appeared in several British films, including the Lust segment of The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins (1971) and as Jo Mason in the Dick Emery film Ooh... You Are Awful (1972). Television credits include The Strauss Family, The Sweeney, Schalcken the Painter, Hari-Kari and Sally, When the Bough Breaks, It's a Lovely Day Tomorrow and Time and Time Again, both for ATV.
