Duncan Kenworthy


Track Record: Best known as the producer of Richard Curtis' hit movies (Four Weddings And A Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually), Cambridge-educated Kenworthy has been chairman of BAFTA since July 2004. As well as the fluffy rom-coms which Brits love/hate - delete as applicable - he's also brought two John Duigan movies to the big screen: Lawn Dogs (with The OC's Mischa Barton) and Steve Coogan's The Parole Officer.
Go Figure: Kenworthy spent seven years working for Jim Henson's company and was a co-creator of Fraggle Rock.
UK OK? Although he has worked overseas in the past, Kenworthy is very much a cornerstone of the current British film industry.
Yes, Really: He once produced an Arabic version of Seseme Street (Open Sesame Street?).
