Patricia Jude Francis "Patsy" Kensit (born 4 March 1968) is an English actress, singer, model and former child star, known for her television and film appearances. Her films include Lethal Weapon 2 and she has been married to rock stars Jim Kerr and Liam Gallagher, as well as herself fronting the band Eighth Wonder. In May 2004 she returned to television acting, taking the role of Sadie King in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale. Born to James Henry Kensit (1915–1987) and Margaret Rose Kensit (née Doohan, 1947–1993), a native of Ireland who died from breast cancer, Patsy Kensit has an older brother Jamie. Her mother was a publicist; her father was an associate of the notorious London gangsters the Kray twins. Nicknamed "Jimmy the Dip", he was also reportedly an associate of the rival Richardsons, running long firms for the gang. He served time in prison before Kensit was born; she believed he was an antiques dealer. Her paternal grandfather was a robber and counterfeiter, and her brother's godfather was Reggie Kray. She attended Corona Theatre School. Kensit is a practising Catholic, having begun attending church after her mother's death.
