Ventriloquist and comedy legend Keith Harris made his name alongside his puppet duck Orville, and now his daughter Kitty Harris will follow in her dad’s showbiz footsteps
Keith Harris’ stunning daughter Kitty is planning to follow in her dad’s showbiz footsteps – and has landed a role in ITV soap Emmerdale.
Ventriloquist Keith made his name on the stage alongside puppet duck Orville, performing hilarious routines together which carved out a permanent space for him in the acting world.
Sadly, he died in 2015 at the age of 67.
Now 22-year-old Kitty plans to honour her dad’s memory by launching her own acting career, and according to The Sun, has already finished filming her Emmerdale part.
A source told the publication: “Kitty is very talented and is just waiting for her big break on TV.
“She has got a very small part on the soap and has really impressed everyone.”
It isn’t Kitty’s first rodeo when it comes to acting, either, as she recently starred in Blackpool Grand Theatre’s Sleeping Beauty pantomime alongside Dancing on Ice star Hayley Tamaddon.
The insider added that Kitty has been “turning to [Hayley] for advice on the business.”
Kitty already boasts more than 1million TikTok followers, and has been skilled at building her own fanbase after a 2019 appearance on Britain’s Got Talent.
The star wowed audiences with an emotional rendition of With You from the hit flick Ghost, before breaking down in tears when her performance came to an end.
Kitty has even got her dad’s old puppet Orville back into the limelight, appearing alongside him in a video to raise money and awareness for the NHS through the BBC’s Big Night In.
The pair could be seen dancing along a front garden together while miming to Tony Christie’s Amarillo during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Opening up about her dad’s death, Kitty said: “I feel like my dad is always watching me and he’s always guiding me.
“I can feel it and I don’t feel upset really at all because I know that he’s there watching down on me.”
