Kerry Michelle "Care Bear" Hennessy (1987-present) (Portrayed by Amy Davidson) is the middle child in the Hennessy family, younger sister to Bridget and older sister to Rory.


Kerry is the artistic and sarcastic middle child of the family. Often living in the shadows of her more popular and more attractive older sister, Kerry tends to be rather pessimistic and angry most of the time. She is very passionate about certain things, like her art, and animal rights.

After Kerry's popularity begins to rise, she begins to mature and act more like Bridget. After Paul's death Kerry's personality changes; she starts to be a more nicer person and isn't as depressed.


  • Amy Davidson was actually an adult when she played Kerry. She was 6 years older than Kaley Cuoco, who played the oldest sister. This often happens in a sitcom when a young adult can pass for a teenager.
