A memorable moment for Kevin was being in the opera Tales Of Hoffman, sitting on the lap of Placido Domingo and his favorite role was starring alongside his wife Tracey in the television show “The Neighbors”. They auditioned separately and they both landed the roles. The crew saw them visiting in each other’s dressing rooms between breaks. Towards the end of the day they were talking to the crew as if everyone knew they were married. The entire crew burst out laughing once they realized that they had thought something “scandalous” was going on. The crew had just realized they were married. He has been published in the book “The Star Wars Vault” as well as several newspapers and magazines. Kevin has a few trading cards as the character Ali-Gator and his Ewok characters. There is a Ewok toy with a catapult that was made after his character Chubbray in Return of The Jedi. Chubbray the Ewok has a signature white slash across his face with brown fur. Check out his most recent work on the television show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. Kevin lives by his own quote: “No role is too small for Kevin and Kevin is not too small for any role”.
