The storied Kennedy family has produced a president, ambassadors, an attorney general, senators and plenty of congressmen, but never a professional actor.Kennedy plays the title role in "Antigone," the Sophocles play about a young woman willing to die in order to defend her family's honor and defy the state."Doing something the first time is scary," she said, wearing an black dress in the empty 90-seat theater inside the Church of Notre Dame, close to Columbia University.She's aware that people might be curious about a Kennedy onstage but hopes no one makes the trip to upper Manhattan for that reason alone.Kennedy is named after her great-aunt Kathleen, who also had the nickname Kick and worked for the Red Cross in London before and after World War II.Kennedy, who is dating singer-songwriter Paul Simon's son Harper, isn't sure what her next acting gig will be, but suspects her famous last name won't help.
