Who is Martin Kemp?
There are two tiers to Martin Kemp’s fame. The first was his role as a bassist in 80s New Romantic band Spandau Ballet, and the group’s success with songs such as Gold – gold! – and True. His second wave of fame came in the 90s, when he and his brother Gary (also a member of Spandau Ballet) turned their attention to acting. After both starring in a film based on the Kray twins, Martin found success with his role as villain Steve Owen in soap EastEnders. In 2002, after a car chase with arch-nemesis Phil Mitchell, Steve was killed off.
