Curry is well-known for his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the cult musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Curry stole the show in the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a role that helped launch his career.

Curry is not married and has a home in the Hollywood Hills.  Two years ago the actor had another health scare, when serious asthma attacks that followed a chest infection forced him to pull out of ‘Rosencrantz and Gildentsern are Dead,’ a London theater production.
