American child actor of the silent era, who was from an extended family of fellow performers known as The Watson Family. Coy Watson Jr. made his film debut in 1921 and appeared in approximately 24 films over a period of eight years, and eventually appeared in more than 60 films. Because he was featured in several of Mack Sennett's popular "The Keystone Cops" comedies, he earned the nickname "The Keystone Kid".
During World War II, Watson served in the United States Coast Guard, based out of San Diego. Coy Watson Jr. was a Los Angeles-based news photographer for CBS Television in the 1950s. He was the head news photographer at KCRA-TV in Sacramento, California, in the late 1950s. He was credited for teaching brother Harry R. Watson photography.
The Watsons were collectively honoured by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce by placing The Watson Family Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1999.
