At an early age of nine, his creative mind and spirit led him to sculpting, painting and art.
By age 11 he entered a statewide California competition and won it with his clay figure of Abraham Lincoln. Before age 18, Mr. Quinn had worked as migrant farm worker, taxi driver, slaughterhouse butcher, newsboy, and a weight boxer. He learned to work his way way out of poverty and hunger through his own strength. How ironic that he grew up in the impoverished barrio of East Los Angeles, only miles from Hollywood, but light-years away from the world of movie stars that would one day welcome him as an Academy Award-winning actor.
Mr. Quinn has performed on stage, on television, and in over 200 films for more than fifty years. He has been recognized and honored as the consummate actor.
