Aidan Quinn

Aidan Quinn Headshot

Actor

Birth Date: March 8, 1959

Age: 65 years old

Birth Place: Chicago, Illinois

An actor known for the depth and intensity of his performances, Aidan Quinn eschewed the typical leading man roles in favor of complex characters in projects he found artistically appealing, rather than commercially attractive. After honing his craft in the theaters of Chicago, Quinn auditioned for and won his first feature film role - the lead in the romantic melodrama "Reckless" (1984). Even as he continued to perform on stage, he added to his screen credits with a charming turn in the quirky romantic comedy "Desperately Seeking Susan" (1985) and a daring portrayal of an AIDS victim in the made-for-TV drama "An Early Frost" (NBC, 1985). Quinn was endearing as a Baltimore family patriarch in "Avalon" (1990) and played put-upon brothers in films such as "Benny & Joon" (1993) and "Legends of the Fall" (1994). He was affecting as a doomed Irish farmer in love with an underage girl in "This Is My Father" (1998), and as a troubled priest on the short-lived series "The Book of Daniel" (NBC, 2005-06). Never content to be confined to a single genre or character type, Quinn moved with ease from low-key family fare like the coming-of-age drama "Flipped" (2010) to the adrenaline-fueled action of "Unknown" (2011), continuing a career that highlighted diversity over publicity.
