Aidan Quinn was born a son of Michael and Teresa Quinn and grew up in Chicago and Ireland with his four siblings. He went to Rockford West High School from where he matriculated in 1977.

Quinn’s debut role came in 1984 when he starred as Johnny Rourke in James Foley’s “Reckless” with Daryl Hannah. 1985 was an important year for Aidan, as he played alongside Rosanna Arquette and Madonna in Susan Seidelman’s Golden Globe-nominated “Desperately Seeking Susan”, starred in the Golden Globe-winning drama called “An Early Frost”, and then appeared in the Oscar-winning drama “The Mission” (1986) starring Robert De Niro and Jeremy Irons. By the end of the ‘80s, Aidan had also appeared in “Stakeout” (1987) with Richard Dreyfuss, Emilio Estevez, and Madeleine Stowe, and portrayed Robinson Crusoe in “Crusoe” (1988). His net worth was certainly well established.
In 1990, Quinn had a lead role in Barry Levinson’s Oscar-nominated drama “Avalon”, and then he played in “At Play in the Fields of the Lord” (1991) alongside Tom Berenger, John Lithgow, Daryl Hannah, Kathy Bates, and Tom Waits. In 1993, he had a role in “Benny & Joon” with Johnny Depp, while the next year, he had a smaller part in Kenneth Branagh’s “Frankenstein” starring Robert De Niro, Kenneth Branagh, and Helena Bonham Carter. In 1994, Quinn worked with Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins in the Oscar-winning drama called “Legends of the Fall”, which grossed over $160 million, helping Quinn to increase his net worth significantly.

In the mid-‘90s, Quinn appeared in “Haunted” (1995) with Kate Beckinsale, and in Neil Jordan’s Oscar-nominated biography “Michael Collins” (1996) starring Liam Neeson. By the end of the decade, Aidan had also filmed several notable movies including “The Assignment” (1997) with Donald Sutherland and Ben Kingsley, “This Is My Father” (1998) with James Caan, and “Music of the Heart” (1999) starring Meryl Streep. His net worth was rising steadily.

In 2000, Aidan had a lead role in “Songcatcher”, while in 2002 he played alongside Pierce Brosnan and Julianna Margulies in the drama “Evelyn”. In the mid-2000’s, Quinn appeared in “Song for a Raggy Boy” (2003) and “Miracle Run” (2004) and then starred in the Golden Globe-nominated “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” (2007). By the end of the decade, he had played in “Wild Child” (2008) and “A Shine of Rainbows” (2009), adding further to his et worth.

In 2010, Aidan had parts in Rob Reiner’s “Flipped” and in “Sarah’s Key” starring Kristin Scott Thomas. A year later, he played alongside Liam Neeson in “Unknown”, and then with Marcia Gay Harden in “If I Were You”. Quinn also has series credits to his name, as he played Lieutenant Kevin Sweeney in 13 episodes of “Prime Suspect”.

#Quote
1 (1994 quote in Movieline Magazine) My thing about looking good is that it should be the character. If I'm playing a character who's concerned about his body-an athlete, say-I'll get in shape. If I'm playing a character who doesn't or wouldn't, I don't. I almost never get in shape for a movie, even though I know it would be a good career move. I hate seeing movies where a poor fuckin' sharecropper in the '30s takes his shirt off and he's fuckin' cut, with a washboard stomach and perfectly chiseled muscles that no farmer would ever have, that you can only get from intensive workouts with a trainer, isolating muscles. It drives me crazy! On the other hand, if you're a leading man and you're good-looking, it's definitely a good career thing to do."
2 [on The Lemon Sisters (1989)] It's not a good movie. But it was a fun part. Carol Kane is a friend of mine and she kept begging me to do it. So, I basically did it as a favor to her.
3 (1994 quote) I would love, more than anything, to do an out-and-out farce with huge physical energy. Just because you're from the minimalist school, it doesn't mean you can't go big. I enjoy humor, and it's something I've gotten very little chance to explore. I don't get offered those parts. And if I don't get offered a part, I don't get a part. Ever.
4 [on filming At Play in the Fields of the Lord (1991)] That was an unbelievably difficult and...challenging experience. I don't regret it. But I don't know if I'd go back into it willingly again. It wasn't the jungle - I loved the jungle. We were three months over schedule, and it was a true Heart of Darkness experience in terms of what was happening on the set every day. And what was happening to the movie. And what was happening to the director. And what was happening to the relations between people.
5 (1994 quote on why he believes he's not a bigger star) A lot of it is my fault, because it doesn't interest me. And I break the rules all the time: I should be doing this one, and instead I do The Playboys (1992). I don't care if one's going to be a commercial hit-this I don't like, and this I like. You do have to think career wise sometimes in this business, but I think I think enough about my career. I make a tremendous amount of money, and I'm very well respected. I just don't get the consideration that big stars get as far as scripts go, or as far as input goes.
6 (On filming Songcatcher (2000) in North Carolina) It was fantastic. I would play my guitar on the porch every night after work. I'd have a couple of glasses of wine, a cigar and sing a few songs. I loved it. I get a yearning in my bones for places I lived and worked, like Ireland, the Amazon jungle and now North Carolina. These places are imprinted on your psyche forever.
7 "Well, when I first got sent the script to The Assignment (1997), I thought, 'Why don't they offer this to Andy Garcia?' And it turned out they did. I said, 'Oh, OK'. I had a little bit of a question of 'How the hell am I gonna be believable?' Or 'Will it be that much of a question in the audience's mind that I'm supposed to be Venezuelan?' So, we went with the brown contacts for Carlos and darkened my skin, worked with a good dialogue coach. And then when I heard Andy Garcia was playing an Irish cop in Sidney Lumet's movie [Night Falls on Manhattan (1996)], I stopped worrying about it. But that's one of the great things about being an actor. We get to play dress up. And that's what this movie was for me. Wigs, beards, mustaches, dialogues. Intrigue. It was a tremendous amount of hard work, but fun work for me".
8 There was one moment in high school where I thought, "Maybe I'll take an acting class." And I walked in and saw all the quote unquote theatre people and I went, "Oh God," and walked out. But later, when I was 19, I actually took an acting class and I was very much smitten with it.
9 I'm not a city kind of guy. I'm happiest when I'm tromping through the woods. That's why I don't live in Los Angeles. Being physically away from Hollywood probably loses me a few jobs, but the best ones seek me out.
10 "I was on this remote island a thousand miles off the coast of Kenya. The island didn't have electricity, but some people had generators, and I went to someone's house and there was a video of Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) playing. I think it was the only frigging television on the whole island. That was very bizarre".
11 I think my being such a nomad let me into acting. I was always having to create a new image whenever we moved.
12 I like the level of fame that I have. You get nice tables in restaurants sometimes, but fame isn't something that I find comfortable.
