Francesco Quinn

 

Francesco Quinn mini-bio: Perhaps best known for his portrayal of underground drug king Rhah in Oliver Stone's Academy Award-winning Platoon (1986), Francesco Quinn is one of the film industry's most versatile young actors. Intent on following in the footsteps of his father, Oscar winner Anthony Quinn, who had appeared in more than 200 pictures, Francesco has already racked up some impressive film credits, setting him well on his way. He was the lead guest star in an episode of "JAG" (1995) which won the show a 29 share (the highest rating in its history) and had a lead role in TNT's Rough Riders (1997) (TV).

Full name, Francesco Daniele Quinn; born March 22, 1962, in Rome, Italy; son of Anthony Quinn (an actor); brother of Lorenzo Quinn (an actor), Valentina Quinn (an actress), Alex A. Quinn (an actor), and Danny Quinn (an actor); married Julie McCann, 1992; children: Max and Michela.
