Academy Award-nominated actress Kathleen Quinlan enjoyed a lengthy, diverse career that encompassed roles as an ingénue, romantic leading lady, supporting player, and on the rare occasion, formidable character actress. Audiences were given their first brief glimpse of her in George Lucas' sophomore effort, "American Graffiti" (1973), followed by more substantial parts that led to her first starring role in the affecting drama "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" (1977). She ably carried the Joe Dante-directed segment of the tragedy-plagued "Twilight Zone: The Movie" (1983), and gave a devilishly seductive performance in the Jim Morrison biopic "The Doors" (1991). Quinlan elevated her status in director Ron Howard's NASA docudrama "Apollo 13" (1995) with a role that earned her critical raves. She had high-profile co-starring roles in features such as the thriller "Breakdown" (1997) and the space-horror movie "Event Horizon" (1997), as well as enjoyed a run as the star of her own legal drama with "Family Law" (CBS, 1999-2002). Quinlan occasionally revisited the horror genre with films such as the remake "The Hills Have Eyes" (2006), as well as periodic returns to television for work that included a run on the final season of "Prison Break" (Fox, 2005-09). Versatility was truly the hallmark of Quinlan's impressive acting career; one in which she either led a production's cast or lent it invaluable support, each with an admirable artistic dexterity.
