"Michael Rennie was ill/ The Day The Earth Stood Still." These famous opening lines from "Science Fiction, Double Feature," the intro musical number in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975), mark one of Irish actress Patricia Quinn's most iconic roles - she was the face behind the glossy red lips that seduced audiences around the world. The theater-trained actress (and one-time Playboy bunny) created the role of oddball Magenta in the 1973 London production of "The Rocky Horror Show," and starred in the BBC mini-series "Shoulder to Shoulder" (1974) before appearing as the otherworldly housemaid in the feature adaptation of Richard O'Brien's retro-futuristic musical. Quinn acted opposite Derek Jacobi on the star-studded BBC series "I, Claudius" (1976) and played an incestuous doctor in the unofficial "Rocky Horror" sequel "Shock Treatment" (1981). With later roles in another cult musical - Monty Python's 1983 satire "The Meaning of Life" - and Rob Zombie's devil music horror film "The Lords of Salem" (2012), Lady Quinn (she inherited the title from her second husband, the late actor Sir Robert Stephens), showcased the vibrant energy and versatile talent that took her from the casino to the screen and beyond.
