Kathleen was the only child of military supply supervisor Josephine, and television sports director Robert Quinlan. She was still attending Tamalpais High School majoring in drama when she debuted as an actress at her age of 19, appearing in the 1972 drama movie “Two Is a Happy Number”. This role went uncredited, so her official debut occurred in 1973, when she was cast for the George Lucas’ drama movie “American Graffiti”. These involvements provided the basis for Kathleen Quinlan’s net worth.

The next several years Quinlan spent mastering her skills through numerous support roles, primarily in TV series, including “Police Woman”, “Lucas Tanner” and “The Waltons”. The real breakthrough in her on-camera career occurred in 1977, when she portrayed the schizophrenic teenage girl Deborah Blake in Anthony Page’s fantasy drama movie “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden.” The movie was nominated for an Oscar while Kathleen earned her first Golden Globe Award nomination. Doubtlessly, all these engagements helped Kathleen Quinlan to establish herself as a young, prominent actress and also positively impacted her wealth.

Although she had appeared in several leading roles through the rest of the 1970s and 1980s, a more notable role came in 1991 when she was cast as Patricia Kennealy in Oliver Stone’s biographical drama “The Doors”. In 1995 Kathleen was cast as Marylyn Lovell, opposing Tom Hanks in the leading role of documentary drama based on a true story – “Apollo 13”, a performance which earned her nominations for both Academy as well as Golden Globe Awards. There are several other memorable big screen performances in Kathleen’s acting portfolio, such as “Lawn Dogs” (1997), “The Hills Have Eyes” (2006) and “Beach” (2007). She has also appeared in various TV series such as, apart from those already mentioned above, “House”, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Chicago Fire”. It is certain that all these involvements have helped Kathleen Quinlan to significantly boost the total size of her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, it has been publically acknowledged that Kathleen Quinlan has been married since 1994, to a fellow actor Bruce Abbott, with whom she has a son.

1Some people are born gardeners, some are politicians. I was an actor. It took a great deal of pain before I figured that out. I didn't relate to most of it.
2My agent was ambitious for me. But going out and chasing it? No, I'd rather work in my vegetable garden or play with my kid. I guess I'm kind of boring.
3Some of the newer folks in the industry, I'm not sure they are familiar with the term acting. They don't understand what it means to play a character rather than just be a personality.
4The heavy spacesuits are spectacular to look at but very hot. Putting one on was like going from chilly London winter weather to the Bahamas in just minutes.
5When not much is happening and there seems to be nothing you can do to change that, you do wonder. But I am an actor, like it or not. I stuck with it and took what was offered.
6It's just too egotistical to think that we are the only lifeform in the universe.
7I like to think of myself as kind of a sculptor, only I sculpt people.
8I am really a sea creature. Just a mammal that lost its fins.
9I filmed underwater for two days in the open ocean with dolphins.
10In a world where there is so much sadness and so much to be afraid of, good things do happen to people. Romance is still something we can find even if we're not consciously looking for it.
11My dream job has already happened.
12At this point in my career, Apollo 13 is a million light years away.
13I didn't think I was an actor and fought it for a long time. Nobody paid for that but me.
14There are not many roles where women are really active.
15I like to go to openings when I'm in it, or friends are in it.
1Was considered for the role of "Clarice Starling" in The Silence of the Lambs (1991), but Jodie Foster who went on to receive an Academy Award for her performance, was cast instead.
2Stepmother of Dalton Abbott.
3Has a son, Tyler Quinlan Abbott (born October 17, 1990), with Bruce Abbott.
4Graduate of Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, California where she was an accomplished diver.
5Her leading role in I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977) was previously intended for Natalie Wood, who had unrealized plans to both produce and star in that film.
6Was a gymnast in high school.
7Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1977" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 29.
