Concerning his professional career, he changed his name to Terry O’Quinn, in reference to his Irish origins, and not to be confused with another actor already called Terrance Quinn. He made his first film appearance in Michael Cimino’s film “Heaven’s Gate” (1980), but didn’t rise to fame until 1987 and 1989, after landing roles in the two hit films “The Stepfather 1” and “The Stepfather 2” in which he played a serial killer. For the above mentioned role in the first film, the actor received nominations for Saturn and the Independent Spirit Awards. In 1994, he appeared as a guest star in the series “The Tales of the Crypt”, and straight afterwards he made three appearances in “The X-Files” (1995) series, each time playing a different role. From 1996 to 1999, O’Quinn portrayed Peter Watts in the crime drama series “Millennium” created by Chris Carter, and meantime he also created characters in the series “JAG” (1995 – 2002). His net worth was rising steadily.

In 2002, he began playing the recurring role of the FBI Assistant Director Kendall in “Alias” (2002 – 2004), the the creator of the series J.J. Abrams, invited him to play in “Lost” (2004 – 2010), in which he created the character of John Locke, for which in 2005 he was nominated for an Emmy Award as the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, and won this award in 2007. He is also the winner of a Saturn Award as the Best Supporting Actor on Television which he received for the same role. Then, he played Arthur Manchester in the series “Falling Skies” (2012 – 2013), for which the actor was nominated for another Saturn Award. Since 2015, he has been playing the role of Tom Tavner in the series “Patriot”, additionally, in 2016 Terry landed the main role in the series “Secret and Lies”.

To conclude, all the above mentioned roles have increased the amount of Terry O’Quinn net worth.

1Quiet reserved but charming manner
2Bald head and bold blue eyes
3Soft soothing voice
1I've told the producers that I miss the old John Locke. I wish he hadn't found those damn buttons sometimes. But these ups and downs reflect everybody's. You can't always choose the way things go. That's life.
2I don't think I could play a character that I couldn't relate to somehow. I'm not unfamiliar with frustration, anger, shame, helplessness and a load of other emotions that make up our psycho-soup. I try to focus on that frustration, that sense of unfairness, and multiply it.
3I so rarely turned down a role, that I can't say I have any regrets in that regard. There were many roles that I would rather not have done, but having a home and family requires that we sometimes do things we would rather not. I have done a few roles that I've never watched, and if I happen to be flicking through channels and one pops up, I quickly move on. It's hard enough to sustain some self confidence without being reminded of things we'd rather not revisit but, in the end, it comes with the territory.
4It looks like a camera on a stick. - when asked what the "monster" from Lost (2004) looks like.
1Although he played Chris Nash's father in Mischief (1985), he is only nine years his senior in real life.
2Has English and Irish ancestry.
3He is one of eleven children.
4His brother Thomas Anthony Quinn is also an actor, who acts and teaches theatre in central Illinois.
5Actually learned how to properly throw and handle knives for his role on Lost (2004).
6Was the chief architect for the infamous "Locke" baseball field designed mostly in part for the Three Village Little League.
7Has an Irish Terrier named Reggie.
8In an episode of Lost (2004), his character Locke's parents were played by Kevin Tighe and Swoosie Kurtz, who are both only eight years O'Quinn's senior.
9Has appeared in episodes of two different series with the same name. Both Millennium (1996) and Lost (2004) have had episodes featuring O'Quinn called "Walkabout".
10Attended and graduated from Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
11Attended and graduated from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.
12Has two sons: Oliver Quinn (b. 1984) and Hunter Quinn (b. 1986).
13Is one of the few cast members of Lost (2004) who did not have to audition, because his former collaborator (from Alias (2001)) J.J. Abrams thought of O'Quinn for the part of Locke before the actor was even offered it.
14Although always friendly onset, he keeps private and mysterious habits apart from his younger Lost (2004) co-stars, who often get together for wild parties when not shooting. He keeps this enigmatic aura so they will regard him similarly to the way they regard his mysterious character Locke.
15Not many know that he is a talented guitarist and singer. He is a particularly big fan of Neil Young and can apparently do a dead-on impression of him.
16Has had roles in both of J.J. Abrams's hit television series Alias (2001) and Lost (2004).
17Has been experienced in percussion since high school.
18Has been balding since his early 20s and has appeared with a partially or entirely shaved head in most of his films.
19He elongated his last name to "O'Quinn" from his real name of "Quinn" to distinguish himself from another person named Terry Quinn already acting in films.
20Grew up in Newberry, Michigan and was raised Roman Catholic.
21Is good friends with 1013 Productions' Chris Carter, having appeared in most of his work: as a guest star in two episodes of The X-Files (1993), a supporting role in The X Files (1998) and recurring roles on Harsh Realm (1999) and Millennium (1996).
