Kathleen Quinlan was born in Pasadena, California, the only child of Josephine (Zachry), a military supply supervisor, and Robert Quinlan, a television sports director. She grew up in Mill Valley, Ca, and got her break in acting when George Lucas came to her high school to cast for his movie American Graffiti (1973). She followed up her one-line role four years later with Lifeguard (1976), and then several roles in the late 1970s and 1980s. Her breakthrough performance came in 1977, as Deborah in I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977). She was nominated for an Academy Award in 1995 for Apollo 13 (1995). She starred in the TV series Family Law (1999), but her contract stipulated that she cannot work later than 6 pm, so she can be home with her husband, She currently works in Film and Television (2015).

Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1977" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 29.
Was 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.
Stepmother of Dalton Abbott.
Has a son, Tyler Quinlan Abbott (born October 17, 1990), with Bruce Abbott.
Graduate of Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, California where she was an accomplished diver.
Her 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.
Was a gymnast in high school.
I like to go to openings when I'm in it, or friends are in it.
It's just too egotistical to think that we are the only lifeform in the universe.
I like to think of myself as kind of a sculptor, only I sculpt people.
I am really a sea creature. Just a mammal that lost its fins.
I filmed underwater for two days in the open ocean with dolphins.
In 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.
My dream job has already happened.
At this point in my career, Apollo 13 is a million light years away.
I didn't think I was an actor and fought it for a long time. Nobody paid for that but me.
There are not many roles where women are really active.
