Patricia Quinn was born in Belfast, Ireland, on May 28th 1944. Her career began in the theatre and then studying at London's Drama Centre in the very early 60's. She met her first husband, Don Hawkins, an actor and director, in 1963, at the age of 19. The later went on to marry and produce one child, their son Quinn in 1971.Their relationship was one that lasted two decades, until Patricia left Don for Robert Stevens.
If rumours are anything to go by, Patricia was a 'serial cheater' during her first marriage, conducting affairs, including one confirmed affair with Meatloaf during the making of Rocky Horror!
To many fans she is the only "real" Magenta, with her seductive voice and distinctive red hair. Pat has kept Rocky Horror in her life with conventions and other things like that. Her and Richard O' Brien have grown close over the years after doing Rocky Horror and Shock Treatment. The famous Rocky Horror Lips belong to Pat and she is known as "The Lips"., although the voice is Richard O'Brien.
Pat was a Playboy bunny
Patricia is very, very talented although she had only five lines in Rocky Horror.
1. Your lucky, he's lucky, I'm lucky, we're all lucky
2. Come along the master doesnt like to be kept waiting.....
3. I grow weary of this world....
4. But I thought you liked them they liked you
5. Master dinner is prepared.
(she then had her wonderful ending speach)
Patricia went on to appear in Shock Treatment with her closest friend and Rocky costar, Richard O'Brien.
Richard and Patricia met in late 1972. They have been very close friends for 29 years, and they still share the same raucous personality. Richard introduced Patricia to pot while filming Rocky Horror....
They are very much like brother and sister, and get on with each other's families, Richard's children, Linus, 28, Joshua, 16 and Amelia, 10, love Pat like an Aunt and Pat's son, Quinn, now 29, loves Richard like his uncle.
Patricia is also a very dignified widow, and although losing her husband in November 1995, affected her deeply, she smiled through it all and often laughs it off, knowing her hubbie wouldnt want her to be down.
