Terry O'Quinn's Millennium Cast Profile
Terrance "Terry" O'Quinn (born July 15, 1952) is an Emmy Award-nominated American actor. He is known for playing the titular role of The Stepfather and, in recent years, Peter Watts in Millennium and John Locke on the popular ABC TV series Lost.
O'Quinn was born in Newberry, Michigan. He attended Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. Before graduating, he worked as a security guard. O'Quinn has been married to his wife, Lori, for 25 years. Most of that time they lived in Finksburg, Maryland, but after Lost began airing, the couple decided to follow the example of O'Quinn's co-stars and move to Hawaii, where the series is shot. O'Quinn and his wife are the parents of two sons, Oliver and Hunter, who live on the West Coast of the United States.
O'Quinn began acting in the 1970s. He has appeared in such films as Tombstone, Heaven's Gate, The Rocketeer, and as the deranged serial killer in The Stepfather. His early television roles include guest appearances on Miami Vice (episode "Give a Little, Take a Little"), Earth 2, Moonlighting, Star Trek: The Next Generation (episode "The Pegasus"), The New Twilight Zone (episode "Chameleon"), Homicide: Life on the Street (episode "Hate Crimes"), and a recurring role as Rear Admiral Thomas Boone on JAG.
In 1995, O'Quinn began a series of notable guest appearances in The X-Files, Millennium, and Harsh Realm, all produced by Chris Carter, who also cast him in the film The X-Files: Fight The Future.
After a string of recurring appearances on Alias (2002-2003), as the FBI Director Kendall, O'Quinn became a favorite of television producer J.J. Abrams. Following a seven-episode guest run on The West Wing in 2003-2004, O'Quinn received a call from Abrams indicating that the producer wanted to cast him, with no audition needed, in his new television drama Lost. In 2005 and 2007, O'Quinn received an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for his work as John Locke on Lost. O'Quinn admitted on the TV Guide Channel that he did not have much faith in the series Lost at first, calling it "The Mysterious Gilligan's Island of Dr. Moreau."
O'Quinn holds the distinction of having played four different characters within the extended X-Files / Millennium continuum (the two shows being classed together since both Lance Henriksen's character of Frank Black and Charles Nelson Reilly's character of Jose Chung have appeared in both shows) :
- Lt. Brian Tillman (1995) "Aubrey"
- SAC Darius Michaud (1998) X-Files: Fight the Future
- Unnamed Shadow man (2002) "Trust No 1", credited as Terrence Quinn.
- Peter Watts, a recurring character in seasons 1 through 3 of Millennium
