Aidan Quinn

Aidan Quinn was born in Chicago to Irish parents who raised him in Illinois as well as Dublin and Birr. He started his acting career in 1984, but it was in the 1990s that his career grew greatly; he found work alongside such Hollywood stars as Brad Pitt in 'Legends of the Fall', Johnny Depp in 'Benny & Joon' and Sir John Gielgud in 'Haunted'. His many nominations include two Emmys and four IFTAs. Most recently, Aidan was awarded an IFTA for best actor in a supporting role as his character Nicholas Holden in the film 'The Eclipse.' He has continuously starred in films that allowed him to return to his Irish roots, such as 'Michael Collins', 'Song for a Raggy Boy' and 'Evelyn'.
