Family patriarch Edward Quartermaine has dispensed advice on corporate takeovers, hostile acquisitions and various business machinations to his children and employees for more than two decades on General Hospital. Actor John Ingle knows a thing or two about passing on what he's learned in the entertainment field, as well. For three decades he taught drama before he ever began his successful career as an actor. In February 1999 John received the award for Outstanding Scene Stealer at the nationally televised Soap Opera Awards.

"Edward likes to think that he's taught everyone around him how to be ruthless," John explains about his character. The Quartermaine grandsons are proving that they've learned their lessons well, from whatever the source. John Ingle has been credited as the source for dozens of notable acting careers.

John founded the performing arts departments at both Hollywood and Beverly Hills High Schools, in 1955 and 1964, respectively. Among his stellar students were Albert Brooks, Nicolas Cage, Richard Dreyfuss, Joanna Gleason, Barbara Hershey, Swoosie Kurtz, Stefanie Powers, David Schwimmer and Jonathan Silverman. John retired from teaching in 1985 and began an acting career the same year. He joined General Hospital in 1993.

John was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. His family moved throughout the midwest before settling in Tujunga, California, where he finished high school. His thespian pursuits had begun years before, in elementary school, and followed him until he attended Occidental College to study theater and journalism. He received his theater degree in 1950 and got his teaching credentials the next year.
In 1951 John met Grace-Lynne Martin, an accomplished singer/actress. The couple married in 1954. The next year John began teaching at Hollywood High during the day and at Los Angeles City College at night. He also taught afternoon classes at UCLA for 15 years. After nine years at Hollywood High, he moved across town, where he eventually spent 21 years teaching at Beverly Hills High.
John's acting credits include the feature films Batman and Robin, Death Becomes Her, Robocop II, Heathers and Senseless. Children and adult audiences alike know his voice as Cera's dad on the animated feature film Land Before Time (parts I-VIII). His television credits list Beverly Hills, 90210, Cheers, Dallas, Doogie Howser, M.D, Night Court and many others. He also enjoys the distinction of being kissed by supermodel Cindy Crawford in two Revlon commercials. Most recently John had a recurring guest-starring role on the ABC hit television comedy, The Drew Carey Show.
John and Grace-Lynne have five daughters and nine grandchildren. The couple enjoy ballroom dancing, tennis and long walks through their Altadena, California, neighborhood.
