Patricia Quinn

Biography: Patricia Quinn is best known for originating the role of Magenta the maid in 1973 cult stage musical The Rocky Horror Show (and in the subsequent 1975 film version known as The Rocky Horror Picture Show). Previous to this, she had bit parts in low-budget 1970s British films- such as Up The Chastity Belt and The Alf Garnett Saga- as well as appearing in Van der Valk and in a miniseries entitled Shoulder To Shoulder as suffragette Christabel Pankhurst.

After starring in Rocky Horror, Patricia then went on to play Livilla in the BBC's acclaimed 1976 adaptation of Robert Graves' I, Claudius novels. She also went on to portray The Ghost of Christmas Past in a 1977 adaptation of A Christmas Carol opposite Michael Hordern and John Le Mesurier.

She reunited with several Rocky Horror cast members in 1981 to play Dr. Nation McKinley in unofficial sequel Shock Treatment.
