Patricia Quinn, Lady Stephens (born May 28, 1944) is an actress best known for her role as Magenta in the perennial cult-hit film The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). Hers were the red lips that appeared in the film's opening song Science Fiction/Double Feature (although the singing voice was that of Richard O'Brien). She has appeared in many film and television roles including the Rocky Horror semi-sequel, Shock Treatment (1981), as well as I, Claudius (1976), Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (1983), and the 1987 Doctor Who serial Dragonfire.

Background

Quinn was born in Belfast, Northern Irelandmarker. She began her career as a Playboy Bunny in Londonmarker, and met the man who would become her first husband, Don Hawkins, when she was 19 years old, in 1963. The marriage ended in divorce, but produced a son, Quinn Hawkins, who was born on September 18th, 1970. Quinn dabbled with acting as a child, appearing in Derek Jarman's Jubilee along with his mother's Rocky co-star Nell Campbell. However he is now a top London barrister and married with one son.

In January 1995, Quinn married the ailing British actor, Robert Stephens, whose wife she had played in the BBC serial, Fortunes of War. She thus became stepmother to his two actor sons by his previous marriage (to Dame Maggie Smith), Toby Stephens and Chris Larkin. Quinn had also played alongside Stephens in the BBC adaptation of The Box of Delights (1984), in the role of Sylvia Daisy Pouncer. Robert Stephens died in November 1995. He had been knighted earlier that year, giving Quinn the title of Lady Stephens.

Quinn's nephew, Jonny Quinn, is the drummer of the Northern Ireland-based band Snow Patrol.
