Irish actor Glenn Quinn acquired a small, but devoted, following from appearances in the television situation comedy Roseanne, and as the half-demon Doyle, in Angel, the spin-off from Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. Quinn was less successful on the big screen. His first role was as a drummer in the John Travolta rock musical Shout (1991), in which he shared a kiss with Gwyneth Paltrow, but later parts - in the horror movies Dr Giggles (1992) and Campfire Tales (1997), and Live Nude Girls (1995) - were forgettable. Ironically, his most recent film, the noir drama RSVP (2002), was voted the best of the film festivals in its category, and was released to good reviews last autumn.

The Rest of the Story …

In many obituaries online, they repeat the story that “…with his television money, he bought a half-share in the Los Angeles nightclub Goldfingers, and would visit it quietly every week without patrons realising he was the co-owner” Sadly these publishers could not be more wrong. It was true that he was a co-owner of the now defunct Goldfingers in Hollywood, unfortunately he showed up quite often, drunk and stoned, hitting patrons up of money and being a general nuisance. His partners quickly bought out his share.

And all that money he made from Roseanne and Angel? It was all gone by the time he died from drug and alcohol abuse. His family even had to raise money for his funeral and grave marker.
