Bio

Actress Linnea Quigley's career began in 1978, when she portrayed a far from comatose Sleeping Beauty in the soft-core sex spoof Fairy Tales. Quigley truly came into her own in 1985's Return of the Living Dead, in which, playing a punker named "Trash," she danced naked in a graveyard at midnight shortly before being devoured by ghouls. Since that time, she has truly earned the soubriquet "Queen of the 'B's" and developed cult status essaying parts both big and microscopic in such grade-Z horrors as Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Assault of the Party Nerds, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama and Scream Queen Hot Tub Party. Refreshingly good-humored about her career, Quigley has appeared in a "horror workout video" and has written two captivating autobiographies, The Linnea Quigley Bio and Chainsaw Book (1991) and I'm Screaming as Fast as I Can: My Life in B-Movies (1995). In 1987, Linnea Quigley joined the Hollywood executive ranks, serving as producer of Murder Weapon.
