Francesco Quinn, an actor and the son of the late Oscar winner Anthony Quinn, has died.
The 48-year-old Quinn collapsed Friday (Aug. 5) near his home in Malibu and was pronounced dead a short time later. A cause of death hasn’t been determined, but his agent tells the Los Angeles Times that Quinn likely suffered a heart attack.
Quinn was most recently seen on screen in “Zen,” a British crime drama that aired as part of PBS’ “Masterpiece Mystery” series this summer. His film credits include a role in “Platoon” and voice work on “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” and he racked up dozens of roles in TV movies and as a guest star on series.
Some of Quinn’s more notable TV roles include a two-year run on “The Young and the Restless,” a recurring part on the second season of “24,” a stint on “JAG” in 2002 and a part on the final season of “The Shield.” He also guested on “The Glades,” “NCIS” and “ER,” among other shows.
He is survived by his wife, Valentina Castellani-Quinn, and three children.
