Margaret Denise Quigley is an American film and television actress. She is more popularly known by her stage name Maggie Q. Initially, she wanted to become a veterinary scientist but due to her family’s financial limitations, she could not come up with the required funding. She left her hometown of Honolulu to earn enough money so that she could pursue her dream. Her travel took her first to Tokyo, where she began her career as a model, and then to Taipei before she finally settled in Hong Kong. While she was in Hong Kong, she met superstar Jackie Chan who took an instant liking to Q. Realising her true potential, Chan provided her with intensive training on how to be an action star. In 1998, she made her screen debut in the television drama ‘House of the Dragon’. Two years later, she starred in her first feature film, ‘Model from Hell’. Q’s performance in her next project ‘Gen-Y Cops’ eventually led to her first appearance in a Hollywood film, Brett Ratner’s ‘Rush Hour 2’. Since then, she has been equally busy in both Chinese and American film industries. She currently stars as Hannah Wells in ‘Designated Survivors’.
