Francesco Quinn, 48, the actor son of movie legend Anthony Quinn whose own journeyman career began with a supporting role in the Oscar-winning film “Platoon,” died Friday in Malibu, his agent confirmed in a statement. The cause has not been determined, but Quinn was believed to have died of a heart attack.
[Updated at 2:10 p.m. Aug. 7: Sheriff’s deputies responded to a “person down” about 5 p.m. Friday in the 21000 block of Rambla Vista in Malibu.
Quinn was walking home from a store at the bottom of a hill below his home with his son when he collapsed, said Lt. James Royal of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station.
One of Quinn’s sons went for help and Quinn’s wife and a neighbor called 911 and tried unsuccessfully to revive him.
Paramedics arrived and took him to Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.]
Besides “Platoon,” Oliver Stone’s 1986 Vietnam War drama, Quinn appeared in more than a dozen other films including “Tonto Woman,” an Academy Award nominee in 2008 for best live-action short.
He had recurring roles in such television series as “JAG,” “24” and “The Shield,” and portrayed Tomas del Cerro on the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” from 1999 to 2001.
He also played the young Santiago in a TV movie version of Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea” that starred his father as the title character.
One of a reported 13 children of the Oscar-winning actor best known for his title role in “Zorba the Greek,” Francesco Quinn was born in Rome in 1963. His mother, Iolanda Addolori, was an Italian wardrobe assistant whom his father met on the set of the 1962 film “Barabbas” and later married.
Francesco Quinn’s survivors include his wife, Valentina Castellini-Quinn, and three children, according to his agent, Arlene Thornton.
His father died in 2001.
Francesco Daniele Quinn was born on March 22nd, 1963 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francesco_Quinn
March 22nd, 1963
3 + 22 +1+9+6+3 = 44 = his life lesson = what he was here to learn = Self-awareness. Introspection. Being in touch with himself.
Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life. Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the 4th, 5th and 6th letters of the name and the day of birth.
Francesco Daniele Quinn March 22nd, 1963
14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 3 (c is the 3rd letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 22 (born on the 22nd on the month) = 44
So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four he had the number 44 going on.
44 = Self-awareness. Introspection. Being in touch with himself.
[When his number (44 (3 + 22 +1+9+6+3 = 44 = his life lesson number)) came up, that’s when he got to live/experience what he was here to live/experience. So this was his time.]
