Glenn Martin Christopher Francis Quinn was born on May 28, 1970 in Dublin, Ireland. He was raised in Cabinteely (Co Dublin) and attended Clonkeen College. In 1988 he moved to the United States of America with his mother and two sisters.

In 1991, Quinn had his first role in a movie, Shout, next to John Travolta in which he shared an on-screen kiss with Gwyneth Paltrow. Later, one of Quinn's most noticable roles was that of Mark Healy, Becky Connor's husband in the TV sitcom Roseanne, also starring Roseanne and John Goodman among others. While still working on that show, Quinn also took on the role as youngest son Cedric on the UK TV series Covington Cross.
