Biography and Career
She moved to California, where she was encouraged into modeling and acting by her friends. Linnea is considered one of the horror industry's most beloved "Scream Queens," and has appeared numerous times in Fangoria magazine. She also has a caring side that has led to doing work for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). She has done a lot of work to promote animal rights throughout her life. She is also one of the biggest female stars to ever cross the B-horror movie market.
The short, blond, petite-sized Linnea began getting work in B-movies, starting with small
parts in such films as Stone Cold Dead (1979) and Wheeler (1975). She really garnered attention in The Return of the Living Dead (1985), which has become a cult classic and helped make her the current "Queen of the Bs". Her reign was supreme in the late 1980s with such films as Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988), Night of the Demons (1988) and Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers (1988).
Linnea married special effects wizard Steve Johnson in 1990, but, unfortunately, the marriage lasted only a couple of years. In 2001, Linnea moved to Florida to be closer to her parents who settled there after her father retired from his career and because she wanted a change of scenery.
She currently resides in south Florida with her collection of pets (she is a devoted animal rights supporter). Along with films, she still appears at conventions around the world. She has written two books about her life in the B-movie industry, "Bio & Chainsaw," in 1992 and "I'm Screaming as Fast as I Can" in 1995. After 25 years and more than 70 films, Linnea Quigley is still "Queen of the Bs".
