Maeve Anne Quinlan (born November 16, 1964 in Chicago) is an American actress and former professional tennis player. She is best known for starring as Megan Conley for 11 years in The Bold and the Beautiful and for the critically acclaimed hit series South of Nowhere, which received two nominations in a row for Best Drama at the GLAAD Media Awards.
Quinlan entered the professional tennis circuit at age 16, appearing in several major tournaments and eventually reaching seed position #95 in world rankings, which earned her full scholarship to both USC and Northwestern universities, where she studied theater. After an injury, she quit tennis and pursued an acting career, starting with parts in commercials for Nike and Gatorade.
Prior to South of Nowhere she was a regular on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful, where from 1995–2005 she played Megan Conley. She returned for a three-week guest-starring role on the show in March 2006, while on hiatus from South of Nowhere. One of her more notable roles was that of "Rhonda" in the 2002 movie Ken Park, a controversial film in which her character is seen receiving oral sex from her daughter's boyfriend. She also starred in the unsuccessful comedy Totally Blonde in 2001, and in 2007, the popular web series Girltrash!
She starred in the 2009 movie Not Easily Broken with Morris Chestnut and Taraji P. Henson. She both co-created, co-produced and starred in 3 Way, a web series about roommates which featured lesbian characters, with Jill Bennett, Maile Flanagan and Cathy Shim.
She is close friends with Chris Evert.
