Aileen Quinn is the daughter of Andrew Quinn and Helenann Quinn. She grew up in her hometown, and later moved to Summit, New Jersey, where she attended Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, after which she worked briefly as a translator.
While she was a child, her mother worked as an actress and singer, so Aileen was introduced to show business very early and showed an interest in acting. Thus, she went to participate at an audition for the role of Annie in a local theater production of “Annie Get Your Gun”, winning a part in it, after which she appeared in several other productions. Her met worth was established.
In no time she was spotted by a talent agent, and her professional acting career soon began, making her debut appearance in a small role in “Paternity” (1981), directed by David Steinberg. In the same year, Aileen starred in the Broadway production of “Annie”, which gained enormous success, and in the following year was adapted into the film, which was directed by John Huston. Thanks to the role she was two times nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and won the Youth in Film Award for Best Actress, which increased her popularity immensely, as well as her net worth.
As Aileen was still under contract with Columbia Records to appear in several sequels of “Annie”, she didn’t appear in other TV and film titles on the screen, but continued to perform as a stage actress in such productions as “A Day In Hollywood/A Night In The Ukraine”, “Bye, Bye Birdie”, “The Wizard Of Oz”, etc. Beside that, she worked as a voice actress, providing her voice to the animated cartoon “The Wizard Of Oz” (1982), and the short video “The Charmkins” (1983), which added a considerable amount to her net worth.
Subsequently, Aileen won the role of Princess Zora in the 1988 film “The Frog Prince”, and in the new millennium she starred in “30” (2007), “Multiple Sarcasms” (2010), and most recently in the TV series “The Comeback Kids” (2014), increasing further her net worth.
Additional to her role of Annie, she released the solo album “Bobby’s Girl” in 1982 via Columbia Records. Currently, Aileen performs with The Leapin’ Lizards, a rock band.
To speak further about her, Aileen works as a teacher of acting at Monmouth University, from which she earned an honorary degree in 2009. She is also a dance teacher and teacher of Spanish at Hudson Catholic Regional High School, which also has influence on her net worth.
About her personal life there is no information in the media, as she refuses to discuss any (potential) relationship.

Studied at Drew University, New Jersey.
Said that she hopes to "end up like Shirley Temple Black and work in politics."
After graduating from college, Aileen briefly worked as a translator.
I had been under contract for so long to make other 'Annie' movies that never happened. So by the time I was 16 or 17, and my contract was officially up and I could do other things, then it was kind of past the point. It was kind of like, 'Who are you again?' So I decided to get a really good education, especially with my mom being teacher. I'm really glad I did.
