American actress and former fashion model Margaret Denise Quigley, famously known as Maggie Q, was born on May 22, 1979 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She is of mixed ancestry, particularly Irish, Polish, and Vietnamese. At 17, she started modeling in Tokyo, Japan. Later on, she decided to push her luck and move to Taipei to find a better career. Unfortunately, she hadn’t met luck, which made her decide to go to Hong Kong despite of insufficient funds. There in Hong Kong, she met the famous martial arts actor Jackie Chan who helped her raise her career by training her with action stunts that will help her portray action-packed roles. It was in the year 1998 when she had her breakthrough and was chosen to portray a significant role in the TV drama House of the Dragon. Currently she is seen as one of the casts of the American TV series Nikita.
Maggie is known for her skinny but fit and healthy figure. How she maintains it, according to her, is all about being a vegetarian. For several years, Maggie has practiced eating nothing but veggies and somehow it seems like she’s earning what she deserves. “I feel better, I have more energy on and off the set,” she says when asked about how her diet benefits her.
On the other hand, Maggie tones her body by depending on her stunt coordinator. She performs high-octane workouts such as Martial Arts, particularly Krav Maga and Capoeira. Whenever she’s not performing them, she resorts to boxing, yoga, and swimming.
