Biography's Source:

Born in the City of Brotherly Love to Andrea and John de Lancie, young John distinguished himself while in his pre-teen years by flunking the fifth grade after racking up the most detentions ever given a child his age. They thought he was "a little slow", only later to discover that he was simply lysdexic. At 14, de Lancie played the part of Henry the Fifth in the school play; to everyone's astonishment (including his own) he was good. This fact was not lost on his father (First Oboist for the Philadelphia Orchestra and Director of the Curtis Institute of Music) who, thinking "any port in a storm," suggested to his son that he become an actor. The die was cast.

John de Lancie played a major role as the omnipotent "Q" on Star Trek: The Next Generation. While only appearing nine times in ten years, the cult popularity of this character is so widespread that Mr. de Lancie's likeness has appeared in countless merchandising and promotional products. He has been the subject of hundreds of articles in newspapers and magazines and has won, time after time, the popular votes for "Best Villain," "Best Recurring," and "Best Loved" character in this vastly popular show. Independent television stations throughout North America, Australia and England have hosted "John de Lancie 'Q' Week" airing all his episodes together.

John de Lancie is married to actress-singer Marnie Mosiman, and they have two sons. His favorite pastime is sailing and dreaming about far-off islands.
