Why She’s Just ‘Q’:
Maggie Quigley explains how her name got shortened to just Maggie Q: “What happened was when I was living and working in Hong Kong, one of the biggest newspapers there when they first started writing about me, around seven/eight years ago, they couldn’t pronounce last name. I think to them it was just like, ‘Oh, uh.’ And so they printed Q, Maggie Q. And because it was a big paper, everyone followed them.”
