Was teaching sociology at a community college when she heard that director Henry King was looking for a dialect coach for Jennifer Jones, who played a Eurasian in the 1955 film Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955). The director instead hired Quo to play a small role in the film as Jones' aunt. She earned a bachelor's degree in social welfare from the University of California at Berkeley, and earned a master's degree in sociology at the University of Chicago. She taught in China after World War II, and with her husband and month-old son, escaped on a U.S. destroyer just as the communists took over. Judged the 1982 & 1994 Miss Universe Pageants.
