American actor Jack Quaid is known primarily thanks to his parents Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan , and only then for his appearances on the movie screen. While his filmography is rather scarce, the largest project is the series “Boys” about superheroes. But a rapidly expanding fan base believes there will be far more significant accomplishments in Jack’s future.
Childhood and youth
Jack Henry Quaid was born on April 24, 1992, in Los Angeles, California. He is the child of Meg Ryan, known for the melodramas “Kate and Leo” (2001) and “In the Land of Women” (2007), and Dennis Quaid, a nominee for the prestigious Golden Globe and Emmy awards.
When Jack Quaid was 8 years old, his parents announced their separation. The divorce proceedings ended in July 2001. A hereditary actor took the family discord hard, he lacked a father – an ideological inspirer, an example to follow. After all, the son spent the rest of his dependent life with his mother.
Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan had only one child in common, but more children appeared in subsequent unions. These are twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, born as a surrogate mother from the actor, and Daisy Tru, adopted by the actress, a citizen of China.
Jack Quaid’s parents were at their peak in the 1990s, and his life was spent on the set. Therefore, the question of choosing a profession was not raised – it is clear that a hereditary actor was brought up in the family. Open sources do not allow us to find out if a celebrity has the appropriate education, or his still few roles are the result of innate talent.
Jack Quaid’s girlfriend is called Lizzie McGruder. Most likely, she is also an actress. The couple has been together since July 14, 2015. Such a detailed detail is known thanks to Lizzie’s Instagram: every year the girl celebrates a memorable date.
By the way, photos of the chosen one appear quite often in her feed. Each photo is accompanied by a love signature.
Jack does not seek to formalize his personal life, but it seems to fans that the wedding is just around the corner.
Quaid made his debut in the science fiction film The Hunger Games (2012) starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. He played Marvel – a tribute, that is, a participant in the competition, from District No. 1. The actor spoke about the shooting with special warmth:
“We [the crew and the Hunger Games caste] have experienced tropical downpours, flooding, scorching heat. Once a bear wandered into the site. But for me it’s an amazing experience. Definitely the best story ever on what I did during my summer vacation.
Marvel also appears in the second part of the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).
Quaid can also be seen in the horror film Kill For Like (2017), the comedy Lucky Logan (2018) and the adventure movie Rampage (2018). All roles are episodic. And only the romantic comedy “Plus One” (2019), in which Jack starred with Maya Erskine, brought the long-awaited main role.
So far, the most successful project in Jack Quaid’s biography is the Boys series, which premiered in 2019 on Amazon Prime Video. It is based on the DC comic book of the same name and tells, as you might expect, people with supernormal abilities.
Unlike Superman or Batman , the Boys’ characters revel in their own glory. In the human world, they are like rock stars: they get the best places in sports games, cars and girls. Superheroes are united in a group called “Seven”. And “Boys” are fighting against their waste and impunity. Hugh Campbell, Jack’s character, is one of the Boys.
Carl Urban , Erin Moriarty , Dominic Mackelliogott, Anthony Starr – young and promising actors – worked side by side with Quaid on the set . Based on news from Amazon Prime Video, they’ll be back on set in 2020 to create Boys Season 2.
