Bio Of Jack Quaid  

Jack Henry Quaid was born on April 24, 1992, in Los Angeles, California, USA to actress Meg Ryan and actor Dennis Quaid. He was born under the birth sign Taurus.  His parents who married in 1991, later on, divorced in 2001. 

Jack was only five when his folks divorced and obviously it affected his childhood.

During an interview in 2016, he said:

“It’s one of those weird ages for your parents to get divorced. You’re old enough to know what’s going on, but young enough to be kind of naïve about it. It’s a whole deal.”

He continued:

“It’s hard to ignore when you’re at a grocery story and you’re checking out and you look at [magazines], and there’s a photo of them with a little paper rip graphic between them. It’s a hard deal.”

He, however, does not have any regret growing up like that. He further said:

“I acknowledge fully the way that I grew up was not normal. But at the same time, it was normal in the sense that despite what my parents do, they are still a mom and a dad. It’s not like they are their characters at the dinner table or anything like that.”

His grandfather, William R. (Buddy) Quaid was also an actor and he is the nephew of Academy award-winning actor Randy Quaid. Similarly, his younger half-brother Budd Quaid is also an actor.
