Jack Henry Quaid (born April 24, 1992)[1] is an American actor. He is best known for portraying Marvel in the 2012 science fiction film The Hunger Games.

Early life[edit]

Quaid was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of actors Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid.[2]

Career[edit]

In 2012, Quaid made his film debut as Marvel in the film The Hunger Games.[3] In an interview, Quaid explained how he auditioned for the role: "We had torrential downpours, flooding, scorching heat and then a bear would wander onto the set. But it was an amazing bonding experience. We definitely all had a great story to tell about what we did on our summer vacation." He also said that he was warned of a backlash from fans because of his character's dastardly acts: "When I got cast, I was told that people would be spitting on me in the streets."

In 2013, Quaid once again reprised his character, Marvel for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in a cameo appearance. In the same year, Quaid asked fans to help him fund his new film, Roadies, by making donations on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo.[4] Quaid appeared in the main cast of the short-lived HBO television series Vinyl, which premiered in February 2016.[5]

In 2017, he starred as Jordan Welch in the horror comedy film Tragedy Girls, which was released in theaters on October 20, 2017.[6][7]

On March 6, 2018, it was announced by Deadline that Quaid was cast in the lead role of the Amazon drama series, The Boys. He will star in the role of Hughie.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Quaid resides in Los Angeles, California. He attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts for three years.[9]
