William Rudy Quaid and Juanita Bonniedale have raised two sons both of whom have become impressive actors. Their eldest son, Randy Quaid, is an outstanding actor, the nominee of Academy BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards. The younger son, Dennis Quaid, follows the footsteps of his brother.

Dennis wanted to become an actor from his early childhood. He had a passion for dancing and studied it at Bellaire High School. Moreover, Quaid was taught drama by Coach Cecelia Pickett. Dennis Quaid even enrolled into the University of Houston but dropped out of it just before graduation, as he decided not to waste time and pursued the career of an actor as soon as possible. The start of his career was rather difficult, though. He did not get the roles he wanted, so it was difficult to prove himself as an excellent actor. Dennis debuted with an uncredited role in the feature film “Crazy Mama” (1975) directed by Jonathan Demme. Afterwards, he appeared in films playing some small roles until his breakthrough in the film “Breaking Away” (1979) directed by Peter Yates. The film was praised by critics as well as succeeding commercially. Dennis Quaid attracted the attention of filmmakers, consequently landing outstanding roles in films including “The Right Stuff” (1983) directed by Philip Kaufman, “Innerspace” (1987) directed by Joe Dante, “The Big Easy” (1987) and “Great Balls of Fire!” (1989) both directed by Jim McBride.

In spite of the fact that he experienced problems related to cocaine and alcohol, his career was going up. Quaid increased his net worth as well as receiving positive reviews for his roles in the following films: “Postcards from the Edge” (1990) directed by Mike Nichols, “Wilder Napalm” (1993) directed by Glenn Gordon Caron, “Wyatt Earp” (1994) directed by Kasdan, “Dragonheart” (1996) directed by Rob Cohen, “The Parent Trap” (1998) directed by Nancy Meyers and other films.

Furthermore, another upswing of Quaid’s career has been noticed since 2000. Quaid was nominated for the Saturn and Blockbuster Entertainment Awards for the role of Frank Sullivan in the film “Frequency” (2000). Dennis then won a Screen Actors Guild Award for a role in “Traffic” (2000). So far, the most nominations and awards winning role has been in the film “Far from Heaven” (2002) directed by Todd Haynes: Dennis Quaid won four prestigious awards for the role of Frank Whitaker. In addition to this, he created outstanding characters in the films “The Day After Tomorrow” (2004), “The Express” (2008), “Pandorum” (2009), “The Special Relationship” (2010) and “Beneath the Darkness” (2012). Currently, he is working on the upcoming film “Truth” (2015).
Quaid is the winner of many more awards including the Independent Spirit Award, Chicago Film Critics Association Award, Online Film Critics Society Award and New York Film Critics Circle Award.

Dennis Quaid has been married three times and is the father of three children. In 1978, he married actress P.J. Soles, but after five years of marriage they divorced. In 1991, he married actress Meg Ryan who is the mother of his first son. Unfortunately, after 10 years of marriage they divorced, too. In 2004, Dennis married real estate agent Kimberly Buffington who is the mother of their twins.

1 [2008 interview] I have no regrets. There's only one real regret that I have, and that's that David Lean, who is my favorite director of all time, gave me the role of Nostromo in "Nostromo". And I went over there to Nice and met with him and got to ask him every question there was, spent an afternoon with him. Unfortunately, he wound up dying of cancer before we could shoot the film. That's my only regret.
2 [observation, 2013] What's going on in television reminds me of what was going on in movies in the '70s, where the inmates had kind of taken over the asylum. And they're doing a lot of interesting things that I myself want to watch. The studios are just giving more of their tent-pole remakes of, you know, what's been successful before. I really don't find it all that interesting.
3 I love being a dad. Basically it's the most gratifying, rewarding relationship in life. But at the same time, it certainly is the most challenging.
4 [on The Express (2008)] At its core, it's about living your life with grace. If God bestows grace upon you, that you should live your life to its full effect. You know, Ernie Davis embodied that in his short life. He touched everybody around him.
5 Movies seem to be happening to me rather than me going out there and saying, "Well, I'm going to play this.".
6 I was a guy back in the '80s who was one movie away from a huge career, which at that time didn't happen. In the '90s, I worked a lot, but it was kind of, "get out there and dig and find things". Then I guess The Rookie (2002) and Far from Heaven (2002) were referred to as my comeback. I look around and a lot of the people I started in the business with, I have no clue where they are right now. So much of it has to do with luck and I have been extremely lucky, but a large part of it is also just hanging in there.
7 There are three things being a celebrity is good for: raising money for charity, dinner reservations and tee times.
8 [on his recovery from cocaine addiction] Well, a couple of times I had people come have a talk with me, but I was operating, for the most part, on two hours of sleep a night, and I realized, "I can't do this and last very long." So I cleaned up (in the early '90s) and then the jobs stopped coming. You clean up your life and think you're supposed to be rewarded for it, but things actually got worse. On the other hand, if I hadn't sobered up, I probably wouldn't be alive today.
9 [2004] Being a celebrity couple is not so easy - it's double the publicity, and it's hard to have a private life...I have to tell you that I am happier with my life now then ever: I have a great son and a great career. I'm not only here, but here stronger than I've ever been - I have absolutely no regrets about the ups and downs of my career.
10 I could never hold a job for more than three months, which works out well because that's how long a movie shoots.
11 What, like I want to look like Dick Clark? No. I think I'll look great with liver spots.
