Meg Ryan is not going to take it anymore when people call her son Jack Quaid, an actor, a “nepo baby,” a term used to describe children of celebrities. Ryan shields her son from the term in a recent interview, calling it “dismissive.” “Jack is really talented. He’s more of a natural than I’ll ever be,” She stated in Glamour magazine. “That nepo stuff is so dismissive of his work ethic, his gifts, and how sensitive he is to the idea of his privilege,” she told Glamour magazine.” At present, Quaid plays Hugh “Hughie” Campbell in the Amazon Prime Video series The Boys. Ryan remembered Quaid’s skill from his time as a lead in a school drama.
“I remember seeing him in a middle school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Ryan remarks. “He was playing Bottom. I was newly divorced from his dad, and he was seated at the other side of the gym. I had my head in my hands and was like, ‘Oh, no. He’s good. He’s really good.’ I leaned forward, and I see Dennis, and he’s also leaning forward with his head in his hands. I just knew.” Quaid played Richard Feynman in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer previously this year. He recently acted with Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega in Scream V. Marvel appears in The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, among other movie credits. Quaid voiced characters in animated series such as Star Trek: Lower Decks and Harvey Girls Forever! He also acted in HBO’s Vinyl.
