Who is Quinn Culkin?
Quinn Kay Culkin was born in New York City, USA, on 8 November 1984 – her zodiac sign is Scorpio, and she holds American nationality. She’s an actress, who’s probably known best for being the younger sister of Macaulay Culkin, a popular American actor and musician.
Early life, siblings and education
Quinn was raised in New York City alongside her seven siblings, by their mother Patricia Brentrup who was a telephone operator, and their father Christopher Cornelius ‘Kit’ Culkin who’s a former actor and a sacristan. Quinn’s brother Kieran Kyle Culkin is also a famous actor, as well as their brother Rory Hugh Culkin; their sister Jennifer died from a drug overdose on 10 May 2000, aged 30, while their sister Dakota died in a car accident on 10 December 2008, aged 29.
Quinn became interested in acting at a quite an early age, mostly because she was motivated by her father, who was still involved in the film industry while she was growing up. She attended a local high school, and was into numerous activities during her four years there, as a member of her school’s drama club – appearing in numerous plays performed there – while she was also highly sporting, playing volleyball and soccer.
She matriculated in 2002, and because she hasn’t spoken of her further education, most people believe that Quinn hasn’t attended college.
Career as an actress
Quinn had actually launched her acting career aged six, when she made an uncredited appearance in the 1990 hit family comedy movie “Home Alone”, directed by Chris Columbus, and which starred her brother Macaulay, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
It follows a four-year-old boy who has been forgotten and left at home by his parents on Christmas, while he now has to protect his house from two burglars; the movie won 11 of the 19 awards for which it was nominated, including two Oscar nominations.
In 1991, Quinn voiced a lead character Katie McClary, in the animated fantasy comedy series “Wish Kid”, which also starred Macaulay and Paul De La Rosa. It follows the boy Nick McClary, who has a magic baseball glove which grants him his every wish; it wasn’t very popular, and was cancelled after having aired 13 episodes.
Quinn has only one other acting credits: in 1993, she played Connie in the critically acclaimed thriller movie “The Good Son”. It was directed by Joseph Ruben, starred Macaulay, Elijah Wood and Wendy Crewson, and follows a young boy who has befriended his cousin, but has realized that he has started to show signs of psychopathic and violent behavior.

The movie won one of the three awards for which it was nominated.
Quinn has since been staying away from the media’s attention, and nothing about her further career is known.
Love life and relationships
Quinn is highly secretive when it comes to sharing the details of her love life with her fans, and hasn’t mentioned any men or women whom she has perhaps been with.
This is why some of her fans believe that she’s lesbian, claiming that Quinn hasn’t been seen spending time with men in public, but has apparently often been seen spending time with her female friends. A fan has also claimed to have seen her kissing her girlfriend at a café in Los Angeles, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Quinn commented on these rumors.
There are also those who believe that she’s today a married woman, and that she simply prefers to keep her husband away from the media’s attention, but this remains unconfirmed, as well.
As of December 2021, Quinn seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Quinn likes to spend her spare time reading books – her favorite authors are William Shakespeare and Virginia Woolf, while a couple of her favorite books include “Romeo and Juliette”, “To the Lighthouse,” and “Mrs Dalloway”.
She’s into travelling, and has apparently been to various US states, for both work and pleasure, while Quinn has also visited a couple of European countries, including Spain and France; her dream travel destination is Rome in Italy.
She has her own favorite actors and actresses, some of whom are Johnny Depp, Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson, while a couple of her favorite films include the franchise “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Dear John” and the franchise “Harry Potter”.
Quinn’s physically quite active, and has a couple of training sessions at the gym every week; she occasionally plays sports with her friends, such as badminton and table tennis.
