Quinn Culkin is the sister of Macaulay Culkin and Rory Culkin, two famous American actors. Quinn and her brothers grew up alongside four other siblings in New York City. They were raised by parents who had connections to showbiz, and this inspired them to explore acting.
Macaulay and Rory went on to become popular actors. Quinn, on her own part, followed in her brothers’ footsteps and scored minor roles in some movies in the 90s. The 39 year-old former American child actress has since quit acting and now lives her life out of the spotlight.
Quinn Culkin is the Fifth Child of Kit Culkin and Patricia Brentrup
Quinn Culkin was born on the 8th day of November 1984 in New York City. Her father’s name is Kit Culkin. Kit Culkin is a native of New York and is a stage actor. He featured in a handful of theatrical productions before eventually managing his son’s careers.
Quinn’s mother, on the other hand, is Patricia Brentrup. Patricia is a native of North Dakota and was born on the 21st of November, 1954. She once worked as a road traffic comptroller in Wyoming. She also spent years working the night shift for a telephone answering service at a theatrical casting agency.
Quinn Culkin’s parents met each other in Wyoming in 1974 and started dating shortly after. They then moved out to New York City, where they made their home for several years. The couple never married but stayed together for 21 years, i.e. from 1974 to 1995. They welcomed a total of seven children during this period, namely Shane (b. 1976), Dakota (1979–2008), Macaulay (b. 1980), Kieran (b. 1982), Quinn (b. 1984), Christian (b. 1987), and Rory (b. 1989).
She Has Six Siblings Including Brothers Rory, Kieran, and Macaulay Who are all Award-Winning Actors
Quinn Culkin has six siblings. They are three elder brothers named Shane, Macaulay, and Kieran. There is also an elder sister named Dakota, who passed away as a result of a road accident in 2008. Quinn also has two younger brothers named Christian and Rory.
Quinn and her siblings grew up in the spotlight, and as such, many of them avoid it to date. Those that remain in the public consciousness are her brothers that have pursued acting careers. Amongst them is her elder brother Macaulay.
Macaulay Culkin began his acting career at the age of four in 1984. He later landed the most iconic role of his career when he was cast in the lead role in the 1990 film Home Alone. This made him one of Hollywood’s highest-paid and greatest child actors. Macaulay later endured some troubled times, but he has now bounced back.
Another famous brother that Quinn Culkin has is Kieran Culkin. Kieran was born in 1982 and is two years older than Quinn. He equally started his career as a child actor but has successfully morphed into an adult actor. He has featured in several movies and TV series over the years. One of them is the hit HBO series, Succession, which fetched him the Critics’ Choice TV Award in 2022.
Rory Culkin is also another famous brother of Quinn’s. Rory was born in 1989, meaning that he is five years younger than Quinn. He has appeared in several movies and TV series over the years, including Gabriel, The Night Listener, Mean Creek, Castle Rock, Waco, and You Can Count on Me.
Quinn Culkin Grew Up in New York and attended a Catholic High School
Quinn Culkin and her siblings grew up in New York City. The family endured tough times in the early years as their parents struggled to make ends meet. They lived in a railroad apartment which was basically a long studio. Their dad also worked for a roman catholic church so that they could attend school freely. The family’s fortunes later changed when Macaulay landed a lucrative role in Home Alone in 1990.
They were able to relocate to a brownstone located on the Upper East Side. They also lived quite comfortably. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for the family though. Quinn’s father had some negative attributes, and this inevitably affected the whole family. By 1995, when Quinn was 11 years old, her parents split for good and embarked on a court dispute over custody. All this made for a less-than-ideal environment for Quinn as she grew up.
She appeared in Some Movies as a Child But Has Since Stopped Acting
Inspired by her elder brothers, Macaulay and Kieran, Quinn Culkin also attended several auditions as a child. She was able to land minor roles in a handful of movies before she eventually paused her acting career. Quinn Culkin has been in two movies namely Home Alone (1990) and The Good Son (1993).
In Home Alone, Quinn was credited as the little girl at the airport. She was six years at the time and this marked her acting debut. Quinn Culkin’s second movie appearance was in the 1993 thriller, The Good Son. In it, she plays the role of Connie, the elder sister of Henry, a boy who has violent and evil tendencies. Her real-life elder brother, Macaulay, played Henry.
Quinn Culkin also voiced the role of Katie McClary in the TV series Wish Kid (1991). This is one of her last known works, meaning that she has never been able to achieve the kind of fame that her brothers, Macaulay, Kieran, and Rory, achieved.
Quinn Culkin Now Goes by the Name, Quinn Jones, and Lives Her Life Out of the Spotlight
Since appearing in The Good Son in 1993, Quinn Culkin has not appeared in any movie again. She has since lived her life out of the spotlight. She also maintains a limited social media presence, with her Facebook account set to private. This makes it difficult to know what she does for a living.
It is, however, known that she now goes by the name Quinn Jones, meaning that she has likely gotten married. With regards to her present location, there is a high possibility that Quinn Culkin still lives in New York City to date.
