Quinton John Walker was born in Texas and when he was three-years old, his parents divorced, splitting the family into two separate households. In 2010 Quinton participated in his first theater production, Christmas at the O.K. This marked the beginning of his lifelong love of theater. He attended Canyon High School in New Braunfels, Texas, and during his Junior and Senior years he took dual credit courses through St. Edwards University. In 2015, Quinton came out to both of his parents as a gay man, something they both were very understanding and respectful of. He spent almost all of his time in school when he wasn’t working on academics, focusing on the school’s theater group, auditioning for and acting in a wide variety of shows before applying and being admitted to the Columbia College Chicago BFA Acting program. He moved to Chicago Illinois not long after graduating from high school, eager to start the rest of his life. The end of his freshman year at Columbia was interrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, when he moved back to Texas and completed his classes online for the remaining six weeks of the semester.
