DJ Qualls was born in Nashville, Tennessee on June 10, 1978. He was one of five children and remembers loving television when he was a kid. At fourteen years old he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. After two years of treatment his cancer went into remission. He studied English and Literature at the University of London, then moved back to Tennessee where he studied law while he learned to act. His career kicking off happened when a woman approached him at a community theater. She was the casting director for 'Road Trip' and got him started immediately. That job got him more into acting and fashion modeling. Today you can find him doing guest spots on Supernatural, or playing Billy
on FXX's 'Legit'
