A commune near Bentonville, Virginia, was the setting for David Arquette’s birth on September 8th, 1971. Both of his parents were in the entertainment industry; Brenda, his mother, was an actress, poet, and acting teacher, while Lewis, his father, was an actor. The acting was a family business for David and his siblings Patricia, Rosanna, Alexis, and Richmond; regrettably, Alexis passed away in 2016 from a heart attack brought on by a bacterial infection after having lived with HIV for nearly three decades.
David Arquette has stated that the Arquette children were raised in a home with an alcoholic father and an abusive mother “Despite the fact that she was one of the most loving, angelic, and sweet persons, my mother was abusive to my siblings and myself. Not only did we have a difficult upbringing, but we also experienced a childhood that was full with love.”
Following their departure from the commune, the family initially settled in Chicago before ultimately relocating to Los Angeles. Arquette began stealing when he was a child, and he had his first taste of alcohol when he was 12 years old. David took part in plays put on at the community library while he was a child, and he also performed in a few plays while he was in high school. Both Fairfax High School and the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies were among Arquette’s educational stops.
Arquette made his debut on television in 1990, when he had a guest appearance on 10 episodes of “The Outsiders” on Fox and began a stint on “Parenthood” on NBC that lasted for 12 episodes. After making an appearance in the film “Where the Day Takes You” in 1991, he went on to have roles in the films “Cruel Doubt” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” in 1992, as well as “An Ambush of Ghosts,” “Grey Knight,” and “At Home with the Webbers” in 1993.
