September 8, 1971
David Arquette's early childhood was not spent like most American children. David, along
with his parents and four other siblings lived several years in a commune. Not an unusual
arrangement for such an artistic family. David's mom taught acting classes and for a time ran
a children's theatre. His father, Lewis Arquette, joined the cast of The Waltons in the later part of the series. And his two sisters, Rosanna and Patricia, are also thespians.
Some time at the end of the 70's, David Arquette's family left the commune and moved to Los
Angeles in order for his father to be closer to where the work was.
David attended Fairfax high school, and on the prompting of his sisters, and with the prospect
of making some money, David decided to try his hand at acting, auditioning and winning a part in a school play. He was a bit disillusioned to discover he would not be paid, but the acting bug seemed to have bitten him good. He went on to gain work in "paying" parts in television series as The Outsiders and Parenthood.
In the years that followed, David continued to find steady work in the industry. He is best
known for the part of Dwight 'Dewey' Riley in the Scream movies, and for marrying the lovely Courteney Cox of Friends fame.
