Donald Joseph, best known as DJ Qualls, is an accomplished American actor, producer, and fashion model who has appeared on several TV shows including The Big Bang Theory, Castle, Scrubs, CSI, Breaking Bad, Supernatural, Lost, and many others.
DJ Qualls was born in a small town in Tennessee, the USA on June 10th, 1978 as the son of Debbie and Connie Qualls.
He grew up in the small town of Manchester and after studying at King’s College, University of London, he returned to Tennessee where he started playing in a local theatre.
During this time he was discovered by photographers David La Chappelle and Steve Klein, which led to modeling work for Prada and other advertising campaigns.
In addition to his professional successes, Qualls also appeared in other films – Road Trip (2000), Cherry Falls (2000), in which he starred with Jay Mohr, Brittany Murphy, and Gabriel Mann. His earlier films include the miniseries Mama Flora’s Family (1998), based on the book by Alex Haley, and Against The Wall.

DJ Qualls is a proud cancer survivor and an advocate for cancer research and education.
DJ Qualls Wife
He is one of those celebrities who has kept his private life low-key, and moments of his love life remain safely hidden with him.
In recent years there has been much speculation about his sexuality, with rumors circulating that he has been performing in gay clubs.
There have also been several occasions when it was said that he had a boyfriend.
DJ had reportedly claimed that his future girlfriend or wife had the same profession and background.
He is said to believe that marriage is a kind of obstacle that delays the success of his career, so he will not think about marriage until he has achieved his desired professional goals.
DJ Qualls Girlfriend
In 2006 DJ started going out with the actress Nikki Reed. In 2007 the two separated and things didn’t go so well anymore.
Since then Nikki Reed has continued her life. She is currently married to Ian Somerhalder, after separating from Paul McDonald in 2015, and the couple is expecting their first child.

And for DJ Qualls, the rumor about his being gay after his breakup with Nikki has even deepened as he hasn’t had a girlfriend since.
So DJ is officially still single. This is probably good news for all his female fans.
DJ Qualls Sister
Have you ever thought that the actress and comedian Lauren Lapkus is the sister of DJ Qualls? Well, you’re not alone, as many have thought.
The two were confused with siblings for a long time until a survey on the same ones was conducted and it turned out that they weren’t siblings, just doubles.
“People think I’m a DJ. I mean, they don’t think I’m him, but they write to me every day and tell me that we’re brother and sister or something. I mean, he’s great. I just like being me.”
DJ definitely has a sister in real life that he tweeted about on August 22, 2014. On that day he had tweeted a childhood picture on Twitter that he owes to his sister (he didn’t mention her name, though).
