John Quade

Actor

Born - 1 April 1938, Kansas City, USA
Died - 9 September 2009

A piggy-eyed, unkempt-looking, flush-cheeked character actor with wild red hair, Quade was an aerospace engineer before opting for an acting career at 30. He almost always played dirty, sweaty, unpleasant characters, notably the aggressive, comically menacing biker leader he created in the Clint Eastwood films Every Which Way But Loose (1978) and Any Which Way You Can (1980). He was also in Bad Company (1972), The Sting (1973), The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), La Bamba (1986) and The Giant of Thunder Mountain (1991), his last. He went into independent production in 1993. Said his wife Gwen: 'He was one of the nicest men you'd wish to meet, but he looked mean and he looked nasty.'
