Everything You Wanted to Know About The Quarry Actor Zach Tinker

While his character in The Quarry, Jacob Custos, has been pretty divisive, we can all agree that actor Zach Tinker is an absolute sweetheart.

Zach was born into showbusiness, coming from a line of TV execs, producers, writers and directors, but he actually defied the family tradition when he decided to pursue acting in college. While he's recently been in the spotlight for his role of Jacob in The Quarry—with his character's quest to continue his summer fling kicking off the story's horror plot—he's also been part of big series including The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, 13 Reasons Why and American Horror Story: 1984. We got the chance to chat with Zach and learn all about the things that make him tick, and here's what we discovered about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
