Jack Reynor is an Irish actor. His roles include the films What Richard Did, Delivery Man, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Glassland, A Royal Night Out, Macbeth (2015), Sing Street, Free Fire, The Secret Scripture, The Man with the Iron Heart, Detroit, Kin, On the Basis of Sex, Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, Midsommar, and Cherry, and the shows Strange Angel and The Peripheral.

He was born in Colorado, U.S., while his Irish mother, Tara (Reynor) O’Grady, was living there. He moved to Valleymount, a small village in County Wicklow, Ireland, when he was two, and was raised in Ireland. His mother is a human rights activist.

Reynor is the maiden name of Jack’s mother. The name of Jack’s father (and the fact of whether or not he is Irish) does not appear to be publicly known. The surname Reynor is often English, and may indicate that Jack’s mother has some English ancestry.

Jack’s maternal grandfather is named Damien/Damian R. Reynor (whose parents’ surnames were Reynor and Gough). Damien was born in Dublin, Ireland.

Jack’s maternal grandmother was named Veronica Ann “Pat” Mulhall.

    Does not look in the slightest English. Not with those eyes.

    Reynor is most likely just a variant of the name Raynor which is an Norman name so technically not English. There are many Norman names in Ireland.
