The 22-year-old actor laughed about the fact that they [his grandfather, Steve McQueen and him] share the same name. “Luckily, Iâ€™ve got a generation gap between me and him. But more than anything itâ€™s a little fuel in the fire,” Steven said.
Steven also dished on how he really got into acting: “When we [my mom and stepdad/hockey player Luc Robitaille] were living in Detroit, I had a real lack of direction. I started watching movies all day long. I watched my grandfatherâ€™s projects with admiration and looked up to him, but at the end of the day you have to be true to whatâ€™s inside.”
He adds on the appeal of his character Jeremy on The Vampire Diaries, “[He] was as messed up as possible in the head.”
