Steven R. McQueen is hot in a sweater while attending a press junket for NBC’s Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med held at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios on Monday (November 9) in Chicago, Ill.
The 27-year-old Chicago Fire actor recently opened up about his character Jimmy is completely different from his Vampire Diaries character Jeremy.
“[Jeremy] was strong in the way that he continued to stay sincere and wear his heart on his sleeve, even though he’d been through stuff repeatedly and the world put him in these situations that were out of his control,” Steven told THR. “Being a human being surrounded by a bunch of supernatural creatures, you’re going to feel weak at times, and you’re going to feel like these monsters have control over your life, and so, somehow, he found a way to stay sincere through that and not let the world callus him, which is great, whereas Jimmy is a little tougher. He’s a hard worker, and he’s the guy that takes control when he needs to, and I found that to be an appealing quality.”
Steven added about maybe returning to TVD, “We shot the pilot when I was 19. I grew up with those people. They’re my family. They left me alive, and if they invited me back to come say hi to everybody, I would be honored to.”

The 15-year-old Mockingjay star appears on the first ever dual cover with Forever in Your Mind. Here’s what they had to share with the mag:
Willow on Jennifer Lawrence trying to make her laugh in scenes: “Yeah, she does that all the time. I think Jen and Josh have decided that their sole purpose on set is to try getting other people to laugh when they are on camera doing their scenes. So when I am on camera in a serious scene, Jen would be behind the camera making just the weirdest faces at me in the entire world. It’s just what she does. She doesn’t want you to be good in the scene (Laughs)…she just wants you to fail.”
FIYM’s Emery on their favorite part of being in a band together: “It’s fun being in a band because one, it’s with your best friends. Two, you have this dream and your dream is doing something amazing and it’s even better doing it with the people you love.
FIYM’s Ricky on the best advice he’s ever gotten related to music: “For me, the best music advice that I’ve ever gotten is to stay true to who you are. It’s going to be very confusing if you’re always changing your image all the time.”
In fact, the 23-year-old One Direction singer mentioned Ed when he was asked which songs he wish he had written.
“Well, every Ed Sheeran song ever,” Louis told EW. “What is so great about his style of writing is it’s so simplistic, but so fantastic. He makes simple stuff sound so great. I think that’s why he’s so good at being relatable.”
As for his favorite? “U.N.I.”! Louis said, I love the lyrics behind it.”

“Yes. Yes. Yes,” Kat said when we asked her if she was surprised by the steamy scene. “I was alerted about it before I read it. Like, ‘By the way, did you know…?’ I was like ‘Really?’ It was fun. It was cool. I don’t know how they’re going to develop. It starts as a flash forward and we work backward, and you see how the relationship bloomed.”
Kat added, “It’s actually very interesting and I’m really happy with the way they wrote that. It goes in full throttle. Where did that come from? And then all of a sudden it starts to go backward.”
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays @ 8PM on The CW!
