Steven R. McQueen
A scion of Hollywood royalty, it was inevitable that Steven R. McQueen would follow in his grandfather Steve McQueen's footsteps as an actor. As the grandson of a Hollywood legend, the young McQueen was careful to rely on his natural talent and hardworking ethic over using his family name to make inroads in the industry. He launched his acting career on the small screen with a memorable role as a closeted gay teen on the long-running family drama "Everwood" (The WB, 2002-06), and continued to take on roles of social outcasts, whether it was for a Disney Channel feature such as "Minutemen" (2008), about time-traveling high school students, or his breakthrough performance as an emotionally troubled, drug-addicted teen on "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ). His role on the latter hit series proved McQueen was more than ready to build up his own impressive résumé and establish a successful career that would have made his late grandfather proud.
