The Vampire Diaries star Steven R. McQueen revs a lot of girls engines as he rides a motorcycle on the beach for a Vanity Fair photo shoot.
The 22 year-old who plays Jeremy Gilbert on the hit show says Jere is “as messed up as possible in the head,” and that was the appeal for him as an actor.
McQueen didn’t start out following in the family business (both his grandfather, Hollywood legend Steve McQueen and his father Chad McQueen are actors.) He says he had a bit of a shiftless time when living with his mom and stepdad. He wasn’t sure what he wanted:
“When we were living in Detroit, I had a real lack of direction,” says McQueen. “I started watching movies all day long.”
“I watched my grandfather’s projects with admiration and looked up to him, but at the end of the day you have to be true to what’s inside.”
Glad he found something he’s happy with.
