Steven Chadwick McQueen (professionally known as Steven R. McQueen: born July 13, 1988) is an American actor and model, known for his role as Jeremy Gilbert in The CW fantasy drama The Vampire Diaries from 2009 until 2017. He starred as Jimmy Borelli in the NBC drama Chicago Fire from 2015 until 2016.
McQueen was born in Los Angeles, California, to Stacey Toten (now Stacia Robitaille) and actor and producer Chad McQueen. His paternal grandparents are late actor Steve McQueen and Filipina actress Neile Adams. Neile Adams' niece is Filipino-Spanish socialite Isabel Preysler, mother of Enrique Iglesias, Julio Iglesias, Jr. and Chabeli Iglesias, making McQueen and Enrique second cousins. His stepfather, Luc Robitaille, is a retired NHL hall of famer. McQueen is the oldest of four children with a half-brother, Chase (b. 1995) and a half-sister, Madison (b. 1997) from his father's remarriage, and a half-brother, Jessarae Robitaille, from his mother's remarriage. McQueen's stage name is "Steven R. McQueen", the "R" referring to his stepfather's surname Robitaille.
In 2005, McQueen made his television debut appearing in an episode of the short-lived CBS science fiction drama Threshold. He guest-starred on a number of television series including Without a Trace, CSI: Miami and Numb3rs. One of his most notable roles to date was a recurring role as Kyle Hunter for seven episodes of the fourth and final season of The WB drama Everwood from 2005 to 2006. In January 2008, he made his film debut in the Disney Channel Original Movie Minutemen where he played the villainous role of Derek Beauguard.
In 2009, McQueen was cast as Jeremy Gilbert in the CW's television adaptation of L. J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries novels and starred for the first six seasons until 2015. Gilbert was written to have left Mystic Falls for art school when it was announced that the sixth season would be McQueen's last. In 2015, McQueen joined the cast of the NBC drama Chicago Fire in the fourth season as Jimmy Borelli, a new candidate assigned to Firehouse 51. He was credited in the recurring cast in the first six episodes and was added to the main cast in the seventh episode. In October 2016, McQueen's character was written out of the show during the fifth season.
