Steven R. McQueen plays Jimmy Borrelli, the newest candidate at Firehouse 51, in NBC’s drama “Chicago Fire.”

McQueen previously starred as Jeremy Gilbert, a troubled teen on a dangerous and self-destructive path since the death of his parents, in the CW hit drama “The Vampire Diaries.”

McQueen has already built an impressive resume of television appearances. He had a recurring role as a musical prodigy on the drama “Everwood,” and a leading role in the Disney Channel movie “Minutemen.” His guest-starring roles have included “CSI: Miami,” “Without a Trace,” “Numbers” and “Threshold.”

McQueen has devoted a portion of his free time to two charitable efforts. He is involved with Echoes of Hope, a non-profit started by his mother Stacia Robitaille and stepfather Luc Robitaille, supporting at-risk and emancipated youth in Los Angeles. He has also spent time in Haiti with SmileTrain, an international children’s charity that provides free cleft lip and palate repair surgery to children in developing countries.

He is skilled in martial arts, ice hockey, kickboxing and horseback riding.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, McQueen is the grandson of actor Steve McQueen. He has relocated to Chicago for the filming of the show.

Steven R. McQueen Quotes
"Its pushes you to be better... People would expect me to have blond hair and blue eyes... It's fun to go in and give something different."
(On being the grandson of Steve McQueen)

"I think the beautiful thing about acting is you don't really know who you are. You're able to be whatever you want any day during the week. So I really couldn't see myself being anything else."
