It’s been a hot minute since Steven R. McQueen was on everyone’s radar. The actor rose to fame playing Jeremy Gilbert on the hit series The Vampire Diaries, but even after being on the show since season one, he left the show in season 6 and didn’t return until the finale.
“Jeremy has been through so much, and the main thing about it is that he failed to consistently protect the people he loves. He’s that boy trying to take back his power to be strong for those around him. I’m thinking right now that last episode, he was finally able to protect Bonnie in the only way he can,” the actor said of his character arc and decision to leave the show, per Just Jared Jr. “Once this is over, when there’s really nothing else he can do, I think the poor kid deserves a break,” McQueen concluded. “And the only way he knows is to start over. I think it does fits in terms of story.”
Since then he has been involved in a variety of projects, including the role of Jimmy Borelli on Chicago Fire and appearing in a few episodes of Chicago PD. At the climax of “TVD,” many fans are left wondering how he’s doing (and who he’s dating). And apparently the actor’s dating history includes the daughter of this former A-list couple.
Steven R. McQueen once got engaged
Steven R. McQueen once had a brief relationship with co-star Candice Accola, but in terms of serious connections, he was once engaged to model Allie Silva.
In January 2018, the two took to Instagram to share the news that they were about to get married. “She said yes,” McQueen wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post (via E! News). “My best friend, love of my life… YES yes yes a million times @steven_r_mcqueen,” Silver said. According to the outlet, the couple dated for about two years before deciding to get married.
Unfortunately, McQueen and Silva never got their happy ending as the two called it quits just months after they got engaged. “You know what? We actually canceled it,” he told Us Weekly at an event. “We have this. But yes, that’s the way it is. He didn’t go into detail as to why they broke up, but did say what he’s looking for in his next relationship. “You know, just love. That’s all.”
Steven R. McQueen dated Sean Penn and Robin Wright’s daughter Dylan
Celebrities date other celebrities all the time, so it came as no surprise that Steven R. McQueen, grandson of legend Steve McQueen, had an affair with Dylan Penn, daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright.
Per Us Weekly, the two were spotted getting cozy at a Golden Globes event in January 2014, months after Dylan was rumored to have been dating Robert Pattinson. “They met a while ago, they started dating pretty quickly, there’s a lot of attraction,” the source told the outlet at the time. “Dylan is a fun girl, whatever she had with Pattinson was very brief, if at all. Steven had met Sean the night before the event. [Sean] loves his daughter, really anything that makes her happy is fine with him.”
Their relationship didn’t last either. A month later, after they packed up on PDA, it was reported that they were going their separate ways. “I think it just fizzled out,” a source told E! news back then. The two have kept their love life at rock bottom ever since with no news on who they are dating now. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
