Famewatchers, meet our new imaginary boyfriend! His name is Steven Strait. He is 29 years old. He is an actor, a model, and a rock singer. That’s a triple threat right there. And he is starring in what’s being called the new Battlestar Galactica, the space opera/mystery series The Expanse on the Syfy channel. Is our Steven Strait gay or straight? Well, find out below.
He looks oh-so-shagadilic sexy in his white tank top shirt, no?
He sure looks like Taylor Lautner in the photo above.
In an interview with Hollywood Outbreak, Steven talks about his role as Holden in The Expanse:
He goes from being a guy, when you meet him, he’s the second officer in an ice hauler, which is kind of a modern day oil tanker. (He’s) living a life of anonymity, kind of running from any real responsibility (and) not wanting to answer to anyone. Through this very simple act of answering this distress call, he sets off a series of events, these dominoes that continue to fall and he inadvertently becomes the face of socio-political tension in the solar system – this revolutionary that he never asked to be.
If you are not a sci-fi fan, you might want to still check out The Expanse for its s*x scenes. Steven tells us more in an interview with the Post Gazette:
“In the s*x scene we’re on wires,” Strait explained during a lunch at the TV critics summer press tour. “When I first read the script, it was the effect I was most concerned about. How the hell is this going to look anywhere near realistic? And if we’re gonna be on wires…. it boggled my mind. I thought, it’s not gonna look right, but they pulled it off.”
Strait, who injured his ribs not long before filming the scene, said he was in a low harness and his co-star was in another harness.
“We were both being pulled up and down, it was hilarious,” he said. “We had a choreographer on set whenever we were doing zero gravity stuff to make sure we were doing it the right way. He was in the room and he’s Italian and he’s like, ‘Throw your head back,’ and we’re like, OK, just let us do it. It was incredibly uncomfortable. It looks super-enjoyable but it was not too great for me.”
Actors often say how awkward s*x scenes are but Strait said that was the case this time.
“Frankly, there were so many logistical challenges that the awkwardness almost fell away,” he said. “It wasn’t like a normal s*x scene that you’re doing with someone you might not know very well. We were really more concerned about making it look correct and were thinking about that the whole time.”
Hah! Who wouldn’t want to watch that?
Steven Strait Gay or Straight? He is straight. And he was once married to actress Lynn Collins but the two divorced in 2014. Here’s a pic of the exes:
Does he have a girlfriend at the moment? There’s no report that he does so it looks like he is enjoying his singleness.
These still photos from Magic City are kinda gayish though, no? We won’t be surprised if images like this will keep the “Is Steven Strait Gay” question alive.
What’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan doing to our Steven?
Steven Strait Underwear: Boxers or Briefs? Apparently, he wears both.
Let’s end this post with this fabulous photo of Steven Strait in his Speedo. Image is from the 2006 movie, The Covenant, where Steven co-stars with Toby Hemingway, Chase Crawford, and Taylor Kitsch.
