Of Ecuadorian, Austrian, and Norwegian descent, Michael Steger first caught the acting bug in high school, playing parts around Los Angeles in stage productions of A View from the Bridge, Death of a Salesman, Othello, and Tartuffe. From there, Michael earned a role in an independent Bollywood film, 3 Girls and the Golden Cocoon, and a guest spot on NCIS. He caught his big break in 2006 when Tim Burton cast him in the music video for The Killers’ hit single “Bones.” This led to a multi-episode arc on The Winner and guest spots on Hannah Montana, Cory in the House, Criminal Minds, Covert Affairs, and True Blood. He joined the cast of 90210 in 2008.

As high school journalist Navid Shirazi on 90210, Michal has caught the eye of many female fans. But sorry, ladies — this guy has long been off the market! In 2008, Michael married his childhood sweetheart, actress Brandee Tucker, in a 200-person ceremony. The couple has a long history together, having attended the same high school and college.
