Is Steve Lund Married? Confusion Surrounding His Wife’s Name
On-Camera, Canadian actor Steve Lund has portrayed a host of different characters -- be it a sexy werewolf in Bitten, a hopeless straight lover in Reign, or a charismatic bisexual in Schitt's Creek. Fans have long enjoyed seeing the chiseled, handsome hunk in both his sizzling onscreen romance with beautiful witch Paige from Bitten to wooing Dan Levy in the popular sitcom Schitt's Creek. But save for his on-screen personas where he seamlessly jumps back-and-forth from being straight to bisexual, Lund's real-life romantic leanings are a bit of a mystery.
While the actor has remained tight-lipped about sexual preferences, fans have often speculated him to be gay or falsely identified him as a married man.
Is Steve Lund Married? Actor Was Rumored With Kalleen Kirk
In his over decade long career in the glamorous world of showbiz, Steve hasn't been spotted or linked with any female costars or love interests. The closest he came to was when rumors circulated that the Bitten star had married a woman named Kalleen Kirk. Even websites like superstarbio.com recognize Kalleen as Lund's wife, which seems to be based on mistaken identity. Kalleen Kirk and Steve Lund are not a couple.
It turns out that the Canadian actor was confused with 67-year-old Young Men General President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints of the same name Steve J. Lund. According to the churchofjesuschrist.org, Steve J. is married to Kalleen with four children and nine grandchildren.
The marriage rumor was certainly a stretch since the 31-year-old actor was linked to a grandmother of nine.
Although the beloved actor seems to be single at the moment, he has talked about going on dates and having girlfriends in an interview with AfterBuzzTV.
There Have Been Rumors of Steve Being Gay
The rumor about Steve Lund being gay circulated when he posted a photo of him hugging a man with a caption that read 'I do.' This left many speculating about his sexual preference. More photos that gave rise to similar questions were posted in his social media account in September 2017, which further helped fuel the rumor's spread. Steve has also rarely been seen with the opposite sex in public appearances.
While Steve's posts have been bold, the intent behind them seems to be lighthearted and nothing but jestful.
The first photo of him hugging a man was nothing more than a fun post by Lund. Jeff Lohnes, the man with whom Steve was linked in the rumor, is married and a father to a child. Furthermore, the rumor of Steve being gay and not seen with any female counterparts was also put to rest when his old interview where he talks about his ex-girlfriends and ideal dates was discovered resurface on the Internet.
Steve Plays Bisexual Character in Schitt's Creek
Steve has portrayed characters that are not straight. One of them is playing a bisexual character named Jake in Schitt’s Creek. He has many kiss scenes with his co-actor Dan Levy in the TV series. Dan Levy plays David, a pansexual character in Schitt’s Creek and is also gay in real life.
In an interview with Halifax Magazine, Lund talked shared his enthusiasm for portraying a bisexual person, Jake, while also sharing his excitement in being able to kiss co-star Dan Levy.
I felt very honored and privileged to be the one in that position (as a bisexual love interest). But you know, it could have been a number of actors that would have taken the job alongside those Canadian titans. And to smooch Dan Levy! He's the cutest guy ever.
Bold roles such as this might have led some of his fans to speculate Steve’s sexual identity. However, his penchant for playing a diverse range of characters also shows that the actor has no reservations about taking the risky and versatile role as a character.
Despite speculations, Steve Lund has kept his love-life one of the best-kept secrets. Until the actor comes out and reveals his personal matters himself, it would be insensitive to make assumptions on his relationship status.
