Biography by Jason Buchanan

West Village born and bred, male model Steven Strait worked with some of the best photographers in the business before making his small screen debut in an episode of the popular television drama Third Watch.

Strait was educated at Public School Number Three before attending a Catholic High School, and though he would grow up a little faster than many thanks to his urban surroundings, the highly active youngster still found time to cut loose with a bit of basketball and boxing. It was during a workout session at a local gym that Strait was scouted by Boss Models agent John Babin, and though the classically handsome teen had retained a manager since making his stage debut in a Village Community School musical, it was finally time to move on to bigger and better things. Subsequently sent by Babin to A&F Casting directly after signing with Boss, Strait refined his acting abilities at the esteemed Stella Adler School for Acting and soon set his sights on the silver screen.

His feature career launched with a supporting role in the 2005 family-oriented comedy Sky High, Strait would subsequently appear in the entertainment industry comedy drama Undiscovered before testing his skills with a substantial role as one of four teens bestowed with supernatural abilities in director Renny Harlin's The Covenant in 2006.
