Steven Krueger is an American actor best known for his recurring role as Joshua "Josh" Rosza, a vampire who was formerly Klaus' spy before having his compulsion lifted by Davina, in the supernatural horror drama television series The Originals.
Krueger was born in the small mid-western town of Appleton, Wisconsin and spent his early childhood in Brookfield, a suburb of Milwaukee. After his parents' divorce at age 10 he moved with his mother and younger brother to Sarasota, Florida.
As he entered his freshman year of high school, his mother insisted that he try acting. He was reluctant, but after his first day in Acting I, he knew his mother was right. He absolutely loved it.
He began to immerse himself in extracurricular activities in the arts. Ultimately he graduated from high school, choosing to attend the University of Virginia with an eye on law school.
Halfway through his first year at UVA, Steven's mother fell ill and passed away a month later. The entire family, including his father, agreed that allowing his Aunt and Uncle to become surrogates for him and his brother was the best solution.
