Michael Steger

Thanks to a multicultural background that helped him land a variety of roles, actor Michael Steger graduated from guest appearances on television to become a star as the charming, but politically-charged high schooler Navid Shirazi on the teen-centric reimagining of "90210" (The CW, 2008-13). Prior to his success on the remake of the popular 1990s series, Steger started his career in commercials before making his small screen debut as a child on the short-lived action series "VR Troopers" (syndicated, 1994-96). Several years later, he guest starred as a sniper on the perennial hit "NCIS" (CBS, 2003- ) before finding himself on the tween set with an episode of "Hannah Montana" (Disney Channel, 2006-2011). From there, he finally earned a main role as Navid on "90210" while branching out with episodes "Covert Affairs" (USA Network, 2010-14) and "True Blood" (HBO, 2008-14), making Steger a true star on the rise.
