Steve Lund’s Early Life and Education Background

Since he was a young child, he had an interest in the show business industry; even while in elementary school, he participated in a Lion King Cartoon production, a show that was a hit with catchy songs and popular characters, with which he was apparently ecstatic – getting a chance to replicate his favorite cartoon gave him so much joy, and also increased his passion to follow acting as a career later in life.
When the time came for Steve Lund to join college, he had already made up his mind on what to study, so he joined the Vancouver Film School, where he got to learn all the basics. He was taught how to efficiently assume different acting styles, and one of his teachers even went ahead to teach him how to act in a Russian way – before 1933, actors normally played to a crowd while on stage, similar to giving a speech to a crowd of people. However, in 1933, all that changed when a play performed in Russia had actors turn their backs to the audience, and they acted and drank their coffee without acknowledging their audience. This style was used to introduce realism to acting. For the first time, the audience had the chance to become deeply immersed in the storyline. Steve took this lesson into his acting career.
Steve once played in his high school band – named The Steve Lund Experience – as the lead singer. Steve says that he would one day love to play the role of a rock star from the 70s.
