Gia Scala

While still attending STELLA ADLER's school in New York, McQueen dated GIA SCALA from 1952 to 1954.

 

"That she liked her acting teacher and the students in her class; especially a certain fellow who she thought was interesting; interesting because of how he delivers a scene in class. When Gia asked him how he makes it real, he told her that he mentally takes the scene apart, and then reconstructs the phasing. He does it to own what he says and how it was said." (p.129)

 

"In acting classes he was well liked, and that Stella Adler did not accept everyone who applied to her classes, she was very particular." (p.130)

 

"And on the weekends we go to a place in Long Island...where he races motorcycles. At first he did it for fun, but when the owners of the Speedway noticed how daring he was, now they pay him one hundred dollars a week to race!" (p.131)

 

"Gia thought he was cool, it was because he was exciting."(p.133)

 

"He seemed a bit on the wild side because he drove a motorcycle with Gia riding on the back...And Gia had mentioned in her letters that her Cool man had talked about marriage." (p.134)
 

In late 1955 at the age of 25, McQueen left New York and headed for California, where he moved into a house on Vestal Avenue in the Echo Park area, seeking acting jobs in Hollywood.

 

On November 2nd, 1956 he married actress Neile Adams, with whom he had a daughter,

Terry Leslie (June 5th, 1959 - March 19th, 1998 and a son Chad (born December 28th, 1960)

 

He appeared as a musical judge in an episode of ABC's Jukebox Jury, 24th April 1959: JukeBox Jury was a popular music critique show in which a panel of judges listened to the latest Pop releases and then judgement on the quality of the song. Steve McQueen appeared as a guest panelist along with Eartha Kitt, and they judges songs by Kay Starr and Jimmy Boyd.
