Who’s the new boy?! The Act star Joey King was spotted packing on the PDA at LAX Airport on September 25 — and though her new boyfriend may not be a familiar face, we’re all quite aware of his work. In fact, Steven Piet was actually a producer on the hit Hulu series, which is undoubtedly how the new couple met. So cute!
The 20-year-old starlet was seen snuggling up to her new man as he arrived in Los Angeles from a flight and the duo even shared a sweet kiss. And, we gotta say, their height difference is pretty adorable. But who actually is Steven Piet? Allow us to fill you in with a few fast facts.
Well, according to his IMDB page, the filmmaker is just that — and he’s worked on almost every aspect of the process. Before his stint on The Act (where he also directed two episodes in addition to producing), he produced 10 episodes of the SYFY series Nightflyers. He also directed 7 episodes of the acclaimed horror anthology series Channel Zero in 2017.
Plus, Steven has writing, cinematography and camera department credits for several indie productions in the earlier years of his career. According to Seventeen, he and his creative partner, director Erik Crary, recently signed a deal with Universal Content Productions, so be on the lookout for more of his work soon.
According to his bio, Steven is also a proud Chicago native, where he was raised on the south side of the city. He also attended the Savannah College of Art and Design to major in Film. Clearly, things have been paying off for him career-wise!
As for Joey, well, the last time we saw her shacking up with someone, it was Euphoria breakout star Jacob Elordi. He and Joey met on the set of their Netflix movie, The Kissing Booth, in 2017. The then-couple got ~so much hype~ that fans and followers started creating social media accounts dedicated to them, dubbing their ‘ship name “Jacob and Joey.”
The dynamic duo — who were totally unafraid to show off their love on during their relationship — broke things off in spring 2019. Confirmation of their split came after his new girlfriend, Cari Flowers, posted a now-deleted PDA photo of herself and Jacob sharing a smooch. Believe it or not, both actors are currently filming The Kissing Booth 2, and they’ll have to share the screen together again as a ~couple~. But according to Joey’s IG, things have been really cordial and fun, if the behind-the-scenes vids from set are anything to go by.
Either way, it looks like Joey and her new man are enjoying the honeymoon phase! Scroll through the gallery to see photos of Joey and Steven packing on the PDA.
