Steve (July 15, 2010 – August 12, 2013) was a bodyguard and driver for Frank Underwood. He is portrayed by Chance Kelly.
Steve was the driver and bodyguard of Frank Underwood. When the dog of the Underwoods' neighbors was hit by a car and Frank put it to death, Steve initiated the successful investigation for the driver.
He was on medical leave for a suspected gallbladder infection and was replaced temporarily by Edward Meechum. However, he was found to have stage four pancreatic cancer and not long to live. Claire visits him twice in hospital, and he confesss that he has 'hated' Frank for the eight years he has been working for the Underwoods, and loves Claire. Claire responds with a mix of disdain that Steve viewed her as a kept trophy wife, and distaste that he was impotent enough not to take what he wanted. On Steve's deathbed she reveals how Frank proposed, promising that she would never be bored, which paints him in sharp contrast to her many other suitors. She gives Steve a partial hand job in order to reveal her true nature as as much a cynical, capable heavyweight as her husband, and destroy the false image of her Steve has held on a pedestal.
