Chase is the son of Steve's son Chad McQueen. Many people noticed that he looks like his famous grandfather, who passed away in 1980 after starring in "Bullit and The Great Escape." You can visit his Instagram account and see for yourself.

"Acting and trying to live up to my grandfather's legacy wouldn't be fair to me."

Chase was born and raised in Los Angeles, California to Chad and Jeanie Galbraith. He began his footballing career at the Hollywood All-Stars. He then left America to play at the academy of Croatian team Dinamo Zagreb.

"It has always been a dream of mine to come to England and play. There's no better place in the world," he once said in an interview.

"It's a great sport all round and footballers are the greatest athletes. The feeling when you get on the pitch is like nothing else."

He added that he wanted to "write his own path" rather than following in the strides of his well-known family.

"I wanted to write my own story - I wanted to make my own path," he said. "Acting and trying to live up to my grandfather's legacy wouldn't be fair to me. Nobody could ever live up to what he has done with his life."

Despite the fact that Chase's soccer career has taken numerous twists and turns with some hindrances along the way, he refuses to surrender. He has a straightforward motivation:

"My desire is to be great," he said. "This feels like a loss, to be honest with you. I'm proud of the boys and how hard we fought."

Chase's grandfather Steve shot to fame in the 1960s in such storied films as "The Great Escape" and "The Magnificent Seven."

Meanwhile, his father Chad was known for playing Dutch in "The Karate Kid" and "The Karate Kid Part II."
