taylor kinney chicago fire Taylor Kinney: 'Vampire Diaries' fans like me more than 'Chicago Fire' fansTaylor Kinney certainly turns up the heat every week as lieutenant firefighter Kelly Severide on “Chicago Fire,” but the actor has revealed he is recognized most often for a character in his past. 

In an interview with Glamour’s Megan Angelo, Kinney dishes on his “Vampire Diaries” supporters loyalty, saying, “People still fan out on Mason Lockwood. That show did a lot for me.”

No kidding! In addition to his “Chicago Fire” duties, the smoldering actor appears in the female dominated comedy film “The Other Woman” this year and somehow still finds time for date nights with Lady Gaga.

When asked about his superstar girlfriend of three years, Kinney says, “I think we just complement each other. I’m proud of her, and I’d like to believe she’s proud of me. We’re kindred spirits.” Among activities the two enjoy together are hiking, which Gaga attempts to do in heels, and painting. 

The two sound like a match made in heaven: A former werewolf turned fire fighter and a mother monster.
