Some couples go to dinner to share their dreams for success and spend the evening talking about their busy workdays. For Jason Steffen and Kat Bingham, it is easy to stay on the same page. Not only do they live together, but they also share the same dream of being actors and shared the same day job at Queen’s Pizzeria in Mesa, AZ.
While shooting a video, Keith and I met the couple that was obviously head over heels for one another. The two couldn’t keep their hands off of each other and even asked if they could kiss on camera. This is still the strangest request I have ever heard of at a shoot—let’s just say they certainly were not camera shy. After we decided the kiss on camera wasn’t going to be a cohesive fit for our b-roll, Keith decided to let his journalistic side kick in and question the two lovebirds.
“Are you married,” asked Keith? “What do you do when you’re not working here?”
Turns out we met a young “Brangelina.” Let’s call Jason and Kat “Jaskat.” Jaskat explained that they live together and feel as committed to one another as a married couple. The hitch is that they agreed they would not get a marriage license until all people have the right to wed. Kat confided in Keith and me once Jason turned around. She flashed a smile and whispered that she’d take a ring from Jason any time.
The two can’t get enough of each other. Not only does Jaskat live and work together, but they also act in community theatre together. They moved to Los Angeles and plan to make it big.
I’m thinking we’ll be seeing big things from Jaskat and the two won’t let Hollywood get in the way of their romance. They seemed to make a great team in the pizzeria, as they will during the next step of their journey in LA.
At work Jason rolled out and tossed the dough and handed it off to Kat for the sauce and toppings. Jason is the cheese to Kat’s peperoni. Now that’s love.
