Voice Actor Would Take Bullet For Wife; A Family Man Through & Through

Mary, voice director as well as the voice of Julia, is a part of the crew whom Steve considers a family & doesn't mind putting his life on the line for them. Speaking on his relationship with his team now - 20 years since it first aired - in April 2018, he claimed:-
"Yeahâ€Š—â€Šwe ARE that family. We see each other at cons once in a while, rarely get to work together, but I’d take a bullet for any one of them. Mary Elizabeth (voice director and voice of Julia) became my fiancée last year. We’ve been friends for 20 years. And my earlier comment had nothing to do with that!"
The Santa Monica native, age 58, then followed up referencing the 15-year-old gap that he & his fiance had to endure because of their respective marriages. At the time when the two first began working on Cowboy Bebop, Mary was with voice actor Daran Norris (1995 - 2012).
Likewise, Steve enjoyed a fruitful marriage with his then-wife, with whom he shares three kids. Jeremey, the oldest of the three, is keen on following his father footsteps, it seems.
Following their divorce from their respective spouses, they began seeing each other in romantic life, and as they say, the rest is history.
