These projects will show you why he has potential as a mainstream Hollywood actor, as they showcase his talent in playing a wide variety of characters convincingly and with depth. Scott, who started his acting career in theater, is steadily exploring new opportunities in film, commercials, and modeling in the U.S. and Europe.
In The Remote Office, he plays the role of Chris Johnson, an advertising executive who has to cope with a new corporate culture resulting from a company buyout. If you’re a fan of workplace comedies, you should definitely give this one a try.
This marks the first time he took on a regular television role. His first foray was in the BBC series Doctors, where he appeared in one episode.
Released almost concurrently, Blood Positive is the result of his collaboration with director Alejandro Montoya Marín, who wrote the award-winning 2018 indie film Monday. The film revolves around the story of two sisters who are bent on tracking down a person, who they believe is their estranged father.
If his name rings a bell, maybe you’ve seen Scott in the 2017 feature film The Time of Their Lives opposite Joan and Pauline Collins. Or maybe you’ve had the chance to see some of the short films he has made. Scott was behind Pendulum in 2017, The Disciplinarian and Boss Kiss in 2018, and #FitnessProblems and Broken in 2020.
A huge part of his repertoire is the number of accents he can do. Apart from New York and Southern American accents, he speaks convincing RP, Cockney, Birmingham, Leeds, Central Scottish, and German accents. You’ll also love his distinctive baritone, which he uses to belt out songs like Bohemian Rhapsody.
Scott has caught the attention of a number of respected names in the film industry owing to his range and the professionalism he brings to every project. “It was really a great pleasure working with Scott. He brought intelligence and empathy to the part and lifted it from the page to a breathing character beautifully,” one director in the U.K. was quoted as saying.
