Scott served as acting coach for 20th Century Fox Studios under a multi-year, exclusive contract, coaching actors for television projects. He served as acting coach on the feature film “Princess Ka`iulani” starring Barry Pepper, Will Patton, and Q’orianka Kilcher. Scott has coached principal actors, for more than 3000 hours on the sets of motion pictures and national television shows. He has produced, cast, and/or directed more than 100 professional productions and he’s written, directed, and produced dozens of TV commercials. He was the full-time, on-set, acting coach for the Fox-TV series North Shore and was previously the full-time acting coach for the hit TV show Baywatch, where he first coached actor Jason Momoa (Aquaman). Scott went on to coach Momoa on 44 episodes of two national tv-series, a tv movie, and several auditions (when he still auditioned for roles!)
Starting back in the mid-1980s Scott began to get hired by actors, studios, and production companies to Direct, Produce, and Coach, hundreds of actors, including: Donna Mills (Knotts Landing), Steve Allen, Jayne Meadows, Charles Grodin, Richard Kline, Vincent Gardenia, Florence Henderson, Robert Reed, John Astin, Ted Lange (Love Boat), Denver Pyle (Dukes of Hazard), Tony Bennett & many others.
In 1994, after living and working in Los Angeles for more than 25 years, Scott moved to Hawai`i with his wife, Jeanne, in order to raise their (soon to be) two children in a safe and sane environment. They opened their school in 2000, to train actors for film and television. During this time, Scott coached actors like Pat Morita (Karate Kid), Brooke Burns (Dog Eat Dog), Dominic Purcell (Prison Break), and series-regulars on shows like LOST, North Shore, and Baywatch, as well as actors appearing in: Indiana Jones & the Crystal Skull, Hawaii Five-0, ER, 50 First Dates, Pearl Harbor, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Rundown, Tears of the Sun, Blue Crush, Lilo & Stich, and many more. In 2013 Scott opened a second studio, this one in Portland, Oregon. Within a year or so most of his Portland students were regularly booking roles on TV shows like Grimm, Leverage, Portlandia, and The Librarians.
Now (thanks to Zoom) Scott teaches weekly classes in Honolulu and Portland and coaches actors in L.A., New York, London, and literally all around the world.
Scott is a 40+ year member of Actors Equity Association, AFTRA and the Screen Actors Guild (now SAG-AFTRA), where he served for 12 years on the SAG and then SAG-AFTRA’s National Board of Directors and 16 years on the SAG and SAG-AFTRA Hawai`i Local Board of Directors. He still serves on several SAG-AFTRA National Committees, as Co-Chair of the SAG-AFTRA National Conservatory Committee and now as Vice President of the SAG-AFTRA Portland Local. He’s taught acting to hundreds of actors, in classes across the country, from Los Angeles to Florida, from Seattle to San Francisco, from Washington D.C. to Guam (yes, Guam!). He has auditioned more than 15,000 actors for various productions and his clients appear on television, Film, & on Broadway, daily.
