Scott, 23, grew up in the Macarthur Region of New South Wales with his twin brother, older brother and parents. Acting wasn't a career Scott initially considered, but after discovering his talent for the stage during high school, he knew it was something he wanted to pursue. With Home and Away as his first regular television role, Scott says he can't believe his luck.
"I was convinced I didn't get the role, so when my agent called and told me I got it I almost fell over. I was so surprised and excited to be given such a great opportunity!"
After graduating in 2010, Scott enrolled at the University of New South Wales, studying a Bachelor of Media (Screen and Sound Production). However after a year, Scott decided to focus on acting and completed several master classes at The HubStudio and 16th Street Actors Studio over the course of two years.
Scott has appeared in several independent films and his first television role was on The Code in 2014. He also features in the television advertisements for Weet-Bix and Up & Go.
Scott joins the cast as the brooding teenager, Hunter. Hunter may come across as your typical moody teenager, but dig deeper and there's something a lot darker beneath the surface.
"At first glance Hunter definitely seems like just a regular angsty kid. But at the heart of all his actions, he desperately wants a family and to be a normal kid."
Scott currently resides in Sydney's east and enjoys going back home and spending time with his family and dog, Bumper. He is also part of The Kings Collective, a newly formed indie theatre company in Sydney. Last year their adaption of Kenneth Lonergan's This Is Our Youth won Best Production at the Sydney Fringe Festival.
