William Lee Scott - Details


Audiences may best remember Scott as Christina Ricci’s boyfriend in The Opposite of Sex, for which he received strong critical accolades. Previously, he co-starred in the sci-fi drama Gattaca, as the younger character played by Loren Dean. In 1995, he won Columbia University’s Best Actor Award for his work in the student film ’Tis the Season.

Scott’s television credits include the Emmy Award nominated movie Before Women Had Wings, starring with Ellen Barkin and Julia Stiles, which was Oprah Winfrey’s first telefilm production; Robert Altman’s Gun, and Robert Pastorelli’s series Cracker, as well as the WB network series The Steve Harvey Show.

Scott was raised in a small town north of New York City, where he attended an arts-intensive high school studying writing, painting, singing and theatre. He then moved to Manhattan, where he was discovered while waiting tables at the Cub Room in SoHo.
Now living in Los Angeles, Scott divides his time between acting and screenwriting. He still finds time to paint, read, play drums and go fly-fishing with his father.
