  Biography  

 career
Scott dropped out of his Drama degree at Trinity College to join Dublin’s famous Abbey Theatre. He made his film debut aged seventeen as the young lead in acclaimed Irish film Korea.
After filming a small part in Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan, he worked with film and theatre director Karel Reisz in a Gate Theatre production of Long Day’s Journey Into Night for which he won Actor of the Year at the Independent/Spirit of Life Awards and received an Irish Times Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Scott appeared in the film Nora, with Ewan McGregor, and in a television adaptation of Henry James’s The American, alongside Diana Rigg and Matthew Modine, before making his London theatre debut in Conor McPherson’s Dublin Carol with Brian Cox at the Royal Court Theatre.
He was then cast in major roles in the BAFTA winning drama Longitude, opposite Michael Gambon, and the multi-award winning HBO miniseries Band of Brothers.

After starring in My Life in Film for the BBC, he received his first Olivier award for his role in A Girl in a Car with a Man at The Royal Court, and the Theatregoers' Choice Award for his performance in the National Theatre’s Aristocrats. He then created the roles of the twin brothers in the original Royal Court production of Christopher Shinn’s Dying City, which was later nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. In 2006, he made his Broadway debut opposite Julianne Moore and Bill Nighy in the Music Box Theater production of The Vertical Hour written by David Hare and directed by Sam Mendes, for which he was nominated for a Drama League Award.

In 2008, Scott appeared in the award-winning HBO miniseries John Adams, opposite Laura Linney and Paul Giamatti. In 2009, he appeared in Sea Wall, a one-man show written especially for him by Olivier award-winning playwright Simon Stephens.
