Ian Kevin Scott

Board Advisor Prospect

Film Producing & Acting

Hollywood Area

To look at IAN SCOTT, one might think him to be genial and sweet and nice, all of which he is. But what his gentle demeanor and ruddy, beaming face don't suggest is the electric energy and unstoppable showmanship that comes through in all his performances. Put this guy under a spotlight and he will belt, strut, and kick 'til the cows come home -- which is why he's racked up more local stage awards the past few years than almost any other actor. Moreover, this mild-mannered carrot top, while adept at playing sweethearts... can deliver a devil with no trouble. His Cabaret Emcee... radiated demonic glee. Underestimate IAN SCOTT at your peril.
