Biography

As an actor, director and producer, Campbell Scott - who first made an impact on moviegoers with his touching portrayal of a man living with cancer in the Julia Roberts showcase, "Dying Young" (1991) - was inarguably a dignitary of American independent film. The stage-trained Broadway actor never strayed far from the world of small, personal films, where he impressed critics and festival-goers with the difficult acting challenges he took on in the AIDS chronicle "Longtime Companion" (1989), the literary gem "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" (1994), and the jaded New Yorker story "Roger Dodger" (2002). Scott also earned a solid reputation as a director, first sharing duties with Stanley Tucci in the appetizing indie favorite "Big Night" (1996) before taking the helm of his own television adaptation of "Hamlet" (Hallmark Channel, 2000) and dramatic features "Final" (2001) and "Off the Map" (2005). With his soulful performances as polished but emotionally clueless professionals and brilliantly nuanced oddballs, Scott well deserved his reputation as a champion of independent film and one of its strongest talents.

Bonus Trivia

.

About Scott's performance in "Longtime Companion": "Willy was the least articulate character in the film. It's very hard to do, but it was clear from the first reading that Campbell was going to be killingly accurate. He was so damned good that when we began editing, every time there was a pause, every one would say, 'Cut to Campbell.' He really became the heart of the movie." – screenwriter Craig Lucas quoted in Rolling Stone magazine, June 14, 1990

.

On his famous parents Colleen Dewhurst and George C. Scott: "I'm so grateful to have had the chance to work with her. I learned a lot from her, and she was a pro. She was delightful. I feel the same way about my dad although I haven't worked with him. He's a smart wonderful actor and I always learn from watching him. He's an old theater pro from way back, and he has a real idea about the nobility of the profession which, let's face it, kind of goes out the window these days." – Scott quoted in The Boston Globe, April 9, 1998
