Biography

Canadian Scott Bairstow has played wide-eyed young leads in a number of film and TV projects, first winning attention as Newt Call in the syndicated version of "Lonesome Dove: The Series" (1994-1996). In 1997, he had a shot to leap into the top rung of youthful leading men playing nature photographer Marty Stouffer who goes searching for "Wild America" with his younger brothers. Although the film failed to connect at the box office, Bairstow went on to a co-starring role opposite Kevin Costner (who also directed) in "The Postman" (also 1997).
