Personal Life

Scott is gay, and first commented publicly on his sexuality in an interview with The Independent in November 2013. He stated, "Mercifully, these days people don't see being gay as a character flaw. But nor is it a virtue, like kindness. Or a talent, like playing the banjo. It's just a fact. Of course, it's part of my make-up, but I don't want to trade on it."When asked in the same interview how he prepared his accent for the drama Legacy, in which he played a Soviet diplomat, Scott said, "There isn't a huge amount of footage of Russians speaking English as a second language, so I started looking at Vladimir Putin videos on YouTube. But then Putin introduced anti-gay legislation this summer so—being a gay person—I switched to Rudolf Nureyev videos instead. It was another Nureyev defection of sorts!"Scott was ranked at No. 22 on The Independent's Rainbow List 2014.

Early Life

Scott was born in Dublin on 21 October 1976, the son of Nora and Jim Scott. His mother was an art teacher, while his father worked at an employment agency. He has an older sister, Sarah, and a younger sister, Hannah. He was raised as a Catholic, but has since left the faith. He attended Gonzaga College while taking weekend classes at a drama school for children, and appeared in two ads on Irish television. At 17, he was chosen for a starring role in his first film, Korea. He won a bursary to art school, but elected to study drama at Trinity College Dublin, leaving after six months to join Dublin's Abbey Theatre. He once stated to the London Evening Standard magazine that he always had a "healthy obsession" with acting.
