Born in Glenrothes, Dougray Scott studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama from 1984-7. Whilst there he won the award for most promising actor. His first high-profile role came in 1991 when he was cast as part of the long-running TV series, `Soldier Soldier? (1991-7). This was followed by roles in the films `Ever After? (1998) and `Enigma? (2001). In 2000 he was cast as the villain in `Mission Impossible: II? and as Wolverine in `X-Men?. However, the filming of `Mission Impossible? overran and so Hugh Jackman replaced him in the `X-Men? lead role. Scott was a favourite to replace Pierce Brosnan as James Bond before Daniel Craig was revealed as the next 007. From 2006-7 he was in the American TV series `Desperate Housewives?. More recently he played Marilyn Monroe?s husband, Arthur Miller in `My Week with Marilyn? (2011).
