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).
