Scott was born in Brisbane, Australia and later moved to Vancouver, Canada. He began acting at the age of 3 and fell in love with theater. He went to theater school after high school where he met soon to be fellow voice actor Ted Cole.
After he left school he planned on being an actor in theater. He met someone who was directing the cartoon GI Joe in the 80's and he got into voice acting. He started in "The New Adventures of He-man" and made a name for himself by getting into many more cartoons after that. He is sometimes nicknamed, "the man of 1,000 voices."
Even though he's a very famous voice actor and has tons of fans, he's always extremely nice to everyone and tries to spend as much time with each individual fan as possible. He is a truly nice guy.
