When asked who his first mentor was, Scott told the publication, “Thankfully, that was Jane Elliot [ex-Tracey] and she, being the tough cookie she is, was very protective of me and advocated for me. She took me under under her wing and taught me everything — not just everything I needed to know but everything I didn’t know I needed to know. She and Tony [Geary, ex-Luke], together, influenced the way I think about acting probably more than anybody else.”
Scott also recalled his first on-screen romance. He recalled, “Oh, Lindze [Letherman, ex-Georgie]. When you’re in your teens, four years is a big age difference. Lindze was 14 when I was 18 and neither of us, truth be told, had any real- life experience with romance. I was a late bloomer. I didn’t even kiss a girl on the lips until I was, like, 17 or so, so it was new for both of us. We were at different stages in our lives, but she was so charismatic. She had such a stage presence. I remember being in awe about how comfortable in her own skin she was, and how secure she was. I will cherish that friendship forever.”
