A biography of an actor from Ireland based in England, and who almost no one has heard of in the United States. Why write about him? Is he famous enough? Does that matter when the subject is one of the best actors in a generation?
There are many, many professional actors all around the world. There are many actors who yearn to have Andrew Scott's stature in the industry. Scott, who rose from an average middle-class family in Dublin, Ireland with absolutely no connection to the world of show business, but through the incredible talent evident from the time he was a child of nine or ten, worked his way up to becoming a largely self-taught actor of stage, screen and television. This is the far from finished tale of the simplicity of Andrew's beginnings to the headiness of his current fame as a multi-award winner in the prime of his career. This is not the story of the ups and downs of an actor at the end of his career. This is the inspiring true story of a flower at the time of blooming.
There is also a separate companion book to the celebrity biography detailing the arduous and unusual research undertaken over a period of two years. Both will be published by Chicago publisher, Gambit Publishing simultaneously in time for Christmas readers interested in learning about Andrew Scott, acting, and writing.
