Scott was born in Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England; home of Brown Ale and Newcastle United Football [soccer]. The eldest of four children, he has two brothers and a sister.
Initially schooled in Newcastle, Scott moved to an all boys boarding school in Lancaster. After school, Scott moved to Edinburgh, Scotland on a voyage of self discovery. His mother is Scottish and he spent a lot of time in Scotland as a boy. His first summer there he managed to get a job working at the famous Gilded Balloon Theatre and worked with such great actors/comedians as Stephen Fry, Ben Elton, and Eddie Izzard. "They set me in motion, giving me the drive I needed to move forward," said Scott. "Soon it became apparent that I would need to move to London in order to truly focus on this as a career."
After only a few weeks in London, Scott was spotted by the modeling agency STORM, home to many models including Kate Moss and Elle McPherson. Modeling allowed him to earn enough money to put himself through school. After applying, and being accepted to, many of London's most prestigious acting academies, Scott enrolled at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA).
After studying there for two years Scott embarked on his journey to the United States. He soon met a man who introduced him to acting coach Ivana Chubbuck - a student of the late, renowned Hollywood acting coach Roy London. Scott believes that her influence, support and belief in him led to his success.
Fans will recognize Scott most recently as "Ethan" from "All My Children." He recently located back to Los Angeles from New York and lives with his best canine girl, Eva.
When Sami gave birth to twins, a DNA test stated that Lucas was the father of the girl and EJ was the father of the boy. EJ pushed Sami into marriage, and his deep love for Sami kept their marriage together until Nicole Walker seduced him. Although Nicole was told that she could never have a child, she became pregnant with EJ's "miracle" baby after their one night stand.
Nicole had a miscarriage. Devastated by the loss of her own child as well as being fully aware of her husband's repressed love for his ex-wife, Sami, Nicole continued to pretend that she was pregnant, deceiving EJ. Meanwhile, Sami was actually pregnant with EJ's baby. Nicole swapped Sami's baby with another, and claimed EJ and Sami's baby as her own.
Eventually, through the effort of Sami's new boyfriend Rafe Hernandez, the truth of Nicole's baby swap came to light, and Nicole ran away with the child. When EJ saw Sami's devastation at losing her child, he brought Sydney home, presenting himself as the hero and embarrassing Rafe who was leading the FBI investigation.
Rafe and Sami broke up, and Sami and EJ became engaged again. But Rafe later exposed the truth; EJ actually kidnapped Sydney to get Sami to fall in love with him. After receiving a tip that EJ intended to leave town and take Sydney and Johnny with him, Sami shot EJ in the head while he was passed out. After EJ found out Sami was the one who shot him, he and Sami came to a truce and agreed to share custody of their two children. EJ remarried and was in an unhappy union with Nicole Walker, even though his heart really belonged to Nicole's sister, Taylor.
Despite Sami and EJ's agreement, EJ continued to create drama in her life. EJ and Stefano kidnapped Rafe and held him in the mansion's secret jail cell, wiped out his memory, and replaced him with a look-a-like to act as the real Rafe. The look-a-like Rafe was instructed to gradually make Sami divorce Rafe, with the hopes of getting Rafe out of the lives of his children forever.
Looking to redeem himself, EJ decided to run for mayor, against his brother-in-law and Lexie's husband Abe Carver; Nicole served as his campaign manager while he convinced her to hold off their divorce. He framed John Black for corporate embezzlement and used this to his advantage during campaign season.
Johnny went missing when the Brady family gathered at the Pub before John's trial and someone tried to kill John. EJ and Sami were devastated when a news report claimed that Johnny was dead, and to cope with the pain, they ended up having sex. Sami's son, Will discovered them and tried to blackmail EJ into helping him leave town. EJ turned the tables on Will and revealed that he knew it was Will, not Lucas, who shot him during his wedding to Sami in 2007; he then forced Will to work for him. Fortunately, Johnny was discovered hiding at the Pub by Will and Rafe. Will was forced to steal Abe's campaign information and hand it over to EJ and Nicole. EJ won the election and he and Nicole decided to renew their relationship. However, the evening is interrupted when Rafe revealed that he overheard Will talking about Sami and EJ's one-night stand.
In early 2012, Nicole revealed to EJ that it was Stefano who attempted to cost him the election and destroyed his case against John Black. Meanwhile, EJ bought Sami an apartment while Nicole learned she was pregnant, and claimed Rafe as the father. The family was devastated when Lexie revealed that she was dying from a brain tumor. EJ confronted his father and was shocked when Stefano revealed that he wasn't EJ's father. In August 2012, it was revealed that Stefano and EJ are in fact, biological father and son, as the document indicating it was forged. EJ becomes fixated on winning Sami back and reuniting the family, despite inherently knowing that Nicole is truly carrying his baby and not Rafe's.
