George C. Scott – Biografija

George Campbell Scott (Wise, Virginia, 18. oktobar 1927. – Westlake Village, Kalifornija, 22. septembar 1999.), američki pozorišni i filmski glumac, reditelj i producent. Ovjenčan Oscarom, dva Emmyja i sa dva Zlatna globusa.

Rodio se u mjestu Wise, Virginia. Majka Helen umrla je kad je trebao proslaviti 8. rođendan, pa ga je odgojio otac, direktor u automobilskoj kompaniji Buick. Godine 1945. Scott odlazi u marince gdje služi do 1949. godine. Jedna od njegovih dužnosti bila je ona čuvara na groblju Arlington, koja je, prema njemu, dovela do njegovog problema s alkoholom. U mladosti je želio postati pisac, kao i njegov uzor, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Napisao je mnogo priča, koje nikad nisu objavljene. Kasnije, kad je odrastao želio je napisati roman, ali nikad nije napisao jedan kojim bi bio zadovoljan.

Nakon marinaca odlazi na Univerzitet u Missouriju studirati novinarstvo, ali odlazi nakon jedne godine kako bi se posvetio glumi.

Isprva se iskazao u pozorištu, čak je bio nominovan za nagradu Tony. Glumio je “najljućeg” Richarda III. ikad, po sudu jednog kritičara. Kasnije prelazi na film, ostvarivši 45 uloga.

Najpoznatiji je kao general Patton u filmu iz 1970. i kao general “Buck” Turgindson u filmu “Dr. Strangelove“(reditelj Stanley Kubrick). Njegova uloga generala Pattona se smatra, po sudu filmskih kritičara i istoričara, jednom od najboljih uloga u istoriji filma.

Istakao se i po posuđivanju glasa i u drugim oblicima glume. Ženio se pet puta i imao šestoro djece. Umro je u 71. godini od puknuća trbušne aorte. Pokopan je pokraj Waltera Matthaua.
