About the Scott Turner Interview

Hi everybody, I'm Scott Turner Schofield, and I went to college to learn how to be an actor. Because I am transgender, I was held back from learning how to act in a lot of roles, because they were traditional men & women's roles, so a mentor said "Don't wait for anyone to give you a role, just write your own." So I ended up writing 3 one-man shows about being transgender that have toured around the world for more than a decade.

The Bold & The Beautiful decided they wanted to take on the transgender story, a transgender theme, and they did something that most producers have never done - they invited a transgender actor to play a transgender role. They went to GLAAD to find out what transgender actors were out there, and my name was on a list, and I auditioned with a group of other transgender actors, and was invited to join the cast - all because I am transgender, not despite. That's what's so exciting about this moment for me. That I get to be all I am, instead of having to hide a part of myself.

My one-man show "Becoming A Man In 127 EASY Steps" will be at the Founders MCC Theater in Los Angeles on May 29 & 30th - link. And my fiancé and I just released a web series, called "Ze Said She Said" out now.

I'm very excited to play the character of Nick on the show. I encourage people to watch full episodes of the show on CBS.com - I won't be discussing any spoilers about The Bold & The Beautiful, but I'm happy to answer the rest of your questions.

This has been a great experience for me, so thank you. I'm on pretty much all of the social networks, so please do follow me, and if you have further questions, I'm always excited to talk about this stuff, so do reach out. And please watch & share my video with Jessica - we hope that's going to do some world changing itself!
