Is an Acting Career Right for You?

Scott Patey

is originally from Alberta and came to Vancouver in 2009 to enrol in our Dramatic Arts Program Diploma“I specifically came to Vancouver to train at VADA. Without that training I would not have an agent and would not be booking the work I am.” As a professional actor, improvisor and host, Scott has gained a lot of confidence and done a lot of networking. He now has over 60 Film & TV credits to his name. Most recently Scott appeared in Paramount Pictures Sonic The Hedgehog Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Apple+’s Musical Hit Schmigadoon. He has also appeared in Netflix Lucifer as well as Amazon Prime’s Upload and numerous hit TV Series such as A Million Little Things, Colony, The Age of Adulting, DC Legends of Tomorrow, Bates Motel, Supernatural.

His words of wisdom for aspiring actors: “Do Not Give Up! Also, let yourself get frustrated. It is a part of it all. Listen to your teachers and experienced people in the industry. You do not always have to do it the way they would, but take from that advice and make smart choices. Surround yourself with positive people and last but not least, no matter what your schedule always remain involved with your passion somehow.”
