Multiple Sclerosis Diagnosis - An Interview with Scott St. Patrick
Scott St. Patrick discusses his experience as an actor recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). He speaks about how it has affected him as an actor and shifted his outlook on life.
Scott St. Patrick is an American writer and actor from Westchester, NY. Classically trained, Scott has studied with such stalwarts in theatre like Deena Levy, Trudy Steibl, and Rochelle Oliver at HB Studios. His passion and studies have led him to work with major repertoire theatres on and off Broadway; including starring in the smash faith based production, “Laid Off” at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Since moving to Los Angeles in 2009, Scott has appeared in a variety of commercials, Independent films, and theatre productions. However, his staple has been the production of his spellbinding, one-man play, “Act God” which was executive produced by mentor and friend Don B. Welch.
In addition to acting, Scott has a strong passion for bringing awareness to social issues through his writing. The recent shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two black men shot and killed by law enforcement in 2016, prompted Scott to write the controversial play Minority Report in September of 2016. Not only was the show well received (Standing Room Only) but it is currently being used by several colleges and universities as a part of their diversity initiatives.
