Scott is best known for playing tennis pro Mark Jennings on “Dynasty” in a dramatic plotline where he is revealed to be the first husband of Linda Evans’ character, Krystle Carrington — and scandalously still married to her. In the 1960s gothic soap opera “Dark Shadows,” Scott played Sky Rumson, the husband of Angelique Bouchard (Lara Parker).
The actor also played Jeffrey Jordan on CBS’s “Where the Heart Is,” David McAllister on ABC’s “General Hospital” and Billy Lewis on CBS’s “Guiding Light.” He also had a starring role in CBS series “Concrete Cowboys” alongside Jerry Reed in 1981.
