He completed the 6 month full-time acting program at the Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts and continued training with Andrew Mcilroy & Associates along with being privately coached by mentor Michael Coleman.
It didn't take long for this fresh faced thespian to make a splash.
His infectious, easy going, and loveable personality helped him land his first principal role in 2007 and he has been working steadily ever since. Later that year he landed his first supporting lead in the feature film "Free Style", starring alongside Corbin Bleu (High School Musical): "Scott Patey pops out of the supporting cast" - Variety Magazine (July 2009). Since then he's amassed multiple credits including appearances on network television shows Fringe, Supernatural and A&E's Bates Motel along with films The Odds, Lloyd the Conqueror, & Paramount Pictures Monster Trucks due out January 13, 2017.
Several films he's been a part of have screened at film festivals worldwide, including the Toronto International Film Festival: "Scott Patey is a welcome bright spot, consistently walking the line of friend and foe authentically as Desson's trash-talking rival Benson." - The Film Stage TIFF 2011 - The Odds. Many of those films also premiered at other festivals in Canada, The United States, South Korea, India, France, The Czech Republic and Denmark. Scott has even shared the screen with some of his idols including the late Leslie Nielsen, Steve Martin, Jack Black, Owen Wilson, Clive Owen, Brian Posehn, Patton Oswalt, Will Sasso, Harland Williams, and Mike "Bubbles" Smith of the Trailer Park Boys.
When he's not on your TV you can catch him performing live every week as a Main Stage player with the renowned Vancouver Theater Sports League. He also hosts a weekly event that is approaching it's 250th show. Rock, Paper, Corduroy (produced by Jolly Brain Productions) has become a cultivated hit within the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver. In 2015, he was asked to join Matterhorn, a high energy 4 piece Improv group that runs monthly at Fortune Sound Club in downtown Vancouver. His charisma, on-point-wit, strong character ability and undeniable stage presence has been seen on-stage at The Comedy Mix, Yuk Yuks and Lafflines in Vancouver - even in Los Angeles and Toronto, Edmonton, Bellingham, Seattle and Portland. All of which has landed him other opportunities like hosting the 2015 West Coast Hip-Hop Dance Competition, various events for companies like Plenty of Fish, Flight Centre, and Yelp! as well as presenting at the 2013 Leo/UBCP Awards and 2015 Jessie Awards.
With all these skills and experience under his belt, Scott started coaching actors in 2010 and eventually teaching part-time at Go Studios with Vancouver Young Actors School in 2011. He's still teaching audition and scene study with VYAS and Improv through ICI and Vancouver Theatre Sports League. Being asked to be a reader in multiple casting rooms around Vancouver has allowed Scott to gain valuable knowledge in what casting is looking for. Although he will never stop learning for himself as his career grows, he enjoys sharing his knowledge and helping mentor young actors. "Being unaware of what's going to happen next is exciting and can be scary, but I wouldn't have it any other way." - Scott Patey.
