SCOTT TURNER SCHOFIELD

Named a “Trans Influencer of Hollywood” by OUT Magazine,Scott Turner Schofield became the first openly transgender actor in daytime television in the United States with the recurring role of “Nick" on CBS’s the Bold and the Beautiful.  He is a part of Hollywood's Transgender Tipping Point, and one of very few female to male actors in mainstream media.

Before his big television break, Scott toured internationally with his original solo theatre performances "Underground Transit," "Debutante Balls" and "Becoming a Man in 127 EASY Steps.”

Schofield has been honored with many distinctions and awards for his acting, among them a "Fruitie" audience choice award for Best Off-Broadway Performance, a Princess Grace Foundation Acting Fellowship, and a Creation Fund grant from the National Performance Network.

Recent projects include the recurring role of Liev in Pride: The Series on Amazon, and starring in the acclaimed short film Transmute (written & directed by Star Victoria). He has a starring role in The Conductor, a major motion picture written and directed by Maria Peters, due out late 2018. 

Schofield uses his platform to build bridges of understanding about transgender people in the mainstream, and served as an educator, consultant and spokesperson long before arriving in any spotlight. Considered one of his generation’s trailblazers in the movement for transgender liberation, Schofield uses a powerful mix of storytelling and advocacy to create and change policies at educational institutions and corporations. His TED Talk, "Ending Gender" is an acclaimed and globally-utilized tool for understanding gender diversity.
