Andrew Scott stars in "Sherlock" on PBS as Jim Moriarity. For his work, Scott won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2012. He also recently starred in the feature film "Pride," which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical.

Andrew Scott is emerging as one of the most exciting and versatile young actors of his generation. He starred as Paul McCartney in BBC film, "Lennon Naked," as well as with Ben Winshaw in a sell-out run of the play "Cock" at the Royal Court Theatre. Other work includes the multi-award winning "John Adams," opposite Laura Linney and Paul Giamatti, for HBO, "Sea Wall," a one-man show written especially for him by Olivier-award winning playwright Simon Stephens, and "The Vertical Hour," his critically acclaimed Broadway debut opposite Julianne Moore, written by David Hare and directed by Sam Mendes, for which Scott was nominated for a Drama League Award.

Scott more recently starred in the feature film "Anton Chekhov's The Duel" and played the lead role in the National Theatre's production of "Emperor and Galilean," appearing on stage for much of the play's 3 ½ hour length. He appeared in an ambitious, day-long production on BBC Radio Four of James Joyce's "Ulysses," as well as appearing onscreen in the BBC One thriller series "Blackout," opposite Christopher Eccleston, and playing his first leading role in the ITV drama "The Town." In additon, he starred opposite Matthew Rhys in the feature film "The Scapegoat" and appeared in "The Stag," an Irish comedy drama film about a bachelor party weekend.

Scott made his film debut aged seventeen as the young lead in acclaimed Irish film "Korea." Dropping out of his drama degree at Trinity College to join Dublin's famous Abbey Theatre, he garnered rave reviews for a season of lead roles. After filming a small part in Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan," Scott worked with legendary film and theater director Karel Reisz on the classic American play "Long Day's Journey into Night," for which Scott won Actor of the Year at the Independent/Spirit of Life awards as well as an Irish Times award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He was just 21 years old.

Scott then filmed "Nora" with Ewan Mcgregor, and Henry James' "The American," alongside Diana Rigg and Matthew Modine, before making his London theater debut in Conor McPherson's "Dublin Carol" with Brian Cox at the Royal Court Theatre. Scott was then cast in major roles in the BAFTA-winning drama "Longitude," opposite Michael Gambon, and multi-award winning miniseries "Band of Brothers" for HBO. For his role in Buena Vista's "Dead Bodies," Scott beat Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy and Aidan Quinn to win Best Actor at the Irish Film Awards. Scott then went on to receive a Shooting Star Award at the Berlin Film Festival for the same movie.

After starring in "My Life in Film" for the BBC, Scott received his first Olivier award for his role in "A Girl in a Car with a Man" at The Royal Court, and the Theatre Goers Choice award for his heartbreaking performance in the National Theatre's "Aristocrats." He then created the roles of the twin brothers in the original production of Christopher Shinn's "Dying City" at The Royal Court, which was eventually nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
