Named one of Variety’s Top 10 Actors to Watch, Scott Michael Foster has brought to life some of the most versatile and memorable characters on screen today. He can currently be seen starring on The CW’s award-winning, critically acclaimed series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” Foster joined the show during the second season and was an instant hit as alpha-male attorney Nathaniel Plimpton, a possible love interest for Rebecca (Rachel Bloom). He became a series regular for the third season in 2018.
Additional recent credits for Foster include starring as Wick Briggs on ABC’s “Blood and Oil,” as Kristoff on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” and as a recurring on ABC Family’s critically acclaimed series “Chasing Life” as Leo. On the film front, Foster starred as Daniel Meyer in the horror/thriller feature film The Pact II, and wrapped production on the independent feature My Dead Boyfriend, directed by his former co-star Anthony Edwards.
Born in Illinois and raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas, Foster knew from an early age that he wanted to be an actor. He grew up just outside of Chicago until he was 12 years old, where his family lived on a farm and he was home schooled. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Foster landed several independent films and in 2007, he booked what would become his regular acting gig for the next five years: a series regular role starring as Cappie on the hit series “Greek” for ABC Family.
Off screen, Foster is an active supporter of The Sue Weaver Cause, an organization that promotes consumer awareness of unsafe service employment – their quest is to require proper annual criminal background checks on all workers sent to people’s homes. Foster is also a musician, making music for over a decade with his band Siren’s Eye. He recently became a certified scuba diver, and currently lives in the Los Angeles area with his two dogs, Oliver and Charlie.
