The daughter of playwright/screenwriter Allan Scott, actress Pippa Scott attended Radcliffe and UCLA before training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Scott made her Broadway bow in [[Feature~V20005~Child of Fortune~glückskinder]], then worked steadily in the various live TV anthologies of the 1950s. Signed to a Warner Bros. contract in 1956, she made her first screen appearance as Lucy Edwards in the [[Performer~P90133~John Ford~johnford]] classic [[Feature~V43376~The Searchers~thesearchers]]. Alternating between TV, films and Broadway throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Scott amassed an impressive resumé, ranging from a starring assignment in the New York company of John Osborne's Look Back in Anger to recurring roles on such TV series as Mr. Lucky (1959-60) and The Virginian (1962-63 season only). Segueing gracefully into character roles in the 1970s, Scott was seen as the nursery-teacher lady friend of seasoned cop Jack Warden on the 1976 TV weekly Jigsaw John. Pippa Scott served as producer of the 1989 film Life on the Edge. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
