Though he became best known as the villain Moriarty on the hit series "Sherlock" (BBC, 2010-), Andrew Scott was difficult to typecast. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1976, Scott began attending Saturday theater classes as a child. By his late teens, acting had become the young Scott's major passion, and after studying drama at Trinity College for six months, he dropped out to join Dublin's Abbey Theatre. He would eventually branch into film as well, making his debut in the independent film "Korea" (1995) and later landing a small role in the war epic "Saving Private Ryan" (1998). However, the stage would remain Scott's focus during this period, as he won acclaim for his performance in Eugene O'Neill's "Long Day's Journey into Night" at the Gate Theatre in Dublin before making his London stage debut alongside Brian Cox in a production of "Dublin Carol" at the Royal Court Theatre in 2000. His Broadway debut would soon follow as he appeared alongside Julianne Moore and Bill Nighy in "The Vertical Hour" in 2003. The following year, Scott was cast in a starring role on the comedy series "My Life in Film" (BBC, 2004), opening him up to a wider audience and showcasing his comedic range. Though he would continue to focus largely on the stage, Scott would eventually return to TV when he was cast in his famous role on "Sherlock" in 2010. He would go on to make equally notable appearances in movies like the James Bond film "Spectre" (2015), returning to the stage for a momentous turn as Hamlet in 2017. Scott's next return to television came in 2019, when he took up the role of a nonconforming priest on Phoebe Waller-Bridge's series "Fleabag" (BBC, 2016-).
