Robert Scott Howard was born October 1, 1984 in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2008, he graduated from the University of Nevada Las Vegas with a Bachelor of Arts in Film. Although he loved acting, Howard entered the word of field marketing and became a brand builder. He later realized it wasn’t what he’d wanted and thus, began his acting and writing career.
Early Passion for Acting
Robert knew as a child that he wanted to become an actor as an adult. In 1998, he completed his first theater production and fell in love with entertainment.
At the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), Robert honed his acting and directing skills on over a dozen short films, including the award winning “Nobody Likes David Himmel” and “Brother John.” He received his BA in Film at UNLV fall of 2008. Robert was trained by Lara Mazour and Marko Sakren, as well as the legendary Robert Carnegie at Playhouse West in Los Angeles.
Howard started his career by landing supporting roles in the two independent features “Eyes of The Chameleon” and “Rose of Death” while still a film student at UNLV. “Eyes of The Chameleon” went on to become a cult classic. He struck gold, when he landed the role in the prologue to the famous “Saw” film franchise, playing the role of Paul. During this time, he also screen tested for Studio features “Perkins 14″ and the “Star Trek” reboot.
In 2014, Howard moved from his hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada to Los Angeles, California to focus on his acting and writing career.
Recently, Robert Scott Howard finished starring opposite Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”) and Holly Valance (“Dead or Alive,” “Taken”) in the independent action film “Red Herring,” which is now receiving Studio attention.
Howard finished writing his first feature length film “Rebound” and his short film “Cross Race Effect.” Both are currently in pre-production.
Howard’s energy extends into other realms, too. In his free time, he enjoys spending time out in nature where he can hike and fish. As a hobby, Howard started his own photography company Logan King Photography, where he photograph animals along his life’s journey. Howard is also an avid video gamer, with love for games like Red Dead Redemption and Tomb Raider.
For Howard, film is an all-consuming passion. “When I’m doing a movie, I’m not doing anything else. It’s all about the movie.”
