Coltin Scott
(Nikolas Cassadine)
Smart, sensitive, and charming, Coltin Scott embodies the attributes that make Nikolas Cassadine a beloved character on "General Hospital." Coltin took over the already established role in July of 1999, with seamless grace.

Coltin's story is a true Hollywood fairytale. After a knee injury prevented him from pursuing a professional career in soccer, Coltin packed up his car and headed for Los Angeles to pursue another passion -- acting. With only two hundred dollars and nowhere to live, Coltin slept in his car and showered at the gym. Within three weeks, he met his agent in a restaurant in Los Angeles. In less than one year, Coltin landed the coveted role of Nikolas on "General Hospital."

Prior to that, Coltin guest-starred on "Pacific Blue" and was a series regular on "Planet Patrol." His film credits include co-starring roles in "Justice" and "Kraa! The Seamonster." He recently finished filming the lead role in the soon-to-be-released independent feature, "Disco Boyz."

A native of St. Louis, Coltin describes performing as "a dream since I was eight years old." Determination and hard work led to his success; however, a big factor was the support of Coltin's biggest fans -- his family.

His grandmother, who danced on Broadway with Rosemary Clooney, would keep his spirits high when they were down. "I would have left L.A. a long time ago if it weren't for her support," Coltin reflects. Coltin's mother, an avid "General Hospital" viewer for more than 35 years, could not have been happier for her son's success. Coltin's biggest supporter in life, his father, passed away before Coltin came to Los Angeles, but has remained a constant source of inspiration.

Nephew to the renowned musician Guy Lombardo, Coltin shares the same passion for music. He is currently working on his second album. In his spare time, Coltin plays soccer in a semi-pro league, writes and records music, and is writing a film titled "Fatherly Love," based on his father's life. An optimist at heart, Coltin truly appreciates the opportunities he has been given. He is living proof that dreams come true.
