Shane grew up in Riverina NSW in the city of Wagga Wagga. During high school he studied Drama all 6 years and participated in a number of High School Musicals and plays. Upon graduation in 2011 he moved to the ACT to study at the Canberra Academy of Dramatic Art. He obtained a number of new skills at CADA which prepared him for new opportunities that came his way in 2013 such as a role in the feature film “Drown” which was directed by Dean Francis and most recently a lead role in a T.V Pilot which is still in its early stages of post-production. In his spare time he likes to play guitar, sing as well as collect and read comic books. He has also just been accepted to Screenwise acting for film and TV school.

Scott began his journey in the performing arts at the Beenleigh Theatre Group in 2004, involving himself in singing, dancing, and acting, as well as teaching basic drums and ukulele. After 9 years and over 20 shows performed across multiple venues within South East Queensland, including a nomination for Best Comic Actor in the One Act Play Festival for his role of John in “Ferris Wheel” (2012), and a resume of great theatre roles ranging from chorus to highlighted characters, Scott knew that this was a hobby no longer. At the end of 2012, Scott discovered “The Actors Workshop” and immediately knew this was the open door he had been searching for into the acting industry. Through the course, Scott has role played for Queensland Emergency Services, Oxley Police Academy and Child Services, and his appreciation for acting both on stage and screen has flourished. Within one year, Scott has been cast in multiple student films from Griffith, QUT and JMC Academy as well as other freelance productions. Most recently, Scott has been awarded the Best Supporting Actor Award at the 2013 Gold Coast Theatre Awards for his role of Brian in the new musical “Billy Buckett: A Rock and Roll Love Story.”

  2. I have had the pleasure of watching Scott Daniel Young perform on several occasions and have never yet been disappointed. His illustrious stage presence and command of the audience naturally draws you in and makes you believe every word his characters utter. Whether playing subtle, serious roles, or flamboyant, comedic characters, Scott will have you on the edge of your seat, wanting more. Best of luck to you, Mr Young, in everything you do.

  3. Good on you Shane! For anyone reading this vote Shane Merrigan! I directed a TV Pilot with him and he’s a great actor but more importantly a great guy.
