Scott Bakula's Quotes

  • When I used to do tours, I'd be anxious and nervous on the plane returning to New York. I now realize the reaction was because I was coming back unemployed. Actors are constantly being put to the test.
  • On how he got the role of Captain Jonathan Archer: Kerry McCluggage and Garry Hart were both at Universal when I did Quantum Leap (1989). We had a long and very good relationship. My production company was already at Paramount when they approached me. I was excited, but wanted to meet Rick Berman and Brannon Braga and read the pilot script. Once I read that and met with the guys it was kind of a no-brainer in terms of a role to play, a place to work, with great collaborators, and it would keep me at home for the next few years. (September/October 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)
  • On the best thing about playing a Star Trek captain: I was very excited. I was a huge fan of the original Star Trek, and I'd never even dreamed that I would someday be captain of a starship... I'm a big fan of the future of space programs on this planet, especially if it's a space program that can proceed in a peaceful fashion, keeping weapons out of space. (September/October 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)
  • I like fantasy. I've always been the kind of kid who likes to dream about other things I could be and exotic situations I could be in. I don't know what makes you that kind of person. Some people probably don't have time for fantasy. I probably have too much time for it.
  • [2014, on Lord of Illusions (1995)] By the end of that movie, I was in about three hours of makeup, by the time they did the tattoo and the burn and the cut and the blood and the dirt and the contact lenses. You know, it just went on and on. And I had to get there that much earlier as it went on to get ready for that day's work... Clive Barker is just genius, and he's incredibly gifted in so many different ways. He can write and direct and paint and do all these different things, and he can do them all extremely well. I was in awe just being around him. He was and is a sweetheart of a guy. But it was a very difficult shoot. Very, very difficult, and very challenging. But great performances from a bunch of people, and... that was another one that we kind of thought was going to become a series of movies, but it never happened. There was a second film script that came out, and we were talking about it, they were trying to decide who was going to direct it, and there were all kinds of things that were close to going, but then there were other things that happened with the studio, et cetera, and it never came to fruition. But it was a great experience, and I just love Clive Barker.

  3. The white streak in his hair appeared when he was four years old. He had been helping a neighbor paint, and his mother thought he had gotten paint in his hair.

  8. The only actor to have two roles included in TV Guide's "25 Legends of Sci-Fi."

  9. The song "Somewhere in the Night," which appeared in the Quantum Leap (1989) episode Quantum Leap: Piano Man - November 10, 1985 (1991), was sung by Bakula and can be found in a CD single format.
  10. His 1988 Tony Award nomination was as Best Actor (Musical) for "Romance/Romance," written by Barry Harman. The winner in that category that year was Michael Crawford for "Phantom of the Opera." Scott was not the producers' first choice for the role but was chosen after Armand Assante turned it down. When Scott left "Romance/Romance" to do Quantum Leap (1989), he was replaced by Barry Williams for the remainder of the show's Broadway run.

It is also possible, since a lot of Croats have lived in the Czech Republic for centuries, that Scott's ancestors are among them.
  17. Best remembered by the public for his starring role as Doctor Sam Beckett on Quantum Leap (1989) and as Captain Jonathan Archer on Star Trek: Enterprise (2001).
