Handsome and charming Scott Speedman is known for his role in the 1998 drama series Felicity and his groundbreaking film – the gothic horror thriller – Underworld, in which he played the role of Michael Corvin. Scott Speedman, who is of British-Canadian descent, is said to have been interested in becoming a professional swimmer and was even a member of the Canadian junior swimming team that competed in the 1992 Olympic tournament, where he finished 9th. Later, he suffered a serious neck injury that marked the end of his sporting career in swimming, and he had to switch to acting.
Speedman’s first attempt to get a role was in the movie Batman Forever, in which he aspired to the role of Robin, but he lost to Chris O’Donnell but managed to get other TV and movie roles. He made his film debut in the Canadian series Net Worth, and in 1998 he starred in the successful drama series Felicity, in which he played the role of college student Ben Covington, attracting the attention of many filmmakers, and soon Scott appeared in several other films.
In 2000 he appeared in the film Duet alongside Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow. He also appeared in the film Dark Blue as an inexperienced LAPD investigator, in the film My Life Without Me in 2003, and in many other interesting films.
Scott undoubtedly enjoys a flourishing career as an actor and does not regret his change of profession. He is currently even starring in the series Animal Kingdom and has made an appearance in the sitcom Grey’s Anatomy this year.
Scott Speedman’s Wife, Girlfriend
Scott Speedman is the perfect definition of a female man, as they can’t seem to get enough of him, despite his long list of failed relationships, and to this day he has not walked down the aisle with any woman. His notorious relationship lifestyle is by no means a secret, so below is a list of his girlfriends.
His first recorded relationship was with Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow, with whom he dated from 1998 to 1999. The next relationship was with Keri Russell, with whom he played the lead role in the drama series Felicity, which the couple has been working on since 1999. Their relationship was much talked about as they were co-stars in the successful drama series, but their fairy-tale relationship ended in 2001 for reasons that have not been revealed, but in a recent interview sometime this year Scott admitted that he was not a good friend of Keri when they were together.
He was with actress Ashley Scott, which was also a short relationship that lasted from 2007 to 2008. In 2011 he started another relationship with the Australian actress and model Teresa Palmer, which also lasted only one year. His other girlfriends include Camille De Pazzis, with whom he dated from 2012 to 2014, and later Heather Graham.
Sources currently assume that he is in a relationship with Kirsten Wigg, which he has had since 2014. Kirsten, who, like his former partners, is also an actress, is famous for Saturday Night Live between 2005-2012 and the role of Annie Walker in the 2011 film Bridesmaids.
Being an actor puts you in a position where you would get any role in a movie, even if it has to be a straight guy playing the role of a gay guy. Scott Speedman had to play the role of Tom in the drama “24th Day”, a man who meets another man (James Marsden) in a bar and later makes out with him in his house.
Scott Speedman, the notorious womanizer, is far from being gay, so the only gay rumors that can be traced back to him are related to his work.
