Sir Ridley Scott was born Ridley Scott on November 30, 1937 in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, England. He is a English director and producer. Known for his obession for great detail and his visual styles. His brother - Tony Scott is a acclaimed director. His son's Jake and Luke Scott are both acclaimed commercial directors aswell as Jordan Scott, his daughter. He is sometimes considered the "Father" of Director's Cut.
Born in South Shields, in Tyne and Wear, England, Scott grew up in an Army family, meaning that for most of his early life his father — an officer in the Royal Engineers — was absent. Ridley's older brother, Frank, joined the Merchant Navy when he was still young and the pair had little contact. During this time the family moved around, living in (amongst other areas) Cumbria, Wales and Germany. After the Second World War the Scott family moved back to their native north-east England, eventually settling in Teesside (whose industrial landscape would later inspire similar scenes in Blade Runner). He enjoyed watching films, and his favourites include Lawrence of Arabia, Citizen Kane and Seven Samurai. Scott studied in Teesside from 1954 to 1958, at Grangefield Grammar School and later in West Hartlepool College of Art, graduating with a Diploma in Design. He progressed to an M.A. in graphic design at the Royal College of Art from 1960 to 1962. (More...)
