Colonel Edmund Starling
Scott Christianson got his acting career started when he moved to Lincoln City 7 years ago. He tried out for The Odd Couple and was awarded his first role as one of the poker playing friends of Felix and Oscar. He soon began helping with the Tour To Die For – the graveyard tour and just before the pandemic he was given his greatest role: The actor playing George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life – Radio production.
This is the first time Scott has participated in a production since then, as working at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital as a Supervising Nurse, buying his dream property in Neotsu, and having his first grandchild, Amaya, has been taking up most of his free time. It was suggested he try out for this play and he decided it was time to bring back what had been a big joy in his life – acting and he looks forward to entertaining you in this production.
