Scotty Leavenworth was born on May 21, 1990 in Riverside, California. At the age of four, he decided he "wanted to do what his sisters did", so he got into acting. He started out how most actors and actresses start out, doing commercials. Right away, he learned he loved it and decided to keep doing it. Before the age of 9, he was in such movies as The Green Mile (1999), starring Tom Hanks, Come On, Get Happy: The Partridge Family Story (1999), Baby Geniuses (1999), Babe: Pig in the City (1998), The Soul Collector (1999) starring Melissa Gilbert, and Life as a House (2001) starring Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas and Hayden Christensen. After that, he landed a lead in the hit box office movie, Erin Brockovich (2000), starring Julia Roberts.

After that, he switched modes from movies to television, starring in such shows as Unsolved Mysteries (1987), Dads (1986) (pilot), Meego (1997), The Young and the Restless (1973), Any Day Now (1998), "The Nikki Show", "Everybody Loves Raymond", "ER", "Citizen Banes"(pilot), "Philly" starring Kim Delaney, and what Scotty is best known for, "7th Heaven".

He is now in the process of filming a movie he stars in called Slow Moe (2010), with AJ Michalka and Marc John Jefferies. It is supposed to be out around the end of summer 2005!

Scotty still is pursuing his career as he finishes his freshman year of high school. But, when he isn't working, he resides in his Californian home with his family. Scotty enjoys spending time with his close-knit family and friends. Whether it's playing "Ruthie Camden"'s boyfriend on 7th Heaven (1996) or playing his Gibson SG with his friends at home, Scotty is always doing what he has a large passion for.
