Scott Brick

Scott Brick

Audiobook Narrator

Actor, screenwriter and audiobook narrator, Scott Brick definitely gives new meaning to a hyphenate career with credits in film, television, stage and radio.Born on January 30, 1966 in Santa Barbara, California, Brick studied both acting and writing at UCLA, and joined the ranks of working professionals upon leaving school in 1989. He then spent ten years with the LA-based Will and Company, a traveling Shakespearean company which performed for schools throughout California, in addition to acting in such roles as Cyrano, Hamlet and Macbeth at various playhouses around the country.Brick went on to become a freelance writer and published articles in magazines such as WIZARD, CREATIVE SCREENWRITING and TOYFARE.In 2000, he was hired by Morgan Freeman and Revelations Entertainment to adapt Arthur C. Clarke's classic science-fiction RENDEZVOUS WITH RAMA for the big screen.Also in 2000, Brick ventured into narrating audiobooks and quickly found himself embraced by the audio world. To date he's won over 50 Earphones Awards for his narrating skills, as well as two Audie Awards for his work on the DUNE saga. After recording 250 titles in his first five years, AUDIOFILE MAGAZINE named Brick “one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy,” and proclaimed him a Golden Voice, but it was the WALL STREET JOURNAL that sealed the moniker with a front-page article in November, 2004. Having now recorded almost 700 titles, including such classics as MYSTIC RIVER, FAHRENHEIT 451, IN COLD BLOOD and HELTER SKELTER, Brick has no intention of slowing down. He obviously won't be happy until he's recorded every book ever published.Most recently, he collaborated with famed sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card to adapt a collection of Card's short stories for the stage, which resulted in the play POSING AS PEOPLE. Brick also completed the production draft of RAMA, set to be directed by David Fincher (SEVEN, ZODIAC).Brick just completed his first novel, a modern-day supernatural thriller based on an 18th-century murder in New England.
