DBT0260: Scott Takeda (Actor)
Scott Takeda is a TV and film actor, a self-described “banana” — yellow on the outside, white on the inside. Scott says,
“I thrive on TV/Film roles where things can turn from serious to funny or from pensive to awkward. For me, balancing an emotional tightrope of twists and turns is not just a matter of good acting or “being in the moment” – it’s almost second nature.
“You see, I grew up in an Asian American household where juggling cultures helped me keep my sanity.”
Known for his role as Dr. Lee on “Days of Our Lives,” Scott Takeda also portrayed Dr. Loh in “The Space Between Us.”
Takeda previously had a supporting role as Ed Faber in “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” opposite Tina Fey and Margot Robbie from Paramount.
And, coming soon, Takeda can be seen in the indie feature The Tale starring Laura Dern and Jason Ritter.
Scott has worked with some of the biggest names in the business, and has been in over 30 roles.
Takeda also writes and directs small films, and seems to love that.
We hope he will get lots more chances to act and direct…Scott is very down to earth and very likable, honest and direct.

We hope you will enjoy this interview.
“There are not many Asian American male actors in Hollywood with lead potential, but Scott Takeda fits the bill. The way he brings comedic flair to dramatic roles is remarkable. We are seeing great things from Scott, and I’m proud to represent him.”
– Linda McAlister, Agent
