Camilla Scott Show
Scott's first starring role was the lead in Evita at the Limelight Dinner Theatre, a role she landed before she turned 25. Because her agent insisted that her name be billed above the title of the musical in all advertising, "suddenly people thought I was a star", she said.
She appeared on the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, in 1990, portraying Melissa Anderson. The casting director was looking for a young actress who could sing. Caught off guard by a request to "sing something," Scott started singing the last song she'd heard on her car radio: Whitney Houston's "Greatest Love of All". The casting agent stopped her, saying, "You really can sing." After meeting with the producer, she was hired and began filming the next day. She remained on the series for two years.
Scott hosted The Camilla Scott Show on the Baton Broadcast System (and later the CTV television network), a daytime talk show, from 1996 to 1998. The show received a poor critical reception; the Globe and Mail wrote "What could be less fun than licking a metal pole on a January morning with a crazed Shitzu scrabbling up your pant leg? According to the mostly male TV critics of middling years who write for the papers, the answer is Camilla Scott."
Concurrent with her talk show work, she had a recurring role in the TV series Due South as Inspector Margaret "Meg" Thatcher of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police from 1995 through 1999. She credited this role for helping her receive an award for community safety from her cellphone company. In 1996, she witnessed a mugging and called 911, giving a description of the mugger and his car that led to an arrest and recovery of the stolen goods. "Maybe my role as an RCMP officer on Due South gave me the practice I needed to help in a real situation," she said.
In 2002, Scott had a voice role as Mama Bear in a television adaptation of the Berenstain Bears.
Scott has performed in several Toronto musical theatre productions.
Scott appeared as the lead in the Toronto production of Mamma Mia! after Louise Pitre departed on tour. She continued in the role for three years.
She starred as Khashoggi, a role that to that point had always been played by a man, in the Dora Award–winning Toronto production of the Queen musical We Will Rock You. She took the role in October 2008, and remained with the show until it closed on June 28, 2009.
As her acting career wound down, Scott joined up with Arbonne, a multi-level marketing company centered on health and wellness.
Scott married actor Paul Eves in 2002. They have a son named Jack, born in 2005.
