Thora Janette Scott (born 14 December 1938) is an English actress.
She was born in Morecambe, Lancashire. She is the daughter of actors Jimmy Scott and Thora Hird. She started her acting career as a child actress known as Janette Scott, and was briefly (along with Jennifer Gay) one of the so-called "Children's Announcers" providing continuity links for the BBC's children's TV programmes from the Lime Grove Studios in the early 1950s. She became a popular leading lady, one of her best-known roles being April Smith in the 1960 film School for Scoundrels, based on the "One-upmanship" books by Stephen Potter, in which Ian Carmichael and Terry-Thomas competed for her attention.
She is best known to American audiences for her role as the parson's wife in the 1959 film The Devil's Disciple starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas and Laurence Olivier.
She was referenced by name in the song "Science Fiction/Double Feature" (from the 1973 play The Rocky Horror Show) refers to her 1962 role in The Day of the Triffids, at the lyric: "And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott fight a triffid that spits poison and kills..."
Scott wrote her autobiography, Act One, at the age of 14.
She has been married three times:
- Jackie Rae (27 June 1959 – 1965), divorced
- Mel Tormé (20 May 1966 – 1977), divorced; 2 children, including son James Tormé
- William Rademaekers (since 1981)
