Andrew Scott Doesn't Have Many Fond Memories From His Time On Band Of Brothers
Andrew Scott’s role as Private John "Cowboy" Hall in the 10-episode World War II miniseries "Band of Brothers" was small, but Scott made the most of his single-episode appearance. However, Scott’s memories of shooting the episode were far from pleasant.
Scott reflected, “I didn't love playing a soldier. [...] The processes of some of the people involved were different to mine. I didn't think it was necessary to be in character all the time. There was an atmosphere that wasn't set up by anyone in particular that was just different to my own. [...] But yeah, I just guess I'm not really that into weapons."
Coincidentally, many of Scott’s earlier roles were connected to the setting of World War II — for instance, he played a soldier in "Saving Private Ryan" and a sniper in the documentary "Killing Hitler." Now, Scott’s managed to get more memorable roles like in "Sherlock" and "Fleabag" that have pulled him far away from the battlefield.
