ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Scott Schofield is an award-winning actor, writer, and producer—a “trans influencer of Hollywood.” Making television history as the first openly transgender actor in Daytime television with a recurring role on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, Schofield then became the first transgender man nominated for any acting Emmy, for the recurring role of “Max” on STUDIO CITY (Amazon Prime).
