Fab40: Scout Smith


While many might think you have to live in New York or LA to make acting a full-time gig, that’s not the case for the fabulous Scout Smith. Her love for the arts began on the stage where she has starred in countless roles at Hale Center Theater both in Orem and in Sandy. In addition to billboards and commercials, Scout has also played roles in TV shows including “Yellowstone” and “High School Musical: The Musical the Series,” as well as many films. (Watch for her in “Joe Bell,” starring Mark Wahlberg). Scout is hosting the second season of “Hello Sunday” on BYUtv. Tune in every Sunday morning or stream it anytime on the BYUtv app. Sidenote: You may also see her face in the marketing  campaign for Utah Community Credit Union.
