Age and Early Life
Scott Bakula came from a humble beginning before stardom. He was born and raised in his hometown, St. Louise, Missouri, on October 9, 1954 (67 years old). He is the son of Sally and Joseph Stewart Bakula. Not much is known about Scott’s parent’s work other than his dad was a lawyer. His education journey was also limited, only showing that he attended Jefferson College in his hometown and later moved to the University of Kansas, but only for the time being.
He never wanted to leave, but under certain circumstances, he was forced to. Scott was about to go on a tour about Godspell, which was a great idea for his parents to get the school thing out of his system for a while and maybe refresh his mind on coming back.
However, things did not go according to plan; the tour did not resume, and he eventually fell apart, felt lost and confused about school. Until suddenly, in his confusion, he realized that he just needed to start a new life in a new city, New York precisely.
Scott moved to New York in 1976. He was ready to commence a new chapter in life and spring his acting career as well. It was not films and television shows with Bakula at the start.

You can tell that Scott already had the talent to perform multiple roles in multiple shows.
After his Broadway shows, Scott took it to the next level, and to his success, he landed television roles that paved his way to stardom. Scott was popularly known as Dr. Sam Beckett, a time traveler who was accidentally sent back to time to correct the wrongdoings of the past. The show was called Quantum Leap, which aired from 1989 – 1993. His performance in the front was stellar, and he earned a Golden Globe Award (and nominations), Emmy Awards, and even in Viewers for Quality Television, all in the field of Best Actor.
His success in Quantum Leap gave him the impression that he fits in the science fiction genre of films. He was later cast for another science fiction television series. But this is no ordinary show; instead, he was cast as Jonathan Archer, the first captain of earth’s interstellar ship in Star Trek: Enterprise. Yet again, his performance in the show handed him several nominations for being the best actor in the series.
