Bold and the Beautiful's "Liam" would be cast to Scott in 2010. When Scott first auditioned for the part he had no idea what character he would be playing. In fact, he would not find out his character's name and backstory until the first day of filming!

Despite not really knowing what he had signed up for, producers knew he was perfect for the role, and Scott Clifton excelled in the part of business tycoon "Bill Spencer Jr's" long-lost son. In fact, Clifton now has three Daytime Emmy Awards to prove it!
