Cynthia Dale Scott is an actress best known for portraying her first film role as Dietrich in Aliens, for which she began to receive recognition.
After receiving a degree in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design, Cynthia joined a theatre/dance company which later fell apart. She moved to London and became involved in the post-punk indie music scene, before getting an Equity card to work in the British entertainment industry and supplement her music work. Aliens was her big break, and its success led her back to the US. Sadly, her filmography after Aliens only contains an episode of 1987 TV series Mr Belvedere, Invasion Earth: The Aliens Are Here (1988) and Rush (1991).
Scott along with fellow Aliens co-stars Jenette Goldstein, William Hope and Ricco Ross have recently signed the online petition that was started by fans to ask for female characters to be playable in the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines.
