Scott Steward Bakula was born in St. Louis, Missouri, oldest son to Steward and Sally Bakula. He went to Kirkwood High School where he already did some theater acting and played/sang in bands.

After graduating in 1973, he began to study law at the University of Kansas - his father and brother are both lawyers - but broke up after a year and worked at the theater in St. Louis until he went to New York to become an actor in 1976.

Within three days, he had his first job, a role in Shenandoah, and later starred in many other theater plays like Romance/Romance, Three Guys Naked From The Waist Down and Marilyn: An American Fable, which was his first Broadway production.

In the 1980s, Bakula made an attempt at television. His first TV appearances were two commercials for Folgers Coffee and Canada Dry whiskey. His first real role was the movie I-Man. He also starred in the two short-lived series Gung Ho! and Eisenhower & Lutz.

Bakula's real breakthrough, though, was Quantum Leap, which, among countless nominations, won him a Golden Globe Award in 1991.

After that, he starred in a number of films like Major Leage III, Lord of Illusions and the short-lived series Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Currently, he portrays Captain Jonathan Archer in the fifth Star Trek series Enterprise.
