Sadly this is about all I could find. If anyone has anything to add please let me know.


I created this journal to give other fans a chance to share discuss and posts videos and pics of Scott Plank. I was very disheartened to find that searches for info and pics of the late actor are practically non existent. I know i'm not the only one who was sad to learn that he's practically faded away and he was too talented to just be fogotten. So even if I end up all alone on this journal i'll feel better knowing someone made the effort for such a sweet soul gone too soon. I'll be posting screen caps and links as soon as I can and welcome anyone who loved the actor the way I did to submit whatever they may have or just discuss the actor. I've also been working on fixing the many errors on his IMDB page and will try to list a more accurate tv and filmography here. It's been eight years since his sudden death so this journal may not find anyone who has already searched and come up empty but I will make the best of it anyway.
