Hook viewers are probably the only ones who would have little or no problem remembering the name Amber Scott. The American actress may have grown into a beautiful woman but her legacies as an innocent pretty girl in the 1991 American fantasy adventure film still keep many people curious about her.
Written by James V. Hart and Malia Scotch Marmo and directed by Steven Spielberg, Hook is Scott’s only movie credit – at least for now. She portrayed the fictional character Maggie Banning, who is the younger daughter of Robin Williams (Peter Banning), a middle-aged lawyer.
She is known to have melted so many hearts with her innocent looks in the movie which was a childhood favorite for many people. It’s been over two decades since Hook was released and Scott seems to have made no other gallant appearance in television series or films except the voice work she did on The American Experience, at 1995 documentary and then singing the song When You’re Alone live at the 64th Academy Awards. When You’re Alone was actually Hook’s Oscar-nominated song.

What Is The Actress Up To Now?
Unlike most of Hook’s child stars who became a regular face on the television, Amber Scott took a long break from acting after scoring her first acting role. According to several sites and information available online, Hook was Scott’s first and only major project in the movie industry. She has never been involved in any role or work in Hollywood and has never been spotted on stage or in front of the camera like most of her peers.
Though we have no clue why the talented actress decided to leave the Hollywood scene till this time, we believe she’s probably working on something else that still puts money in her pocket.
Truth is, we can’t tell what she’s really into at the moment but like most people who had a swell time watching her in Hook, we are earnestly hoping for her to return to the movie industry because we can’t afford to lose her to any other field of interest.
