New York, Nov 7 : He might have played indomitable roles in movies, but when it came to love scenes, they made late actor George C. Scott nervous, his biography has revealed.
In the new book titled 'The Volatile Life and Career of George C. Scott' by author David Sheward, co-star Susannah York revealed about Scott's discomfort during a love scene in their film 'Jane Eyre'
"We were doing a love scene and he was being rather avuncular, paternal, and I said to him, 'No, no, George. You are my one true love and I am yours," the New York Post quoted her, as telling the author.
"Don't be paternal. Don't act like my father' . . . I would tease him a bit.
"But he didn't seem to be a person who would take very much teasing," she added.
The American actor, who died in 1999, is best known for his role as George S. Patton Jr. in the film Patton, which also won him an Academy Award for Best actor.
