At the tender age of 9, young Scott decided that he wanted to be an actor. His hard-working immigrant parents were faced with a difficult choice: should they help their child achieve potentially unachievable dreams or encourage him to work towards a more reliable career?

Fortunately for Scott, his parents decided to help the young child achieve his dreams. They began taking him to auditions for commercials and bit parts in television series. In 1976, Scott was able to break free of commercials and land his first major starring role in Bugsy Malone.

In 2007, Scott became a father for the first time and also married his girlfriend, Renee Sloan. Scott and Renee became parents to Bailey, and Scott became a proud stepfather to Sloan’s daughter, Kalyn.

These happy events were marred by the allegations that came in 2018 from former costar Nicole Eggert. Eggert asserts that Baio molested her and had sexual relations with her while she was underage during the shooting of Charles in Charge. Baio denied all these claims.

In 2018, Eggert and Baio’s costar, Alexander Polinsky, accused Baio of sexual harassment and physical assault that Polinsky alleges occurred during the filming of the show. Baio denied these allegations as well.


After starring in Bugsy Malone with Jodie Foster, Scott would later go on to star with Foster in the 1980 movie, Foxes. But it was his luck at being cast on Happy Days that would make Scott Baio a well-known heartthrob throughout America. At the age of 16, Baio was cast as Chachi Arcola, cousin of The Fonz.

A spin-off, Joanie Loves Chachi, was made in 1982, but only lasted for 17 episodes.
