Joshua “Josh” Scott is an English business owner and private tutor. He is best known as the older brother of actress Naomi Scott. A native of London, Josh grew up in a multi-ethnic family in the north-east part of the city. Both of his parents serve as pastors at the Bridge Church, Woodford in Redbridge. Not much is known about his education. Like his sister, he has taken part in missionary and outreach work. In 2017, he launched the private tutoring service, JS Tutoring, which has significantly grown since then. While his sister is widely considered as one of the most promising young movie stars of today and is constantly under the spotlight, Josh prefers to lead his life in relative privacy. He is modestly active on social media. His Instagram account is set to private, and while he is active on Facebook, he mostly uses the platform to promote his business.
Family & Personal Life
Josh Scott was born in London, England, to Usha (née Joshi) and Christopher Scott. His mother is of Indian Gujarati ancestry. She is originally from Uganda and immigrated to the United Kingdom with her family when she was quite young. Christopher Scott is an English native. They both are the lead pastors at the Bridge Church, Woodford in Redbridge, North East London. Their vision statement simply reads, “Reach, Restore, Release”: To reach people with the good news that God loves them; to bring restoration to the body, soul and spirit through a vibrant relationship with God; and to release every person into a full life in God, fulfilling their divine purpose and destiny.
Naomi, who was born on May 6, 1993, is younger than Josh. She has spoken about their childhood in a 2019 interview with W. According to her, their parents were far from stereotypic pastor parents. They were not as strict and let their children figure out their faith on their own. Having begun her career as a singer with the Bridge Church Youth Band, Naomi has established herself as one of the most prolific up-and-coming movie stars of today. She has portrayed Kimberly "Kim" Hart / Pink Ranger in the 2017 cinematic adaptation of ‘Power Rangers’ and Princess Jasmine in the 2019 Disney live-action musical fantasy film ‘Aladdin’. She is set to play Elena Houghlin in the upcoming film ‘Charlie’s Angels’.
In April 2017, Josh married Shona McKay. Naomi attended the wedding and posted pictures of the happy couple on her social media profiles. Josh is the brother-in-law of football player Jordan Spence through Naomi.
