Ellison called Scott “a stunning soul and talent” in a tweet on Monday.

“Rest in peace Tracy Scott. A stunning soul and talent, my prayers are with her family & loved ones. You are missed,” she wrote.

Scott served as a script supervisor on dozens of films, including “Whiplash,” “Veronica Mars,” “The Gambler,” “Black Mass,” “Concussion,” “Garden State,” “The Proposal” and “Up in the Air.” She also worked on the TV series “Deadwood,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “True Blood,” “Wilfred” and “Happy Endings.”

  1. Michael, prayers with you and your whole family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Taken just way too young. <3 :( From a fellow scripty, Sherri Olson

  2. Michael Scott says:

    I’m her brother Michael, she was born in Charleston, South Carolina while our father was stationed there in the Navy. Then they went back home to Oregon, Ohio (spitting distance from Toledo) when she was 9 months old and raised there (and lived there) until moving to Tennessee for film school and California to work in film in 1999.

    She also did not make it to Mexico, the triple negative breast cancer which we thought we had beat after chemo, 2 surgeries, and radiation led to spots on her liver after her first check up after getting the clean bill of health.

    As soon as she had the biopsy which they diagnosed her with stage 4 liver cancer.

  3. Lauren Sweeny says:

    I knew Tracy and her beloved dog Finn. Her gentle soul touched many hearts. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
