Scott Leo "Taye" Diggs is an American theatre, film and television actor. He is perhaps best known for his roles in the Broadway musical Rent, the motion picture How Stella Got Her Groove Back, and the television series Private Practice. His nickname - Taye comes from the playful pronunciation of Scotty as "Scottay".
Born January 2, 1971, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Metal Dog. With the Metal Dog we have an irresistible force and an immovable object. He is not afraid to "deal with" whatever gets in his way, and he won't be gentle about it. He tends to be very principled and determined and doesn't look kindly on those deemed unpatriotic or disloyal. We definitely want him on our side in a fight.
