Andrew Scott’s mum Nora dies following a sudden ILLNESS


Andrew Scott’s mum Nora has died following a ‘sudden illness’ – just days before Mother’s Day

The family announced the sad news on Saturday, adding that Nora passed away on Thursday March 7 surrounded by her family in St Vincent’s Hospital, Dublin.


An obituary reads: ‘It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the passing of Nora Scott (née Boyle), beloved wife of Jim, mother of Sarah, Andrew and Hannah.

‘Scott, Sandymount, Dublin, formerly Omagh Co. Tyrone, March 7th 2024 peacefully surrounded by her loving family and best friend Anne, in St Vincent’s Hospital following a sudden illness.

‘Nora will be deeply missed by her beloved husband Jim, her loving children Sarah, Andrew and Hannah.’

In 2018, Nora revealed Anthony Hopkins sent her ‘more than three dozen red roses,’ after finding out she was ill when speaking to Andrew on the set of King Lear. 

Anthony, 86, starred in the BBC‘s Shakespeare adaptation as an ‘English Stalin’ with Andrew playing Edgar – who becomes Lear’s secret protector. 

She told RTE’s Ryan Tubridy at the time: ‘There was probably more than three dozen red roses and attached to them was a little card from Anthony saying “Be well, sending hugs”, and all sorts of things.’

‘I was thrilled to get such a gift and for the kind thought that promoted it.

‘Now I have recovered, I can enjoy these exquisite roses that grace our hall. It was such a beautiful gift.’

She defended the actor amid reports Anthony had not spoken to his daughter Abigail – his only child – for two decades. 

It was said he ‘didn’t care’ about the family split, admitting that he was ‘cold’ about his daughter, who uses the name Abigail Harrison.
