Scott '"Scotty" Banning is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Erick Petersen from 1978-80, Dick Billingsley from 1981-83, and recently Rick Hearst from 1989-90.


Scotty Banning is the son of David Banning and Trish Clayton (Banning), and grandson to Julie Olson. Scotty, now called Scott, returned to Salem in 1989. Scott claimed that he owned the land that Wings was on and he forced Nick into giving him a job at the club. He soon met and fell in love with Faith Taylor, who had an exceptional signing voice. Scott became her manager and he got her a job singing at Wings. In 1990 a vicious storm hit Salem and left Faith paralyzed. Eve Donovan, who was in love with Faith's current boyfriend Scott, plotted to keep the two of them apart. Eve brought Scott's shadowy record producing scams and secrets to Faith's attention in hopes that it would cause problems. Eve's plan failed miserable. Faith walked again and when Scott was accepted to medical school, Faith and Scott left Salem.

In 2017 he calls his grandmother with the news that his father has been killed in a motorcycle accident.
