If you want to use python as a shell-glue you can try using system.
>>> from os import system
>>> def <function_name>([parms])
>>> .... blah blah
>>> .... rc = system("<your_script_name")
When you call function_name within the python interpreter
your_script_name will be called using system.
OTOH, if you are wanting to run a python script within the interpreter
then just import the names you want from your_script.py file and then
call the name... like main, forinstance.
>>> from my_script import main
Within your_script.py define a main function:
OTOH, just write the script.py file (top down procedural) and then
>>> import my_script.py
