She has a sister, Vanessa Johansson, who is also an actress, a brother, Adrian, a twin brother, Hunter Johansson, born three minutes after her, and a paternal half-brother, Christian. Scarlett showed a passion for acting at a young age and starred in many plays. She began her acting career starring as Laura Nelson in the comedy film L'irrésistible North (1994). The acclaimed drama film L'homme qui murmurait à l'oreille des chevaux (1998) brought Johansson critical praise and worldwide recognition.
