Scarlett was born in New York City and raised in The Bronx. She has a twin brother, whom she is three minutes older than. Breaking into show business was more accessible while growing up in New York. Scarlett’s mother began taking her to auditions at a young age and her professional acting debut came at age 8 in an off-Broadway production. It was shortly after this where she made her film debut in The movie North (1994).
