THE BLACK DAHLIA

With more than a decade of work under her belt, four-time Golden Globe nominee and BAFTA winner SCARLETT JOHANSSON (Kay Lake) has proven to be one of Hollywood's most talented young actresses. Johansson received rave reviews and a Best Actress award at the Venice Film Festival for her starring role opposite Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, the critically acclaimed second film by director Sofia Coppola.

Johansson portrayed the title character in Girl with a Pearl Earring, a film adapted from the novel of the same name about the painter Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth).

She may currently be seen in the new Woody Allen film Scoop, opposite Hugh Jackman. Following Scoop she will be seen in The Prestige, for director Christopher Nolan and opposite Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, on October 27, 2006. She just finished shooting the lead role in The Nanny Diaries, based on the highly successful book of the same name. Johansson's latest project, The Other Boleyn Girl, begins production in September, opposite Natalie Portman and Eric Bana.

At the age of 14, Johansson attained worldwide recognition for her performance as Grace MacLean, the teen traumatized by a riding accident in Robert Redford's The Horse Whisperer. She went on to star in Terry Zwigoff's Ghost World, garnering a Best Supporting Actress Award from the Toronto Film Critics Circle. Johansson was also featured in the Coen brothers' dark drama The Man Who Wasn't There, opposite Billy Bob Thornton and Frances McDormand. Her other film credits include the critically acclaimed Weitz brothers' film In Good Company, as well as opposite John Travolta in A Love Song for Bobby Long, which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination (her third in two years). Recently she was seen in Woody Allen's Match Point, which garnered her fourth consecutive Golden Globe nomination in three years, and opposite Ewan McGregor in The Island, for director Michael Bay.

Her additional credits include Rob Reiner's comedy North; the thriller Just Cause, with Sean Connery and Laurence Fishburne; and a breakthrough role in the critically praised Manny & Lo, which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead.

A New York native, Johansson made her professional acting debut at the age of eight in the off-Broadway production of Sophistry, with Ethan Hawke, at New York's Playwright's Horizons.

Johansson currently divides her time between New York and Los Angeles.
