THE PRESTIGE

With more than a decade of work under her belt, four-time Golden Globe® nominee and BAFTA winner SCARLETT JOHANSSON (Olivia) 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 also portrayed the title character in the muchadmired "Girl With a Pearl Earring,” a film adapted from the novel of the same name about the painter Johannes Vermeer (Colin Firth).

Earlier this year, Johansson was seen in Woody Allen's "Scoop,” opposite Hugh Jackman, and the Brian DePalma film "The Black Dahlia.” She also recently finished shooting the lead role in "The Nanny Diaries,” based on the highly successful book of the same name.

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 "A Love Song for Bobby Long,” opposite John Travolta, 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 a fourth consecutive Golden Globe® nomination in three years, and in "The Island” opposite Ewan McGregor 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. 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.
