Scarlet Elisabeth Sheppard grew up in Parkersburg, West Virginia: a cozy small town on the Ohio River. After training as a ballet dancer for many years, and at the height of a serious awkward phase, she somehow nabbed the lead in a school play (opposite that boy in the photo!) It was an "a-ha moment." She hung up her pointe shoes and promptly became the biggest drama club nerd to ever exist.
Scarlet went on to appear in Our Town (Emily,) Romeo and Juliet (Juliet,) All My Sons (Ann) and, most recently, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice (Little Voice.) After graduating with honors from the School of Performing Arts at Columbia College Chicago, she made the big move to Los Angeles and hit the ground running. Here, she's appeared in various viral videos from Buzzfeed, Totally TV and more. She's also the creator of Karmic: a female-centric web series comedy now available on YouTube! As of August 2018, Scarlet been cast alongside Elaine Hendrix in a new pilot titled (Sorta) Supportive. The show follows a support group for chronic and terminally ill teenagers.
When she's not shooting or auditioning, Scarlet spends her time video editing, dancing to
embarrassing fantastic music and eating all of the hors d'ouvres at your classy event.
