Scarlett was a woman who resided in a house in Tortuga during the Age of Piracy. She and Giselle were believed to be prostitutes. Scarlett had bright red hair and was typically seen wearing a red dress with an excessive amount of blush on her face.
- "Scarlett! [Scarlett slaps Jack] Not sure if I deserved that."
- ―Jack Sparrow before and after Scarlett slaps him.
Scarlett had a history with Jack Sparrow, but developed animosity towards him that manifested itself in a slap to the face upon seeing Jack again in Tortuga. Jack commented that he hadn't deserved the slap, though one from Giselle moments later was, as he believed, more justified.Despite the divide between them, Scarlett and Giselle were often seen in each others' company in Tortuga, and were both approached by William Turner a year later, during the latter's search for Sparrow, though Scarlett claimed Jack had not been seen for over a month.
Jack was ultimately reunited with Scarlett following his rescue from Davy Jones' Locker and end of the Battle of Calypso's maelstrom, and was again greeted with a slap after admitting he loved neither Scarlett nor Giselle. Joshamee Gibbs departed with Scarlett and Giselle as Jack set off on his quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Her further fate is unknown.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "We wants the redhead!"
- ―Drunk pirates on the "Redhead"
- Scarlett was portrayed by Lauren Maher in The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest, At World's End, and Wedlocked. Nika Futterman provided the voice in The Legend of Jack Sparrow.
- Scarlett was based on the redheaded wench in the Auction scene of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, commonly referred to as the "Redhead". When she was adapted into the Pirates films, the character was given the name "Scarlett" because of her red hair.
- Scarlett, along with Giselle, was originally supposed to just have an unspeaking part in The Curse of the Black Pearl. However, someone noticed that both Lauren Maher and Vanessa Branch were quite capable actresses, so Scarlett and Giselle ended up having speaking parts in the film and its sequels.
- In the Dead Man's Chest junior novelization, Scarlett is actually the wench who slaps Will Turner at Tortuga as Giselle is absent.
- In the original script draft for Wedlocked, Giselle was to question Scarlett's status as a natural redhead by saying "The carpet doesn't match the drapes, if you know what I mean". However, that line was cut because it was deemed too racy.
