Who is Scarlett Harlett?

Although Scarlett Harlett says they are a “beautiful woman with movie star looks”, they revealed they’re the opposite when they open their mouth…

The Drag Race star began drag 7 years ago, so has a lot of experience up their sleeve. They have appeared as an extra in some very famous movies, such as Rocketman and Absolutely Fabulous!

Now they have revealed their excellent acting experience, RuPaul’s drag race UK’s audience is going to have some high expectations for Scarlett Harlett in the acting challenges…

They also describe themselves with the 3 C’s: cheeky, classic, and common!

Scarlett Harlett’s reason for competing in RuPaul’s Drag Race is to show people from the Isle of Dogs that anything is possible, and if they can get out of the working class lifestyle then so can anyone!

They have explained that they didn’t grow up with much, and have worked extremely hard to end up in the position they’re in today.

This Queen believes they are different from any other East End Queen’s who have appeared on Drag Race before, as Scarlett Harlett is real and stays true to her East London self, by being down to earth and having a laugh.

As much as some contestants will try to study the show before they enter, Scarlett Harlett reveals that you cannot ‘crack the code’ of Drag Race.

They believe you can only see how the show works and what RuPaul likes, and go with that.
