Scarlett Noel Pomers (born 28 November 1988; age 25) is an American actress and singer who has worked in television, film, and theater. She is most recognized by Star Trek fans for her three years on Star Trek: Voyager as Naomi Wildman from 1998 through 2001. Her other most famous acting role was that of Kyra Hart in the hit TV sitcom Reba.
She has also made guest appearances on such television series as Touched by an Angel (in an episode which also guest-starred Brian Keith and Ray Buktenica) and Diagnosis Murder (in an episode also guest-starring Richard Riehle and Leon Russom).
She was featured in the 2000 made-for-TV movie Geppetto, which starred Trek regulars Brent Spiner and Rene Auberjonois. Her feature film credits include The Baby-Sitters Club (1995, with Bruce Davison and Harris Yulin), Mighty Joe Young (1998, with Lawrence Pressman and Richard Riehle), Happy, Texas (1999, with Ron Perlman, Paul Dooley), and Erin Brockovich (2000, with William Lucking). She also lent her voice to the role of baby Carrie in the 1999 film Baby Geniuses, starring Christopher Lloyd and Kim Cattrall.
Late in 2005, Pomers entered a rehabilitation clinic in an effort to combat her anorexia. She was released in January 2006, and went public with her problem shortly thereafter. She later rejoined the cast of Reba, which was picked up for thirteen episodes as a mid-season replacement series for the new CW network, ending its run in 2007.
To date, Scarlett is concentrating on her musical career. Her band, SCARLETT, released its first 5-song EP entitled Insane on January 7, 2010, through her official website and iTunes.
