My vote goes to Janet Wong. She is exactly how I imagine Scarlett.

I'm fond of the Peacock/Scarlet mother/daughter stepmother/stepdaughter roles.

I went with Lysette Anthony. She manages to embody both the classy, sophisticated, girl with dreams beyond her looks and talent and the unraveling murderess trying to protect her image and status. I especially love the equestrian costume!

Nicola Van Dam also sports an equestrian costume in some of the CD-i games...

I'm a huge fan of Lesley Ann Warren's portrayal,

I had to go with Lysette Anthony. I think she really captures that kinda of bratty and stuck up country squire daughter-esque character.

But I also love Janet Wong and Lesley Ann Warren's portrayals. All three women embody the different character types Miss Scarlet has been perfectly. But Lysette really brings it home for me.
IT'S ALL TOO SHOCKING!

I've never played the CD-i games. But it is a great look for her.

1. Koo Stark, because she diffidently knew her source
2. VCR/ Cluedo season 1- In the vcr version, she felt like she only show what Scarlet was like in the 70s and 80s, which isn't bad, but it could have used some more variety. For the actress in season 1, it was the same problem in the 90s, but not necessarily a bad thing
3. Lesley Ann Warren did a very nice job, but it felt like she was just an ordinary criminal and not a special one (the green dress didn't really help.)
4. The season 3 actress did an alright job.
5. Christmas Special/ Season 4- I'm not really a fan of these two. There was something off with the Christmas Scarlet, and the entire season 4 just got dark out of completely nowhere

(I don't know enough about the cd-i game :| )
