Scarlett Johansson had a new boss recently–one she is related to. The actress serves as narrator in a recent audiobook production of the Lewis Carroll classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Big sister Vanessa Johansson was her director.
Vanessa Johannson is an accomplished voice actress and has lent her vocals to many Audible selections throughout the years. When this project came up, she knew Scarlett Johansson was the person for the job.

“It was kind of a no-brainer,” Vanessa says during a recent interview with People magazine. “We’re very close and, as you can imagine, have been playing around and doing funny voices since we were little so it was great project for the two of us because we’re so used to inventing together.”
Both Vanessa and Scarlett Johansson made the most of the studio time they spent together working on this project.
“There was a lot of laughter, a lot of goofiness happening. The story certainly warrants a lot of that,” Vanessa says. “It’s a total wacky, crazy story–we were like, ‘Oh my god, that was written for children?!’ It’s so out-there, really!”

How cool is it that Vanessa and Scarlett Johansson got to work on this unusual children’s classic together?
