Margo Harshman stars as Screwsie, Alex's (Amanda Peet) wild younger sister who appears to be cut from the same fun-loving, somewhat reckless cloth as Pete (David Walton) on NBC's comedy "Bent."
Harshman was born in San Diego and is the youngest of four children. Her performing career began at the age of two, when her grandmother entered her in a local beauty pageant where she was quickly noticed. Margo's love of acting blossomed when she worked with Coast Kids Theatre in San Diego and at the age of 12 she found herself auditioning for theatrical and commercial jobs.
Her guest-starring roles on television include "Modern Family," "Boston Legal," "90210," "Grey's Anatomy," "Everwood" and "Without a Trace." She spent three years as Tawny, alongside Shia LaBeouf, on the hit cable series "Even Stevens." She also starred in "Run of the House" with Joey Lawrence, and later appeared in "Center of the Universe" where she co-starred with John Goodman.
Harshman's film credits include a variety of studio and independent features including "Fired Up," the romantic comedy "Keith," "Simon Says" with Crispin Glover, "From Within" and "Sorority Row."
In her spare time, Harshman enjoys music, surfing, and working as a volunteer for charities close to her heart. She is currently a spokesperson for Special Olympics and has also volunteered for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
