Biography

A child star with a strong screen presence, Ariel Winter played the younger versions of Tori Spelling on the misbegotten "reality" show "So noTORIous" (VH1, 2006) and Christina Ricci in the feature film "Speed Racer" (2008) and essayed the terrifying ghost at the heart of "One Missed Call" (2008). She broke through as Alex, the brainy middle Dunphy child, on "Modern Family" (ABC, 2009- ), where she proved herself adept at both comedy and drama. A heavily in-demand voiceover actress as well, Winter could be heard on "Phineas and Ferb" (Disney Channel, 2007- ) and "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" (Disney Junior, 2011- ), but she earned an even more massive profile boost as the voice of Disney's "Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess" (2012). Hardworking and grounded, Ariel Winter seemed to set herself apart from her wilder peers by her focus on work and family life as a "regular" kid, as much as that was possible for a burgeoning talent.
