Margo Harshman started learning to act at an early age and performed in several beauty pageants as a child. She landed a co-starring role in the 1997 family movie "The Elf Who Didn't Believe" and a few years later a part in the television movie "Murphy's Dozen", starring Kathy Baker. But it's Harshman's role as Tawny Dean on the Disney Channel program "Even Stevens", opposite a hyped-up Shia LaBeouf, that the actress is best known for. She played LaBeouf's friend and eventually his girlfriend on the show. Harshman has also appeared on the short-lived sitcom "Run of the House" and on the failed John Goodman sitcom "Center of the Universe".
