Ariel Winter has been around for as long as many of us can remember. She began acting as a child and has made a name for herself in film, television shows, as well as animations. Also, the actress has been able to amass a massive followership on social media sites such as Instagram. Here are things to know about her.
Ariel Winter Bio (Age)
It was as Ariel Winter Workman that the actress was born on January 28, 1998, in Los Angeles, California. Although her elder siblings – Shanelle Workman and Jimmy Workman are actors, Ariel was forced into the entertainment industry by her mother since she was as young as 4.
The actress has not had what could be described as the easiest of childhood because of the various problems she had both in her personal and professional life.
In her personal life, she had had a very dramatic and unpleasant experience with her mother whom she said had abused her physically and emotionally since she was a kid. The actress said she didn’t have any relationship with her mother who denied her a lot as a child and sexualized her by the way in which she dressed her.
As a result of this and other abuses that she suffered, she became the subject of a legal battle, with her sister trying to get custody of her from her mother. Thanks to this, Shanelle Workman became the temporary guardian of her younger sister who was 14 and later a permanent guardian until the young actress became legally emancipated before she was 18. With that, it meant she could take care of herself and decide everything about her own life and finances.
For her education which she had always had a passion for even before she got dragged into acting by her mother, she was admitted to the University of California, Los Angeles after high school.
As regards her career, the Modern Family star began acting very early in her life. Her first role was in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang in 2005. The same year saw her working on Television shows such as Listen Up!, Tickle-U, and Freddie. Even before she began as an actress, her first gig was in a commercial when she was only 4 years old.
She would go on to appear in many more movies and TV shows but would become even more popular for her appearance in Modern Family in which she played the role of Alex Dunphy. She also did voice acting for Ice Age: The Meltdown, Horton Hears a Who!, and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete among many others.
Thanks to her roles in TV shows, Ariel has won multiple Screen Actors Guild Awards and Young Artist Awards.
