Ariel Winter (born Ariel Winter Workman, January 28, 1998) is an American teen actress, voice actress, and singer. She is known for her current role as Alex Dunphy in the ABC sitcom series Modern Family, for which she won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series, along with the rest of the show's cast. In 2011, Winter landed the voice of Marina the Mermaid on the Disney Junior animated series Jake and the Never Land Pirates; in 2013 she graduated to voicing the title character on Sofia the First.



Ariel Winter exhibits the following tropes:

  • Adorkable : She's often typecast into playing dorky, geeky characters that are so cute and lovable. She can also be this in real life, particularly when excited.
  • D-Cup Distress: She had to have breast reduction surgery in 2015.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As Alex in Modern Family.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Winter dyed her hair red for the shooting of The Last Movie Star, and this while she was a senior in high school (typical American High School codes usually have some kind of restriction on dying hair, and so she may not have done so before or for any reason but the film).
  • Hiccup Hijinks: She got hiccups on two separate occasions, once in 2012 and the other in 2014 .
  • Ms. Fanservice: Not on screen but she's definitely one in real life, as a look at her Instagram can attest.
