Ariel Winter always wanted to be an actress — back when she was 4, she dreamed of entering the TV set and exploring with Dora the Explorer. After her mother hired an agent for her, Ariel landed her first paying job in a Cool Whip commercial. Ariel launched her motion picture career three years later (at age 7) in director Shane Black's hit cult film Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer. Other feature credits include One Missed Call, Duress, Opposite Day, and Nic & Tristan Go Mega Dega. She is best known for her portrayal of Trixie in Speed Racer.

Ariel has appeared on the small screen in Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan, Nip/Tuck, and Bones, and in 2009 she guest starred in the final six episodes of ER. In addition, she was the voice of Gretchen on Walt Disney's hit show Phineas and Ferb, a supporting character in the hit animated film Horton Hears a Who, and Thumper's sister in Bambi II.

Along with the rest of her Modern Family co-stars, Ariel won a 2011 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

When not acting, Ariel enjoys going to the movies with friends, hanging out with her three dogs (Pebbles, Hercules, and Cher), and jumping on her trampoline.
