Margot Bingham (aka 'Margot B.') is an actress, going from the pageant stage to center stage with a Grammy-nominated artist, to the HBO Boardwalk Empire sound stage.
The Pittsburgh native began her career in front of the cameras at the age of nine, modeling for local and national talent agencies. It's been a steady accomplished rise ever since. At 13, she wrote a tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called In My Dreams, which continues to be featured at MLK events nationwide. The summer of 2010 started out hot with her touring alongside Jason Mraz on select tour dates. Margot performed the duet Lucky with Jason in venues such as Nikon at Jones Beach in New York, Minneapolis' Xcel Energy Center (on her 21st birthday), and in her hometown. Bingham's"Complete" video is airing nationally in Club Com's network rotation, while her voice is showcased in a national Hoover Vacuum commercial. Her last release is "Live at the Hazlett", and a European roll-out of her pop inspired music has begun.
Bingham has appeared in the off-Broadway revival of Jonathan Larson's Tony Award winning Rent in New York City. She counts commercials for Geico, Nikon, and Reebok among her resume. Her face has graced the Revlon.Com website alongside the likes of Halle Barry, Olivia Wilde, and Emma Stone, as a star of their Revlon Expression Experiment. She's the voice of the documentary short "Death of a Forest", and has been featured on CBS' The Early Show, Regis Philbin's last "Live w/ Regis & Kelly", and MTV's Made. Work on the web series In Between Men garnered her a Best Breakout Performance nod at the 2011 Indie Soap Awards, and though nominated for a 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Cover Song, performing her original music remains her one true love, as evidenced by her a rave-review earning Soul Factory Presents performance at NYC's drom Nightclub. Margot regularly performs at top NYC music venues like Rockwood Music Hall (catch a live HD recording here), Webster Hall, Sofia's, and BAM/Brooklyn Academy of Music.
As of 2013, she is appearing as 'Daughter Maitland' on the Emmy Award-winning cable TV show Boardwalk Empire. Her portrayal of a sexy Onyx Club chanteuse allows her to utilize both her acting and singing skills. Two songs Bingham performs on the show, "I'm Going South" and "Somebody Loves Me," are included on the just released soundtrack, "Boardwalk Empire, Volume 2," alongside numbers by artists such as Elvis Costello, Liza Minnelli, and Patti Smith. Her image has been used extensively in the period drama's Season Four promotional campaign, which showcases her in nationally run print ads, buses, billboards, and subway signs. She walked the Red Carpet at the NYC premiere, and rubbed elbows with the likes of Sean Combs and Russell Simmons at the LA fete.
Margot has also always been known to lend a helping hand to those in need. She supports philanthropic events such as the Women Who Care's luncheon benefiting Cerebral Palsy NYC; the Georges Malaika Foundation Gala fostering empowerment in the Congo; and the Point Foundation's annual fund-raiser supporting LGBTQ youth.
She is based out of New York City.
