Early Life[]

Ariel Winter was born on January 28, 1998, in Los Angeles. Her parents are Chrisoula (née Batistas) and Glenn Workman. Through her mother, she is of Greek descent, and through her father, of German descent. Winter has two older siblings, Shanelle Workman and Jimmy Workman, who are also actors. Her mother originally wanted to name her Jackie or Jacqueline, but got to name Shanelle and Jimmy, while Winter's father and brother insisted on naming her. They were big fans of The Little Mermaid so they decided to name her Ariel after the cartoon character of the same name.


Winter got her first entertainment industry job in a Cool Whip commercial in 2002 when she was four years old. She had her first television role in an episode of Listen Up!, which was followed by small roles in various shows and movies. Alongside filming, Winter began doing voice work for children's shows such as Phineas and Ferb, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Sofia the First.

In 2009, Winter became part of the main cast of the family sitcom Modern Family and starred in it until the show's finale in 2020. Winter and her co-stars won four Screen Actors Guild Awards for "Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series."

Winter voiced young Kairi in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. Winter has also voiced Mog from Final Fantasy XIII-2, Moglin from Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Cassie from Guild Wars 2.

In 2022, Winter starred in the horror video game The Quarry, where she voiced and motion captured the character Abigail.
