Webseries IN BETWEEN MEN, Starring Margot Bingham, Debuts Second Season, 2/12
24-year-old performer Margot Bingham currently stars as the female lead in the hit web series In Between Men. In Between Men examines the lives of the four young men and one woman from different walks of life and of differing sexualities, who do not fit into the lives and perceptions expected of them in New York City. The web series became a major hit in its first season with over 2 million viewers in 150 countries. The much anticipated Season 2 premiere debuts on February 12th, 2013 worldwide.
Margot has several new projects within the next few months, which will make for an interesting interview. In addition to her co-starring role on In Between Men, she participated in a reading of the upcoming Broadway production of Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway directed by Susan Stroman. Among her upcoming undertakings, Margot has signed a music distribution deal in Japan and will be headed to London to promote and perform her pop-inspired music.
Margot can personally relate to the premise of In Between Men, for she is the daughter of former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Craig Bingham and goddaughter to the football superstar Jack Ham, but never felt like she fit in to the sports world growing up. She found her niche in the performing arts world, and as a child had the opportunity to sing the national anthem at Steelers, Penguins and Cleveland Cavalier games.
Margot's character on In Between Men Kendra Sharpe is a suave, sultry, no nonsense, high-powered NYC publicist. She is corporate sexy personified.
She recently was the featured face of Revlon for their 2012 Expression Experiment that caught the attention of over 500,000 Revlon social media fans.
"Expression to me is stepping outside of your box, daring to do something different." Margot emphasized in the campaign. "People are a little bit scared to explore themselves and try to dare to do or be something bigger than themselves. I learned to express myself through any color."
Margot embraces and appreciates natural beauty, making her a role model to all women. "I went natural just over a year ago and am loving my natural curls. It took me a while to learn to love the natural me but now am embracing it," Margot said about her hair.
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.
She has made a name for herself as the former National Miss Black Teen, the NYC Off-Broadway revival of Jonathan Larson's RENT, One Life To Live, the John Leguziamo project Fugly, and the soon-to-be released CBS Television Series Golden Boy. She's been featured in commercials for Revlon, Geico, GNC, Nikon, and Hoover Vacuum. Performing as Margot B., she has shared the stage with Jason Mraz, Black Eyed Peas, Kelly Clarkson, Nelly Furtado, and Lupe Fiasco; has produced or co-produced her entire music catalog; and can be seen around NYC at clubs Rockwood Music Hall, Webster Hall, National Underground and SOB's.
2005 saw two major milestones: her first full-length CD "Unframed" was released to a sold-out crowd at the Hard Rock Café, and she was a main force behind Pittsburgh's Katrina Relief Benefit Concert (both planning and performing) at Mellon Arena. The citywide event featured 10 acts, garnered major media attention, and raised approximately $200,000 for the American Red Cross.
2009 kicked off with Margot being named Best Female Vocalist at the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Awards, and hitting the recording studio to finish her second full-length CD "Two Thousand Mind". Her music video "Complete" aired nationally in Club Com's network rotation, while her voice was showcased in a national Hoover Vacuum commercial.
From the pageant stage to the soundstage, to center stage with a Grammy-nominated artist, Margot makes a habit of working hard and moving forward. For more information on Margot, visit www.MargotB.com.
