Jenna Ortega

Audiences are sticking with young actress Jenna Ortega, whose popular series “Stuck in the Middle” will soon come to an end this year.   Jenna starred as Harley, an engineering prodigy whose creative inventions help her navigate life as the middle child in a family of seven.  Her role in the program, which is told from Harley's perspective, earned Jenna a 2017 Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a TV Series.
Known for her role as Young Jane on the Golden Globe-winning CW program “Jane the Virgin,”
Jenna also lends her voice as Princess Isabel on the Emmy-nominated Disney Channel animated series “Elena of Avalor.”  Her previous work includes such television series as “Richie Rich,” “AwesomenessTV,” “OMG!,” “Rake,” “Deadtime Stories” and “CSI: NY,”  along with a starring role on the YouTube series “Know It All Nina.”
Jenna spent this past summer filming the independent drama film Saving Flora, in which she stars as Dawn, a circus owner’s daughter who rescues a retiring elephant the night before it is scheduled to be euthanized. The family film, also featuring David Arquette, Tom Arnold and Leonor Varela, will be released in 2018.  Other film credits include the drama After Words, the family video The Little Rascals Save the Day, the horror thriller Insidious: Chapter 2 and the Disney blockbuster Iron Man 3, in which she starred as the Vice President’s daughter.
Born in Coachella Valley, California, Jenna has been acting since she was eight years old.  In her spare time she enjoys playing soccer, cheerleading, reading, and hanging out with her friends and dog, Anna.  She currently resides in Coachella Valley, and like Harley in “Stuck in the Middle,” is a middle child in a large family – the fourth of six children.
