CARLIE CASEY "MARGOT"
creator / writer / co-director / actress / producer
Carlie Casey is the mother of Are You There God? It's Me Margot. She's been working professionally as an actress since she was a tiny nugget around the age of 10. She had the time of her child hood playing Missy Meany on Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide". She went on to play Mercedes Griffin on "Big Time Rush", and then made her transition into adult roles when she worked on Fox's "House", where she had her first (and only) sex scene. Since then she's been fortunate to work guest spots on New Girl, Hawaii Five O, Perception, Murder in the First, as well as incredible pilots such as Fox's "Like Father" and CW's "Company Town" (where she met and fell in deep friend love with Joy Brunson aka Rae). She's written a film, as well as a dozen unfinished screenplays ( soooooo LA) before she decided to create this web series. She is most passionate about story telling that empowers women to be real, and change the stereotypical narratives we've been seeing, playing, and watching for way too long. She's obsessed and in love with every one of the women who brought this to life and can't wait for you to fall in love with them too.

KENDALL SCHMIDT "RYAN"
"I've already been blessed with a wonderfully weird career starting as a child actor and evolving into a life long creator. One of the biggest blessings so far is the life long friendship my family and I have with the Casey's. When I was asked to play "Ryan" on the show, I couldn't resist the urge to be part of something fun with such great friends. I look forward to many more years creating and collaborating with such genuine people. Hope everyone loves Margot!" - KENDALL
