Film

Is an American actress. She first came to prominence starring as Jasira in the 2007 film Towelhead, for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead. Over the following few years, she had small roles in films and TV series like The Last Airbender (2010) and 90210 (2011) before starring in the short-lived ABC series Lucky 7 (2013). She is best known for her role as Margo Hanson on the Syfy fantasy drama series The Magicians, in which she starred from 2015 to 2020.With an uncanny ability to portray emotionally tragic characters, Summer Bishil was one Hollywood ingénue who stood out among a sea of cookie-cutter starlets. Bishil's stellar performance in "Towelhead" (2008) as Jasira Maroun, a biracial 13-year-old who gets caught up in a twisted affair and eventually raped by an adult male, was so unsettling, critics everywhere took notice. Like her film character, Bishil was a unique cultural blend - part Indian, part Hispanic and part Caucasian. It was no surprise when Variety chose the exotic beauty as one of the "10 Actors to Watch" in 2007. She also appeared in the L.A. immigrant narrative "Crossing Over" (2008) with Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd - yet another milestone for a young actress on the rise.

In love with the idea of becoming an actress since the age of five, Bishil was 14 when she took her first acting class. Nine months later, a manager and agency signed her to a contract. Her first role was on a short-lived Nickelodeon show, Just for Kicks, followed by several appearances in children's shows before her break-through performance in Towelhead. Bob Strauss, who writes for several Los Angeles newspapers, stated that Bishil "is one of the finest natural film actresses to emerge in years." Gary Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times, in a September 12 review of the movie Towelhead, stated that "newcomer Summer Bishil turns in a gutsy, quietly riveting performance as Jasira."SB: I was only 18 when I filmed that. Of course, I did know that I respected all of their work a great deal and I was lucky to be able to learn from them. I looked at it as a learning opportunity and focused on learning something from them during scene work and I think that kept me from being terrified. (Source: www.geekgirlauthority.com)
