Who plays Margot in Pretty Smart?

Molly Ephraim plays Margot Wainwright in Pretty Smart.

Margot was the valedictorian at Chelsea’s high school when Chelsea was salutatorian.

The pair have been competitive with one another their whole lives. When they bump into each other years down the line, Chelsea feels she has failed in life compared with everything Margot has achieved.

Chelsea ends up lying to Margot to make herself seem better, saying she has her own novel and a perfect boyfriend.

When Margot comes to dinner, Chelsea makes Grant, Solana and Claire act as her boyfriend, literary agent and personal cook. However, Jayden gatecrashes the dinner party and lets it slip that it’s all a lie, pretty awkward right?
