Margot Bingham, Margot B, discusses ‘Boardwalk Empire’

Margot Bingham may be known to fans as Margot B, but the young actress and singer is making a name for herself, especially since her role as Daughter Maitland on HBO’s hit show Boardwalk Empire.

Margot Bingham Margot B Boardwalk EmpireTalking with Pittsburgh City Paper,  Margot B explains her shift to focus on an acting career.

“I do try to keep them separate. It helps me mentally, to differentiate between the two. Margot Bingham is focused more on the acting, and Margot B. is focused on singing, and they’re two different things. Margot B. is a product within itself, so that Margot Bingham will be whatever character I need to be.”

Bingham, now 25, explains the different styles and eras of music.

“I think because it is my character on Boardwalk — I didn’t know [’20s-style jazz] before Boardwalk came around, music-wise. I was definitely listening to ’40s and ’50s jazz, always, my whole life. So when I started listening to some of the ’20s music, and focusing more on that as the character, I kind of placed that as her voice. So when I stepped out of the character, it was easy for me to drop that mask. It’s nice to still be able to have my own music, and it keeps me busy in-between times. And it’s nice to do the ’20s music because it allows me to play a little with my vocal ability and see what I’m capable of that I didn’t even know I could do.”

Fans shouldn’t be sad, Margot B sounds like she still has a passion for music, so check out the full interview with her reflecting on her days in Pittsburgh – read it here
