Margo attended Doncaster Grammar School for Girls where she was head girl. She appeared in Taggart "Cold Blood" in 1987 as Geraldine Keenan and again in "The Knife Trick" in 2009, as Pippa Harris, a friend of Robbie's and a senior lecturer in criminology. She also played the character Suzanne Harris in the 1993 episode "Instrument of Justice".

Between 2003 and 2005 she was Director of Drama and Head of Department at Gateways School near Leeds.

Margo used to run her own drama workshops for children called Active Arts with Amanda Jordan a home educator and former theatre director. She also has done work with the Drama Department at St Bede's Senior School in Hailsham. Recently she started working at Lewes Old Grammar School as a drama coach. She has recently appeared in TV adverts for Lloyds Pharmacy Hayfever Reliever (2009) and Warner Hotels Break from Multitasking (2010). Appears to have given up acting as no longer appears in the Spotlight Directory but it may also be due to teaching commitments and her work with the Globe Theatre which means she does not have the time for acting work.
