Molly Jane McCook
July 30, 1990
Los Angeles, California, U.S.
Early in her career, McCook had minor roles in television's 10 Things I Hate About You and Glee, both filmed in 2009 and released in 2010. She acted in a five-episode arc of the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, with her father, John, a series regular, in 2010. McCook appeared that same year in the music video for "If Eyes Could Speak," a single released by Devon Werkheiser. She also maintains a YouTube channel in which she displays her singing abilities.
In 2012, McCook appeared as Madison Evans in a four episode arc of the short-lived, low-budget series, Never Fade Away. That year, McCook also played Natalie in the horror film, Excision; and then once again joined her father in acting in the short film, Christmas Without You.
In 2013, she was in an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the following year in an episode of Modern Family. McCook's character featured heavily in the web series, Guidance, in its inaugural season (2016). She was in several episodes of The Ranch in 2016–2018. Since 2019, McCook has appeared on the Freeform network in the recurring role of court clerk, Rebecca, in season one of the Good Trouble spin-off of The Fosters TV show.
From 2018 to 2021, she starred as the major character, middle daughter Mandy, in the last three seasons of Last Man Standing on the Fox Network, a role she inherited from Molly Ephraim after the show's hiatus and network switch in 2017-2018.
