Harley Alexandra Diaz is the protagonist of Stuck in the Middle. She is portrayed by Jenna Ortega.


Harley is an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a large family of seven kids.


Harley is an inventive, caring, smart girl with a sense of humor. Harley is an extremely intelligent and observant person as seen as when she invented a roller coaster when Daphne threw Georgie's Bobble heads out the window. Despite being very intelligent, Harley is still social and enjoys spending time with others. She is also very kind as seen when she was willing to help Rachel with her social life and help Georgie with golf. Harley also has a temper and can hold a grudge as seen when she was visibly angered when Cuff threw a chicken bone in her invention Bag, blasted Rachel with snow when she didn't invite her to a party and held a tight grudge to get Cuff out of the house. Harley is also a bit of a wise cracker and has a dry sense of humor at times. She also tends to be pushy and a bit bossy when it comes to her inventions and other circumstances and  is sometimes willing to nanipulate people such as when she manipulated Lewie and Beast to make the slushies to make her money which resulted in them seperating and hating eachother. This implies that Harley sometimes doesn't think things through but she is willing to make things right when things go wrong.
