Sarah Hyland was spotted in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Wednesday night (March 14) as Modern Family was honored during PaleyFest 2012. Sarah – wearing a chic patterned mini – joined her MF castmates in answering questions about their hit show and giving audience members a preview of upcoming episodes. The one they’re most eager for their fans to see – the TV family’s outing to Disneyland.
“You’re in Southern California, it’s just an hour away; it’s a day trip. It just felt like a natural story point. How do you do a show about a family in Southern California and not take a day trip to Disneyland!?” says series co-creator Steve Levitan.
One reason Sarah might be extra fond of the episode that takes place in the Magic Kingdom – it introduces a new love interest for her character Hayley, and the boy is played by Sarah’s real-life boyfriend Matt Prokop. Hayley’s MF mom Claire (Julie Bowen) invites Matt’s character along on their trip to Disneyland, but Haley isn’t interested because her old beau Dylan (Reid Ewing) is back in the picture. Can’t wait to see it!
