Modern Family Recasting Baby Lily
The adorable baby Lily, Mitchell and Cameron’s daughter from Modern Family is getting axed! Lily is currently played by Jaden and Ella Hiller, the extremely pleasant and charming set of twins who have both been playing the role for the past two seasons. However, ABC has just released a casting call for a 3-4 year old Asian to play the daughter of Mitchell and Cameron.
In the upcoming season, Mitchell and Cam may start the process of bringing another child to their fold..which perhaps also means that Lily will need to evolve into a more gregarious and outspoken character. Depending on how the twins themselves evolve, the writers want to keep their options open.
While there’s a chance that this will not happen (we don’t think anyone else can be Lily!), executive producer Steve Levitan explains to EW, ”We adore Jaden and Ella, but have started to think that they’d rather be at home playing than working as actors. If we end up making a change, it’s only because we want what’s best for them.
As for us, we hope the twins will stay! Team Jaden and Ella!
