Sarah Hyland Says Her ‘Modern Family’ Character Is Bisexual

Sarah Hyland said Wednesday that her “Modern Family” character Haley Dunphy is bisexual.

The 26-year-old actress responded to a fan who asked whether it was true that Haley is bisexual, writing, “I don’t know what the writers would say? But I confirm.”

TheWrap has reached out to ABC and Fox. Representatives for the show’s co-creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Hyland’s followers were quick to praise the actress. One user wrote, “Yay! Go Sarah! I’m bi and proud,” while another said, “This made me tear up a lil thank you love.”

“Modern Family” has run for 9 seasons, and Haley has had nine boyfriends, including on-again-off-again love interest Dylan (played by Reid Ewing). She has yet to date a woman.

The popular sitcom also stars Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Nolan Gould and Ariel Winter.

Also on Wednesday, the actress slammed Life & Style magazine for writing a story alleging the actress had plastic surgery. See her tweet below.

“Modern Family” airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
