Modern Family Actor Drops Bombshell About Show's Character
We've watched her grow-up over nine seasons of Modern Family but now Sarah Hyland has dropped a bombshell about her character on the long-running comedy series.
The 26-year-old was answering fan questions on Twitter when one asked her whether or not the character of Haley Dunphy is bisexual.
"I don't know what the writers would say?" Hyland responded. "But I confirm."

Hyland's admission sparked praise from her followers, who quickly rushed to reply.
"Yay! Go Sarah! I'm bi and proud!" one user wrote with another adding: "This made me tear up a lil thank you."
As the news quickly spread, though, Hyland jumped back on social media to clarify her earlier message, explaining that it was what she herself felt rather than anything she had been explicitly told.
"I haven't been told nor is there anything written that would indicate Haley is bisexual," she wrote. "That's just my personal opinion."

Hyland herself, however, has recently been romantically linked to Bachelor alumni Wells Adam, posting a cute Halloween couple photo of the pair dressed as characters from Stranger Things.
