That feels like an end and I don’t want to see that. I want to see another day in the life of what this family looks like. I want to know that, even though we’re not going to be watching them anymore, these things are going to keep happening — like Phil is going to keep getting hurt, Luke is going to keep coming up with bad ideas, Haley is going to keep being irresponsible. We want to see that so the audience can imagine it continuing on.”

Unfortunately, I’m not within the episode. Me and Ariel [Winter] each aren’t in it. But there are two French extras within the background of one of many photographs who look a surprising quantity like me and Ariel, so preserve a watch out. That form of provides you an thought of what our set is like. I requested our producer Steve Levitan, ‘I know it would break the fourth wall and everything but can I be in the back since it’s our last one? I can’t not be in it. Let me sneak in.’ We’ve bought simply such an easygoing, enjoyable, beautiful set.”
Nolan doesn’t have something acting-wise lined up after Modern Family ends for the time being however he’s excited to see what the longer term holds.
