Who is Sarah Hyland?

Sarah Hyland is an American actress who received critical acclaim for portraying the role of Haley Dunphy in the ABC sitcom 'Modern Family'. Coming from a family involved in the show business, she started acting when she was only four years old, and later worked in theatre, films and television. During her early teenage years, she made her official Broadway debut in a production of 'Grey Gardens' in the role of Jackie Bouvier. Following her success on stage, she was flooded with offers for roles in films and television series.

Nevertheless, with support from her parents, she has overcome a lot of the issues, and is now determined to have an "extraordinary" life.
