A field guide to the fresh young talents you need to know now
Sarah Hyland—The Class Clown (female)
Everyone who has seen Modern Family, a sweet and quirky take on suburban American life, loves it. Each member of the cast stands out on his or her own, but this year, 20-year-old Sarah Hyland separated herself from the pack as the ditzy daughter, Haley Dunphy, carrying a classic breakup episode with her own hilarious brand of tantrums and histrionics. She manages to pack a big comedic punch into the most basic of eye rolls or cell phone conversations, lending the show a small dash of acid humor—we almost hope Haley doesn’t get into college so that Hyland can stick around.
