We were afraid this was going to happen.
Modern Family producer Steven Levitan hinted a while back that they were thinking of replacing the show's adorable yet quiet baby Lily, played by twins Jaden and Ella Hiller, with a toddler.
Modern Family fans were hoping it was all just joke since Lily is one of the reasons that makes the show so magical and funny. Watching her expressionless face as her dads Mitchell and Cameron dress her up in silly outfits is really one of the most charming things on television. We're going to be devastated if the little girl is replaced.
Looks like all signs are pointing to yes, though, as star Jesse Tyler Ferguson mentioned on Inside the Actors Studio that it was a possibility. AND what's worse is that there's a casting notice for an "Asian, 3- to 4-year-old daughter of Mitchell and Cameron."
WAAAH We're heartbroken! Let's protest! Bring Lily back! Bring Lily back!
