Originally from New York City, New York comes a beautiful and talented 22 year old Actress by the name of Sarah Hyland who was born on November 24th, 1990 to parents Melissa Canaday and Edward James Hyland. Sarah Hyland stars in the award winning ABC series Modern Family as Haley Dunphy along side Ariel Winter (Alex Dunphy), Ty Burrell (Phil Dunphy), Julie Bowen (Claire Dunphy) and Nolan Gould (Luke Dunphy), to name a few. Miss Hyland has also be seen in Struck By Lightning as Claire Mathews, Geek Charming as Dylan Schoenfield and Lipstick Jungle as Maddie Healy, just to name a few.

Sarah Hyland is a Native New Yorker, born to actor parents, so talent and love for the craft runs in the family. Trained in all areas of dance from the age of three and vocally trained since she was seven, Hyland is a true triple threat. She has been working in film, TV series, soaps and commercials since she was four years old.

Hyland's first film was Howard Stern's "Private Parts." At the age of eight she landed the role of Molly in ABC's "Annie," and Young Audrey in "The Audrey Hepburn Story." After filming "Annie," she took on the role of Jess Pistone on "Falcone."

She's guest starred on episodes of "Touched by an Angel," "Law & Order" and "Law & Order: SVU."

While attending the Professional Performing Arts School in New York City, Hyland created the role of Jackie Bouvier in "Grey Gardens" at Playwrights Horizons, and moved with the production to make her Broadway debut. Her most recent work includes the recurring role of Maddie Healy (Brooke Shields' daughter) on "Lipstick Jungle" and a tour-de-force guest starring role on "Law & Order: SVU."

This past fall she starred opposite Matt Prokop in the Disney Channel Original Movie "Geek Charming." Hyland can also be seen in the coming-of-age comedy "Struck by Lightning," with Chris Colfer, Allison Janney and Christina Hendricks, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this April. "Struck by Lightning" will be released in theaters later this year.

Nominated for Choice TV Female Scene Stealer for the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, Hyland's charitable causes include being a Youth Ambassador for The Lopez Foundation, as well as Share Our Strength's No
