Sarah Jane Hyland (born November 24, 1990)[1] is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role as oldest sibling Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom Modern Family.

Early life[edit]

Hyland was born in New York City, the daughter of actors Melissa Canaday and Edward James Hyland. She is the sister of actor Ian Hyland, who is four years younger.[1]

Hyland attended the Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan alongside Andrea Bowen, Taylor Momsen, Gregory Malek-Jones and Paul Iacono.[2]

Career[edit]

Hyland has been acting since she was five years old, with her first role as Howard Stern's daughter in the film Private Parts.[3] She went on in her career to portray such roles as Molly in the 1999 television remake of Annie, and has played Brooke Shields' daughter, Maddie Healy, in Lipstick Jungle on NBC. Hyland is featured in an Olive Garden commercial along with actress Molly Culver, and has also appeared on Broadway playing the young Jacqueline Bouvier in Grey Gardens the musical.[4]

Hyland currently plays Haley Dunphy on the ABC sitcom Modern Family, for which she and the rest of the show's cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series from 2011 through 2013.

In 2011, Hyland co-starred with Matt Prokop in the Disney Channel Original Movie Geek Charming.

In 2012, Hyland appeared in the film Struck by Lightning alongside Chris Colfer.[5]

In September 2012, it was announced that she will be part of a Nintendo 3DS ad campaign.[6] Dianna Agron and Gabby Douglas are part of the campaign as well.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

In 2009, Hyland began dating actor Matt Prokop, whom she met while auditioning for High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Hyland and Prokop lived together from 2011[7] until 2014.[8] On September 19, 2014, Hyland was granted a temporary restraining order against Prokop after he assaulted and threatened her.[9]

Hyland was diagnosed with kidney dysplasia as a young child. In April 2012, she received a kidney transplant. Her father was the donor.[10]
