"Modern Family's" Lily has had quite the growth spurt between seasons.
As we reported earlier, there was a casting call out for a new daughter for the ABC show's couple Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), seeking an "Asian, 3- to 4-year-old" girl since the character was supposed to start taking on a larger storyline.
As Tyler Ferguson previously explained to E!, "Lily will definitely be more prominent in season three...She'll be almost 3, so you have to have her as an integral part of the storyline. You know, she'll be going to preschool and socializing more and all that stuff, so it will be fun."
The young actress who will be taking on the part is 4-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, reports Entertainment Weekly, which has exclusive photos of "Modern Family's" latest cast member.
In the photo above, Anderson-Emmons' Lily is seen with adopted dad Cameron (Stonestreet).
Although Nolan Gould, who portrays Luke Dunphy, hasn't worked with his new castmate yet, it seems Anderson-Emmons has mastered the on-set basics. "[Sh]e is really happy," he tells EW. "She says lines. She does everything. She’s really cute.”
