While she’s spent half her life on “Modern Family”, Ariel Winter says she’s “ready” to move on.
The actress, 21, stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres” show on Thursday and chatted about the hit Global comedy and confirmed the series finale isn’t something the cast wanted.
“It’s sad obviously,” Winter told guest host tWitch. “It’s not something that we want. We love each other and we love our show.”
She added, “But, it’s been 11 years and I think everyone’s ready to do new things.”
Winter, who was only 11 when she landed the role of Alex Dunphy, says the cast has become like family.
“It’s been half my life,” she continued. “I’ll be 22 when we end the show next year. Honestly, it’s so amazing to have a job like this with people that you love for 11 years. The amount of grateful that we all are is ridiculous.”
“Modern Family” launched the careers of the entire cast of kids, Winter, Sarah Hyland, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez while the beloved series also starred Julie Bowen, Sofía Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell.
An all-new episode of the final season of “Modern Family” airs Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. on Global.
