Awesome! Modern Family will feature the FIRST openly transgender child actor on TV!
Jackson Millarker is 8-years-old and he will play Lily’s friend who happens to be transgender. Ryan Case directed the episode and he said on Instagram, “This is Jackson Millarker. He’s 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender. He plays Lily’s friend Tom in this week’s Modern Family and he’s wonderful. One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show.”
