Modern Family is luring local talent as support cast for its upcoming ‘Australian holiday’ episodes

22-year old Sunshine Coast model Jye Williams has scored a cameo role in Modern Family.

Williams will appear in scenes with actress Sarah Hyland for its upcoming Australian holiday episodes, although his exact role is unclear.

Georgia Barclay, Vivien’s Model Management’s Queensland manager, is excited about William’s potential for “international success.”

“Jye is such a talented and confident individual.  He is not only a professional model, but also an incredibly competent actor with so much potential…We are very proud of his latest achievements and we can’t wait to watch the episode,” she said.

Modern Family’s Australia visit is not without its controversy: last week, Hyland accused local man Nedal Lakmas of sexual assault during a Qantas-sponsored event.
