Quite the Scare!
Winter heard that a character would be killed off during season 10 of Modern
Family, “I thought it was me,” she told Us at the
A Time for Heroes family festival on Oct. 28. And she says her costar Nolan Gould assumed it was him! “Nobody had told us and we just saw this Deadline headline,” she explains. “I was like, ‘Oh my God. It’s me. I’m done.’”
PART OF LIFE Now that Shelley Long’s character, DeDe, has been killed, Winter is glad the show finally tackled the topic of death. “We tried to make it as lighthearted as possible to just show how everybody deals with death differently and how it takes its toll.”
“Hopefully she’ll come back in flashbacks,” Winter, 20, says of her former costar Long, 69.
