Damn, girl! Sarah Hyland has amassed a large net worth after 11 seasons on Modern Family, multiple movies and endorsement deals. Although her Instagram bio touts that her life is “kind of all over the place,” the actress became a full-fledged millionaire with a net worth of $14 million before turning 30. How does Sarah make her money? Keep reading to find out!
Showbusiness is definitely in the Manhattan native’s blood. Her parents, Melissa D. Canaday and Edward James Hyland, are both actors, and Sarah started doing voiceover gigs and commercial work when she was just a kid. She was accepted into the prestigious Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan in sixth grade and began her on-screen acting career in the 1997 film Private Parts.
Her resume was already stacked with A-list costars, like Kathy Bates, Kristin Chenoweth and Paul Rudd, by the time she moved to Los Angeles at 18. Just two weeks after settling down in the West Coast, she landed a starring role as Haley Dunphy on My American Family, which would soon morph into Modern Family.
In 2012, Sarah and the rest of the kids in the booming sitcom negotiated salary increases to $70,000 per episode. The See You in Valhalla star got another pay bump to over $100,000 per episode in 2017. To give you an idea of how much Sarah was raking in, each season of Modern Family has over 20 episodes, meaning the actress was making upwards of $2 million every year. Um, wow!
The longtime sitcom ended in April 2020 after over 10 years, but Sarah still has a lot happening in her career. She not only starred as Mara in 2019’s The Wedding Year, but she was also an executive producer. It was recently announced that she is working with Emily V. Gordon, writer of The Big Sick, in an untitled TV project.
Like any ~modern~ star, Sarah also has multiple brand partnerships with companies like Bounty, AfterPay, Hasbro, Rooted Rituals and Bitten Dressing that she promotes on her social media pages. Considering she has almost 7.5 million followers, it’s safe to say she’s getting a substantial paycheck.
Although the Dirty Dancing starlet is a major power player in Hollywood, she seems to genuinely enjoy her career. Keep slaying!
