‘Modern Family’ star Nolan Gould grew up before America’s eyes

Nolan Gould was 10 years old when he was introduced to America as sweet-but-clueless kid brother Luke Dunphy on ABC’s “Modern Family.”

As the popular sitcom nears its April 8 finale after 11 seasons, Gould, now 21, says that reading the script for that final episode caught him emotionally off-guard.

“I really had no idea what to expect, and I was trying very much to pull the 21-year-old machismo thing,” Gould tells The Post. “I wasn’t going to cry, and then we had the final table read, and at the end [of the script] when it said ‘End of Series’ I just started balling. My TV sisters [Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter] pulled out their cellphones and tried to record me crying.
