Modern Family’s Julie Bowen Does Her Best Sofía Vergara Impression on “Ellen”


If you’re a fan of “Modern Family,” you could probably recognize Sofia Vergara’s endearing accent from a mile away. As it turns out, her fellow castmates have a good time impersonating her on set— and Julie Bowen’s impression is pretty much spot on.

The “Modern Family” cast visited “The Ellen Show” to talk about the show’s tenth season and what it’s been like to work together for so many years when they got on the subject of Sofia’s distinct accent.

Ellen asked the cast who had the best impression of Sofia and everyone unanimously voted Julie, prompting Ellen to request a sample.

Fans of “Modern Family” have been reeling lately after the show’s creator revealed a significant character will be killed off this season.

“We’re handling some bigger life events in this season,” Modern Family co-creator Christopher Lloyd said. “We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject. But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”
