Sarah Hyland says of her character Haley, The only thing I have in common with Haley is that I constantly have my phone either on me, or in its charger, 24/7. Im into fashion but Im mostly too lazy to dress up (thetvchick.com).
She said, Ive never been on a sitcom before. Ive never ever thought of myself as a funny person. And comedy has always been a thing for me like Well, Im not the funniest. I went to a performing arts high school and when we had improve, I would just freak out because I was like I cant come up with anything funny. Everybody else is funny.
Growing up, Sarah Hyland attended the Professional Performing Arts School in Manhattan. Her debut role was as Howard Sterns daughter in Private Parts. Other parts include the remake of Annie, Lipstick Jungle, and commercials for Olive Garden. She set to be part of a Nintendo campaign.
Sarah Hyland also made a video for peta2 discussing animal testing. She recommends companies that do not test on animals.
In 2012, Sarah Hyland received a kidney transplant (donated from her father,) and revealed her struggle with kidney dysplasia, a condition that results from the malformation of a kidney during fetal development. She said, You know that family is going to be there for you no matter what. My dad gave me a freakin kidney! But its also the families that you create outside of your family. And you really find out what kind of people youre friends with. It was just amazing, and it really opened my eyes to see whos there for me and whos not (seventeen.com).
Sarah Hyland added, Any other 21-year-old guy would not be there, I guarantee it. I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have [Matt Prokop] be there for me.
Sarah is dating actor Matt Prokop. They moved in together when she was 19. She said, I love living in L.A. Its quieter. Its much more relaxing. Im living in a house for the first time ever. I have a backyard for the first time ever; a dog for the first time ever. So its a lot of firsts, and I love it so much. Its just so different. Its a nice change of pace (okmagazine.com).
