Reid Ewing portrayed Haley Dunphy’s girlfriend Dylan in ‘Modern Family’

When Modern family fans first met Haley Dunphy, she was in deep love with her then-boyfriend, named Dylan. He didn’t have a stable career after graduating from high school, but Haley wasn’t worried. He was a musician, and would do great with his band on the road. In fact, he even wrote one song for Haley, entitled “In the Moonlight (Do Me.)”

In a few other programs, Dylan appeared with his band. For one gig, they needed a drummer, and after hearing, Cam said he would fill it out. That didn’t work full time, but Dylan was still pursuing his musical dream before working at Dude Ranch, then Disneyland, then as a nurse.

In Season 9, Dylan revealed that he was studying nursing, saying, “I used to heal people with my music now I just do it with drugs.” Outside Modern Family, however, Ewing was involved in a few other television programs.
