Modern Family – Mitchell Pritchett and his partner Cameron Tucker could not bring more truth to the phrase ‘opposites attract’. Mitchell Pritchett is a serious, under-the-radar type guy, which is in stark contrast to Cameron’s outgoing ways. An attorney who won an award for service in the field of environmental law, his other great achievement was adopting Vietnamese girl Lily.
His father Jay (Ed O’Neill) hasn’t always been accepting of the fact that he’s gay, but one thing’s for sure. Any child would be lucky to have such a dad as Mitchell Pritchett.
Portrayed by Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
On behalf of Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson has received five Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, as well as a nomination for a People’s Choice Award for Favourite Comedic TV Actor. Jesse has been a long-running advocate for marriage quality, and started up a business in 2012 with his husband.
