Ariel Winter shared this photo outside of Alex Dunphy's trailer:

Anyway, in a recent interview on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”, Ty Burrell admitted that while it's hard to say goodbye after 11 years, there is something he's NOT going to miss about playing Phil Dunphy.

It may surprise you!

"How hard is it gonna be for you to let Phil Dunphy go?," Stephen asked.

"Well, a lot of it is hard because it's about the relationships," he began. "You see each other every day."

"But the parts that I won't miss so much, maybe about the way people sort of assume that you are the character," he said.

He explained that it has been difficult not to take his work home with him — so to speak.

“I’ve been lucky enough to do a ton of physical comedy over the last 11 years," he said.

"And I genuinely love it," he added.

"But this kind of curious thing has happened over that time".

“I’m actually a clumsy person… and well, season five maybe, I would trip on a curb," he said.

"Out in the world!," he added. "And somebody would go like, ‘Yeah!,'"

"Or I’d take even more of a stumble and people would be like, ‘Yeah, that guy!’”

"And this is a true story," he said. "On Friday night of this past weekend — just three days ago, I was out with my family for dinner".

"Playing tag on the way home with my daughters on the sidewalk, I trip on a metal grate. at full speed."

"And I took a hard fall," he continued. "I look up, and my own family is looking at me like, 'Daddy just loves attention.'"
