Aubrey Anderson-Emmons stars in "Modern Family" on ABC as Lily. The 4 year old takes over the role from Jaden Hiller and Ella Hiller, the twins who traded off portraying the role of Mitch and Cam's adopted baby girl for the show's first two seasons.

"She really enjoys the process," says executive producer Steve Levitan about child actress Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. "And she looks just like Jaden and Ella! When we had her do a scene, she sounded natural—not like a cutesy kid actor."

Aubrey's mother, Amy Anderson, is a Korean American adoptee, so the role of Lily has a natural history for Aubrey. Although she also comes by her acting talent through genetics, her mother is a stand-up comedian and actress. Her father, Kent Emmons, is a successful media entrepreneur.

Aubrey loves animals, especially horses and dogs, and her favorite recreation includes swimming at the beach and listening to her favorite musical artists. She has rather unique musical tastes for a preschooler, and loves the Jackson 5. Her eyes light up at the mention of Michael Jackson's "Thriller," to which she can perform the dance moves and lyrics.

Aubrey's only sibling is her half-sister, Ashley Emmons, 21, who lives in Missouri. Her parents are no longer together, but maintain a friendly regard and are devoted to their daughter.
