Producers have reportedly issued a casting notice for an "Asian, 3- to 4-year-old daughter of Mitchell and Cameron." Series star Jesse Tyler Ferguson hinted to E! about a possible recast, especially since Season 3 will feature a walking, talking Lily.
"Lily will definitely be more prominent in season three," he said. "It's interesting with children because we can't force this 2 and a half-year-old child to start speaking, and we don't know if the twins who play Lily are inclined toward acting, so maybe we'll cast another older child who can talk and who wants to be an actress to play Lily."
Recasting babies, especially to age characters, is common practice on sitcoms. On 'Bewitched,' Tabitha was played by Cynthia Black, Heidi and Laura Gentry, Tamar and Julie Young and Diane Murphy until Erin Murphy ultimately took the lead role on the sitcom.
