Modern Family’s Luke is Finally a Man

Child (now, adult) actor Nolan Gould turns 18 today, October 28. He is best known for playing the role of Luke Dunphy in the sitcom Modern Family, for which he won a Screen Actors Guild Award. Contrary to his 'dumb' character in the series, Nolan is actually a really smart kid. He claimed on Ellen Degeneres` show, that he is a member of MENSA (the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world) and has an IQ of 150. He graduated from high school at the age of 13 and has also taken college classes. The genius plays the double bass, banjo, didgeridoo, mandolin, and even sitar.

The talented kid began his career at the age of 3, with commercials and eventually, films. He now earns over $70,000 per episode, in the current season of Modern Family. How cool is that?! Today, as he turns 18, let's have a look at his best moments from the show, back when he was a child. His father, Phil Dunphy (played by Ty Burrell), seems proud of most of them.
