Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet draws inspiration for his camp character Cameron Tucker from an unusual source – his mum.
“I sort of grounded the character in my mum – she loves it, loves every square inch of it!” Eric laughed, speaking during a break from filming the mockumentary-style comedy in Hollywood.
“Playing other characters, people would always say I reminded them of my brother or my dad or whatever so it was a real treat to be able to say ‘not only did I get the part, but mum I based the character a little bit on you’ and she was like ‘oh my god!’”
