Wednesday night’s episode of “Modern Family” will feature 8-year-old transgender child actor, Jackson Millarker.

In the episode titled, “A Stereotypical Day,” Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) has her transgender friend, Tom, over for a playdate.

Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are filled with pride as they watched their open and accepting child play with her friend.

Unfortunately, things go left when Lily insults Tom and her parents use the incident as a teachable moment.

Ryan Case, who is directing the episode, introduced Jackson in a post on her Instagram page.

She gushed:

This is Jackson Millarker. He’s 8 years old, from Atlanta, and just happens to be transgender. He plays Lily’s friend Tom in this week’s Modern Family and he’s wonderful. One of the many reasons I love being a part of this show. ❤️??

 

 

“A Stereotypical Day” airs on Wednesday at 9/8c on ABC.
