“I do love UCLA, but at the moment I’m taking a break from it so I can continue to pursue my career and also try to have a little bit more of a life because I’ve been so busy,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
While Modern Family unfortunately is slated to end after its 10th season next year, Ariel, who stars in the sitcom, has also been making movies, and is currently in the film, The Last Movie Star.
The 20-year-old continued, “That’s really it at the moment. But I think education’s really important. I love being there. I love learning. I will continue to keep learning.”
And with Modern Family ending, Ariel says she’s ready to take on other roles, preferably on the big screen. “Really anything that comes my way that speaks to me or feels rights, something, a new character I haven’t done before,” she explained.
“I’m pretty open. I like doing different things. I like trying things, so for me, it’s really whatever happens.”
