Sofia Vergara has suggested that the Modern Family stars are all similar to their characters on the show.

Vergara told Redbook that she shares several traits with her character Gloria.

"I think I'm the most similar [to my character]," she said. "I'm Latin, I have an accent, I have a kid from a previous marriage and I'm Colombian."

Vergara explained that Julie Bowen is like Claire as "she's very into doing things perfectly", adding: "She's neurotic, in a good way. I think she and I get along so well because we're very different... There's no competition of any kind, which is what happens sometimes with women."

Vergara claimed that Ty Burrell is "exactly Phil" and said: "Rico [Rodriguez], who plays my son, says he's not at all like Manny, but we all think he is - he's an old soul."

Vergara added that Eric Stonestreet is the least similar to his character, saying: "Eric plays a gay guy and he's not gay, so that's the most different."

Vergara, Bowen, Stonestreet, Burrell, Ed O'Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have all been nominated for this year's Emmy Awards.

Modern Family will return for its third season on September 21 on ABC.
