Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has started filming a new fairytale drama series in Ireland.

Hyland, who is best known for her role as Haley Dunphy in Modern Family, will be playing Princess Rose in the upcoming ABC series, Epic.

Epic has been described as a romantic anthology series that reimagines classic fairytales for the modern audience.

The show comes from Once Upon A Time writer Brigitte Hales, with the creators of the popular ABC fairytale series, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, joining the Epic team as producers.

The show has just commenced filming at Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin’s outskirts, which many will recognise as the location of David and Victoria Beckham’s wedding in 1999.

The 30-year-old actress has been staying in Ireland for the past month and has shared some photos from the Epic set.

In an Instagram post, Sarah posed beside a white horse and wrote: “A Rose and her steed: An EPIC Series... maybe.

“So excited to be working on a project for the first time in over a year! I’ve already been overseas for a month with the most amazing cast, we started shooting yesterday, and let’s just say that this is going to be... EPIC.”

The Manhattan native’s co-star, theatre veteran Nick Dunning, also shared a snap of them smiling in their costumes and Sarah looked regal with a hairstyle fit for a princess.

Nick tweeted: “And then he got a brand new surrogate daughter! #disney #ModernFamily #actorslife #stunningdunning.”

Nick’s role in the upcoming series has yet to be confirmed, but his social media post hints that he will be playing Hyland’s father in the drama.

Brittany O’Grady and Eleanor Fanyinka are also billed to star in Epic, which is set to premiere on ABC in America later this year.
