Rico Rodriguez is making us melt with what he said about older and only sister Raini.
In a recent interview, the 18-year-old Modern Family actor dished about the future of his on-screen career and gives full credit to Raini for where he is today.
“I just wanted to follow suit,” he shared about watching her in her own projects. “I went to acting classes and finally broke out of my shell. When I was auditioning for Modern Family, [Raini] was right there helping me. I give her all of the credit because she helped me get the job because she’s so smart in the sense that she knows how to talk to people.”
He added, “She knows me so well that she’s able to work with me, so I owe her everything—not just because she’s my sister, but because she everything’s she’s done for me throughout my life.”
