Sarah Hyland not attending SAG Awards due to ‘Health Reasons’

Hyland informed fans just hours before the SAG awards that she would not be attending the event.

She captioned a photo on Instagram of her boyfriend and her kissing at last year’s SAG Awards and said “Sad to say I will not be attending the SAG awards today for some health reasons. So I leave you all with an adorable picture from last years @sagawards. P.S. You know my dress was gonna be turned too.”

The 26-year-old cast member of Modern Family was nominated for the Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the awards show.

Hyland has often been upfront about her health issues, revealing in 2012 that she had a kidney transplant due to her life long battle with dysplasia. She explained that in 2015 in an interview with Seventeen magazine, that her mom was always a strong supporter of her. She said, “I (she) was born with so many health issues that doctors told my mother I would never have a normal life. And she said, ‘You’re right, she won’t – but it won’t be because of her health.'”

Although she was not at her best, she didn’t forget to wish her co-star Ariel Winter, a happy birthday on Instagram. She said “Happy 19th Birthday to the little sister I always wanted but never had. I know 19 is the most useless age as you get older but think of it as one year closer to your 20s! Love you so much @arielwinter.”
