A MODERN Family child star looked completely different as he walked the red carpet three years after the ABC sitcom wrapped.
Actor Rico Rodriguez, 24, was unrecognisable from his sweet, sensitive character Manny Delgado as he arrived at the Shazam: Fury Of The Gods event this week.
Rico was just 11 when he joined the Modern Family cast.
As Manny, he was Gloria's oldest son from her first marriage.
His character was much more likeable in the earlier seasons, due to his youthful naivety.
He remained part of the cast for the season finale, which aired in 2020.

He has also let his hair grow long, and now sports a lengthy curly hairstyle.
Rico also flashed a snazzy pair of square rimmed glasses as he posed for photographs at the event.
