Eric Stonestreet - Wikipedia
He has three siblings including Pameron "Pam". Many of Cam's anecdotes come from his life in the farm, including the usual tornadoes, and the animals. When he was 10, Cam's Halloween was traumatized when his friend Timmy blamed him for the entire bucket of candies that he took. This caused Cam to wet himself in front of the other kids and got chased around dressed as Quasimodo " Halloween ".
Some actors on TV shows tend to get more attention than others. Even though Cam is a beloved member of the Pritchett-Dunphy clan, the man who brings the character to life is less well-known than costars like Julie Bowen Claire and Sarah Hyland Haley. So, is Eric Stonestreet married? Eric Stonestreet also met a pediatric nurse named Lindsay Schweitzer, who he started dating after the event according to a report from People. Stonestreet later opened up about the special woman in his life.
Although he is straight, Stonestreet said playing a gay role on such a high-profile TV series has garnered him admiration from male fans. On a more serious note, Stonestreet said that while playing Cam on "Modern Family" for five seasons didn't change the way he thought about the community, he nonetheless has "more compassion and more empathy" for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender LGBT people than he did before the show.
