Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet releases his inner animal

When we watch Cam he’s so believable - all I wanted to do was play a great character on TV

– Eric Stonestreet

The Emmy award winning actor Eric Stonestreet who plays Modern Family's Cam is set to star in new animated film The Secret Life of Pets.

The groundbreaking show Modern Family has helped to break down barriers. Eric says it's hard to believe the show has been running for seven series.

It's helping to change perspectives. 'They tell us that their parents were maybe more accepting of them coming out as being gay than they thought they would have.'

When Modern Family came along, comedy was in a snarky mean-spirited place. With Modern Family, hopefully you feel nice at the end

She plays Galina "Red" Reznikov. 'I do love her,' she of her formidable character. 'Fiesty's complimentary, she's rather frightening.'

The cast all love their characters: 'We're captivated by our own characters. We know how lucky we are.' That's the appeal of Orange Is The New Black: 'We're used to watching television looking at people so far above us that we can't possibly relate to them, and anyway why would you want to? They're too perfect to look at, too perfect to listen to!'

Her new book: It's All Going Wonderfully Well is out now, and details his long battle with Lewy body disease, an aggressive form of Parkinson's.

Philip Glenister thrills in new series Outcast

It’s very character driven. It’s not just shock horror to scare the pants off the audience - it's cleverer than that

– Philip Glenister

Star of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes Phillip Glenister is no stranger to the supernatural. And his show might just be his scariest yet. If zombies in The Walking Dead aren't scary enough then Outcast is the show for you.

Philip talks about his new role as Reverend Andersen in new thriller series Outcast, which has already been renewed for a second series.

The new show is based on a comic book by Robert Kirkman. Philip says that he's 'very proud of it' the new series, is dark and is 'about a lot of broken souls' but it doesn't feel like a horror show. He says he's 'It is a bit scary but it is a bit weird.'

In it, he dons a 'cracking' American accent and says he stayed in the accent all the time: 'It was a natural thing to do. We had a great dialect coach... It was fun staying in the accent and wandering around the supermarket store saying 'Have a great day!''

Filming in America, he says that tea is what he misses most from the UK and that he's been giving tea demonstrations to make sure his brew's just right.

With a second series commissioned, Lorraine wants to know if he'll be relocating the America - we'd be very sad to see him go! Luckily he's staying put. 'My home is here, I love the seasons.'
