Actress Sofía Vergara continues to support same-sex marriage.

In a Spanish-language interview with Terra.com last week, the Modern Family actress said: 'I think we need to respect each other, support each other and ensure each other's well-being'.

The Colombian actress and model has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, two Primetime Emmys and three Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on Modern Family.

In 2010 Vergara filmed a public service campaign for GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
