Pouring of the Actor statuette!

This morning Rico Rodriguez from Modern Family joined the crew of the American Fine Arts Foundry in Burbank for the pouring of the Actor statuettes!

Did you know...

  • The Actor is cast out of solid bronze!
  • Weighs approximately 13 pounds after it's completed.
  • Is made using the lost-wax method, which involves (among a lot of other things) making a wax mold of the Actor, creating a ceramic shell for the mold, then filling the shell upside down with molten bronze! Afterward, the ceramic shell is chiseled away to reveal a shiny new bronze Actor. The Actor is placed on its pedestal after a few finishing touches and is put aside for show day.
  • It takes about 40 hours of labor to produce all the Actors needed for the show.
