“Ugly Betty” fans are definitely having a hard time with the show’s cancellation, but what if you played its title character?
“It’s going to be hard to say goodbye,” America Ferrera tells NBC. “But it will always be such an incredible period of my life. I’m so proud of what we’ve done.”
Over the course of its four seasons, the show has made Ferrera a star and earned her a Golden Globe and an Emmy.
“It’s my family,” Ferrera, 25, says. “It’s been the last four years of my life in the most intense way. We work, at the very least, twelve hour days, five days a week, 10 months out of the year, for four years in a row.”
Ferrera was recently at Sundance promoting her film “The Dry Land.” In her next film, “Our Family Wedding,” Ferrera plays one-half of a newly engaged couple whose fathers are embroiled in a longtime feud. It opens on March 12.
When asked if she’d consider doing another TV show, Ferrera jokingly answered: “I would entertain sleeping for three months.”
The “Ugly Betty” series finale will air on Wednesday, April 14.
Is this season’s creative upswing making it hard for you to say adios?
