'Ugly Betty' Cast Emotional as Series End Approaches

Series regular Michael Urie opens up about the waterworks on set as ABC's Ugly Betty tapes its final episodes

Bye, Bye, Betty! As ABC's Emmy-winning Ugly Betty tapes its last episodes, Michael Urie -- Mode magazine's flamboyant Marc St. James -- tells the New York Post, "Oh god, I've been on the verge of tears for a week." And his upcoming final moments with a certain castmate might just send him over the edge.

"It's going to be so hard to film my last scene with Vanessa [Williams], I'm going to be a mess for that." 

Urie, 29, went on to tell the Post that "everyone was a little teary" recently, at the cast's second-to-last table read and "We've all started acknowledging 'this is our last this, this is the last time we'll do that.'"

The actor (currently starring off-Broadway in The Temperamentals) confessed he doesn't know how the show will wrap up, but suggested a scenario for how he'd like to see things end. "I would love for Marc to find someone, but what I really want is for Marc and Wilhelmina's relationship to continue professionally. More than anything else, I feel that they belong together at Mode, running things."

Betty's departure isn't just affecting its own actors, though. Christina Applegate -- who starred on ABC's equally beloved but ultimately doomed, Samantha Who? -- tweeted her disappointment about the show's end and its star America Ferrera: "Watching Ugly Betty tonight and just really confused that it has been cancelled! America my friend, you are amazing!

The final episode of Ugly Betty airs April 14 on ABC.
