Ugly Betty: The Movie? It just might happen, according to actress Ana Ortiz.

The ABC show’s finale aired Wednesday night, but that doesn’t mean it’s over for good. Ortiz, who played Betty’s sister Hilda Suarez, said the series may have the big screen in its future.

“There may be a movie,” Ortiz tells “It’s something that we’ve been talking about and it’s something that Ugly Betty star America Ferrera would really love to do. That woman has so much determination that I can’t imagine anything she puts her mind to not getting done.”

And Ortiz, 39, is totally up for playing Hilda again.

Ugly Betty has been the most important thing I’ve ever done, easily,” she says. “I was able to do more with one character than I can ever imagine doing again — Hilda was hilariously funny and emotionally deep.” –Catherine Donaldson-Evans
