Speaking with PEOPLE about playing Rebecca and the end of an era, Moore said she'll miss her character and working so closely with her friends.

"I'm gonna miss my friends the most. I will miss the work obviously, but my friends and this experience, it will never be this way again. In terms of Rebecca, [I'll miss] everything. I get to play the ultimate mother who's still human and who still makes mistakes but I think there's so much to learn from her," the star said "And even the choices she makes that I don't often agree with or often agree with. All of it, I feel like I'm a little less prepared for life because I don't get to keep playing this woman."
