News that ABC has cancelled the wildly popular sitcom Ugly Betty, was a shock to the show’s star, Mark Indelicato! He tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY,“It’s been an amazing four years. I’ve learned so much from the wonderful actors I have worked with, it’s sad to see this come so unexpectedly, but I think that we all recognize the tremendous work that we have done, and am very grateful for that.”
But as composed as he sounds, Mark, who plays Justin Suarez, the nephew of America Ferrera‘s character Betty Suarez, is really shocked and sad, according to a friend of his. “We have seen Mark literally grow up on Ugly Betty these past four years,” said the friend.
“He has truly grown as an actor and as a young man. I’m really excited to see what comes next for him after the show ends. He turns 16 this year and has an entire career ahead of him. I know he will miss the relationships and bonds he developed seeing the same people every day, but they have formed really wonderful friendships that I don’t see why won’t continue into the next phase of his life and career.”
USA Today reports that the switching of the show from Thursday to Friday and then to Wednesday is what ultimately led to a decrease in viewership. Are you sad about Ugly Betty like Mark is? —Corynne Steindler
