Ferrera stars in her final episode of Ugly Betty, which ABC cancels after four seasons. "I never really pictured myself being on television. I couldn’t imagine a world coming along that would entice me enough to sign away years and years of my life to one character," she tells Parade. "Then Betty came around. I was 21 when I started and I’ve learned so much and grown so much as a person."
A Surprise Wedding
Wearing a dress by Amsale's Christos label, Ferrera, 27, ties the knot with Ryan Piers Williams, 30, in "an intimate setting amongst close friends and family," her rep tells PEOPLE. "We kind of connected from the get-go on that professional level and that was something that really drew us to each other," the actress told PEOPLE after her engagement.
