An Ugly Betty film could soon be in the works, actress Ana Ortiz has hinted.

The finale of the hit TV show aired in the US this week, but the 39-year-old actress, who plays Betty's elder sister Hilda, said it may not quite be the end of fashion assistant Betty Suarez (America Ferrera).

"There may be a movie - it's something that we've been talking about and it's something that America would really love to do," she told Latina.com.

"That woman has so much determination that I can't imagine anything she puts her mind to not getting done."

For Ana, getting the chance to be in Ugly Betty has been amazing.

"Ugly Betty has been the most important thing I've ever done, easily," she said. "I was able to do more with one character than I can ever imagine doing again - Hilda was hilariously funny and emotionally deep."

She revealed how the cast members plan to keep their close bond.

"I'm hanging out with Mark Indelicato (son Justin) on Tuesday, and I'm seeing America on Friday. I'm still hanging out with all of these people. This is family for life!" Ana added.
