Now, in case you need a reminder, Becki's main character was Betty's nemesis Amanda - Mode magazine's receptionist. But she also played Ruthie, the assistant editor of MYW magazine who worked under Sofia.

Speaking about playing two roles, Becki said at the time: "I was like, 'Should I do this?' And then I was like, 'Yes, I have to.' Sadly enough, I didn't have to go through much hair and makeup to be Ruthie. Amanda takes a while... Ruthie? Not so much. But I think Ruthie's hot."

In other very important Ugly Betty news, rumours have emerged that the show could be making a return after one of the stars revealed it could be set to have a comeback.

Speaking to TV Tonight, Eric Mabius (who played Daniel Meade) was asked if there would ever be a reboot show.

He said: "I don’t know. There’s something being discussed, but I’m not at liberty to say. We had an abrupt ending and I think that we all felt that we didn’t have enough time to finish telling the stories that needed to be told.

"I think Ugly Betty was ahead of its time and I think that it would be more timely right now than ever.

"I continue to be proud of that, to be a part of such talent. It was probably the truest work family I’ve ever had. Hopefully with enough groundswell, they may even bring the show back for a little bit."

Well this sounds so promising!
