Plana who plays Bettys [America Ferrera] dad, Ignacio Suarez says when it comes to his wardrobe for the show, his threads play second fiddle to some of his co-stars more glamorous gear.
Says Plana: The wardrobe on Ugly Betty is phenomenal, and they may spend half a million dollars on it, but theyll spend $50 on me! My wardrobe comes from the nearest thrift shop. Theyre like, No, Tony, that sweater doesnt look old enough. Lets get something a bit older, a little mustier, smellier; There are a lot of mothballs around my wardrobe!
Still, Plana doesnt mind sporting the occasional Ugly Betty hand-me-down off-screen as long as its stylin and not from his own wardrobe.
Plana explains, When I have events I always sneak into the wardrobe department to borrow stuff. I think, Okay, lets try something fun. They dress me up real cool but they tell me Im going to have to give it back and Im like, This isnt fair! Why cant Ignacio look like this?
Season two of Ugly Betty premieres September 27 on ABC.
