Thats the sports scoop from series star Ana Ortiz, who says all of the shows stars are so into the summer games, they cant concentrate on their scripts.
Ortiz who plays Hilda Suarez on Ugly Betty is so obsessed with the Olympics that she cant focus at work because she wants to watch TV every second.
She laughs, In between takes were all literally running to our dressing rooms to watch the Olympics on TV. I love gymnastics, but swimming has now become my obsession. Michael Phelps is incredible and Dara Torres the 41- year-old swimmer oh my God, shes such an inspiration!
Ortizs co-star, Mark Indelicato, who plays her son on Ugly Betty, is in the same boat and also fanatically follows the sports.
He says, I really loved the synchronized diving. We kept saying they all look like twins because they dive at the same pace. Its so crazy!
