Modern Family star Sofia Vergara said that she’ll be happy with whatever ending the show writers decide for her character, Gloria, for their upcoming 12th and final season.
“Gloria has such a great life and such a beautiful family that I think anything that the writers have prepared for her, I'm going to be happy with,” Vergara said in an interview with BuzzFeed News’ Profile. “I'm sure that it's gonna be great, like all the seasons’ finales.”
When asked what she’ll miss most about Modern Family, Vergara said everything from working with the actor who plays her husband, Ed O'Neill, to the kids and the table reads on Wednesdays.
“It's going to be really hard,” she said.
Vergara rose to mainstream prominence in her role as Gloria Pritchett and has since used her platform to speak about Latinx representation and her activism in women’s rights.
“I was a single mother. I am a woman, and I started in a business,” Vergara said. “I started to make money, and work and opportunities came to me ... and you would be ungrateful if life presents to you with all these opportunities and you’re like, ‘Oh no, I’m not going to do it.’”
The actor recently cofounded EBY, a subscription underwear and shapewear line that is delivered straight to customers. According to the company's website, 10% of net sales go to the Seven Bar Foundation, a nonprofit that seeks to empower women through microfinancing to start their own businesses.
Vergara said she cofounded EBY to help and empower women in other countries “by giving them a little push that they needed to create their own businesses.”
Vergara is also set to costar alongside her husband, Joe Manganiello, in Bottom of the 9th, which is scheduled to be released in July. The actor said she heard about her role when Manganiello, who is also a producer of the film, was going through the script at home and it felt like a fit for her.
“I was like, I'm like, ‘I'm gonna have to do anything I need to do to get this part,’” Vergara said. “I think it's perfect for me.”
