The cast was relatively unknown prior to signing on for the series. Breakout stars America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Becki Newton and Mark Indelicato have received widespread praise for their thought-provoking roles. Each character on the show had a complex history, making them personable and helping them to connect with a wide range of viewers.
The final episode brought the show full circle. Title star Betty Suarez (Ferrera) went from ugly to pretty on the outside, but her morals and sunny outlook remained unchanged. Flamboyant assistant Marc St. James (Urie) finally climbed up the Mode magazine ladder and found out that life is about more than playing games and capitalizing on others' pain. Airhead Amanda Tannen Sommers (Newton) finally cleaned up her act, found her long lost father, and saw her hard partying lifestyle settle down. And finally, Betty's nephew Justin (Indelicato) revealed he was gay and found love with theatre friend Austin.
