Ashley Jensen, Judith Light, Ugly Betty


According to sources, one of Ugly Betty's main castmembers (a regular since season one) has asked to leave the ABC series, and producers are now planning to write her out toward the end of this season. Ruh-roh.

And that's not all: I'm told another character you know and love is going to be killed off this season.

So which two characters are leaving? Here's the exclusive dish...

Ashley Jensen

According to sources connected to the series, the fantastic Ashley Jensen, who plays Betty's BFF Christina and is also well-known to you Extras fans, is the series regular who is expected to leave Ugly Betty this season.

I'm told Ashley asked to be released from her contract; the show's rep declined to comment, saying ABC does not comment on actors' contracts.

According to a source who works on the show, Ashley is not expected back as a series regular for Betty's fourth season in the fall. No word yet on how her character will make her exit—as you fans know, she's currently knocked up with Wilhelmina's spawn in order to get money to help save her husband's life. And of course, anything is possible on this show.

As for the second character who will be killed off, it's someone who just came on board this season and whom the fans—and a certain Meade—fancy.

And no, despite the photo above it is not Judith Light.

Guesses? The comments are all yours for the taking!
