THR recently interviewed actor Daren Kagasoff (Ricky on The Secret Life of the American Teenager) about the ABC Family show’s last episode.
Kagasoff wants the viewers to have a sense of closure and says, “It’s been five years and the show has had its ups and downs with relationships and people coming on the show and off the show. Of course, you want the audience to be happy, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to make TV exciting.”
He also shares that his character’s fate came as a complete surprise.
Of the final day of shooting, Kagasoff recalls that it was ver emotional and notes, “It was a different tone from the other episodes because I think we knew we were done. The way that Brenda wrote this final episode is heartbreaking. I remember reading it and [I had] that sense of “it’s really over.” Everybody was really serious, we wanted to do the best work because in this business, you never know what your next job is going to be. You’re only as good as your last project, so right now I’m only as good as my last episode on Secret Life.”
