Betty's father, Ignacio, had a turbulent third season on Ugly Betty. He spent most of it recovering from a heart attack, and his girlfriend, Elena, left town for a nursing job. Nevertheless, Tony Plana, who plays the Suarez patriarch, says Ignacio remains optimistic and is ready for whatever comes his way. Plana tells TVGuide.com how Ignacio's personal life has changed, where he'll be working this season and how his family is evolving before his very eyes.
TVGuide.com: How are things going for Ignacio now that he's a citizen and has a new lease on life?
Tony Plana: He's got quite a crazy family still, but also his horizons have expanded in terms of his personal life — especially after his heart attack.

Thanks for your comments and messages again. I've had busy week and before we get into Dancing, I want to mention a very important event I went to last week.
I had the privilege of attending the Free the Slaves Freedom Awards and it was amazing! I had no idea what to expect going into it. I was totally blind to things like this — modern-day slavery.
