OTRC: Teri Hatcher gets emotional about 'Desperate Housewives' finale (Video)

Teri Hatcher talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at an April 2012 Wisteria Lane Block party about the finale of 'Desperate Housewives.'

Teri Hatcher gets emotional when talking about the end of her show "Desperate Housewives."

The 47-year-old has starred on the show for all of its eight seasons as Susan Delfino, a sassy and competitive romantic. The actress gushed to OnTheRedCarpet.com about how she'll not only miss the people, but the work as well.

"It's a bigger deal than you think it's going to be," Hatcher said about the show finale at a recent "Wisteria Lane Block Party" event on the show's set at Universal Studios. "We've had a long time to process our goodbye. It's a big deal. There's nothing about this job that I haven't honored and loved, the people that I work with every day, the laughs that we've had here, the physical space ... is such a gorgeous place to work. I mean, driving onto the lot, the security guards I've gotten to know.

"Just having a home and having a job - I think that's something, actually, that a lot of people relate to," she added. "Just the idea of having a regular job that you go to on some consistent basis. I mean, this is a pretty fancy job but it's ... to just be the little person I was, raised in Northern California, having a job is a really great thing ... with people you love. Don't make me cry."

In August 2011 it was announced that the show was set to end after eight seasons. The series, which also stars Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman as residents of Wisteria Lane, debuted in 2004. The finale airs on May 13.

Hatcher is known for her role in films such as "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Coraline." The actress also appeared on the 90s television show "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman."
