In an interview with NYLON, the actress shared that she really enjoyed her time on set of You.

"Everyone there was just so delightful and professional and exceptional at what they do. Being in that environment was super beneficial for me, especially being on a set where you were given creative freedom or your voice was heard,” she said.

She also admitted that she was nervous at first because she hadn't acted for a while.

“But I remember being extremely, extremely nervous because I had only done the Disney acting for the last four years of my life; I felt like I had completely forgotten how to act.”

Before her stint on Netflix, she was first a Disney star in Stuck in the Middle, where she played kid inventor Harley Diaz.

The live-action sitcom aired from 2016-2018. It was the second Disney show that featured a Latino family, with the first being Selena Gomez's Wizards of Waverly Place.

While Ortega may have been nervous coming out of Disney, she didn't have a hard time booking new projects.

As for her comeback in You, Ortega shared that she would love to return as Ellie in the upcoming seasons.

“There was talk but it was just scheduling conflicts and situations that it just wasn’t possible at the time,” Ortega said, explaining why she wasn't on season 3. But, the actress confirms that she would love to come back to reprise her role. “I would love, love to be back on that set.”

Last season, it was revealed that Joe was still sending Ellie money allowance. So, it's definitely not impossible for the show to reunite the two in the upcoming seasons.
