Maura Tierney is begging ER bosses to kill off her character before the long-running show comes to an end, but they are refusing to let Dr. Abby Lockhart die.

Network bosses recently announced ER will end after one more season, and Tierney is keen to go out with a bang.

But she claims network chiefs want her character to live on, despite her pleas.

She tells AOL Movies, "I want them to kill me. And they won't. They refused to kill Abby."

Meanwhile, Tierney applauds the decision to call time on the hugely successful medical drama, adding, "I think it's a great thing for the cast and the crew. And I think it is a great thing that (creator) John Wells and all the rest of the writers know that's it's ending and have time to prepare for it and finish it in a way that's thoughtful."
