Eva Longoria is happy to be remembered for playing Gabrielle Solis on Desperate Housewives.

The 37-year-old actress played the charismatic mother-and-wife on the hit series, which recently ended after eight seasons.

Longoria now hopes to try her hand at a range of different roles now she's wrapped up filming on the program, but insists being famed for her role as Gabrielle isn't all bad.

"Since Desperate Housewives finished, I've been looking at roles that are very different to Gabrielle. But I loved playing her and I'm happy if people remember me for that," she's told British magazine Closer.

Despite splitting from her boyfriend Eduardo Cruz, Longoria still relishes the idea of starting her own family one day.

"I would love to be a mother and have a family of my own. I have friends with children, so I know I love spending time with kids. And of course, I'm a godmother to Vic's (Victoria Beckham) daughter Harper, who's the most adorable thing ever!"
