Kerry Washington Doesn't Get a Heads Up on 'Scandal' Storyline
Here is what the 39-year-old Scandal actress had to share with the mag:
On if Shonda Rhimes tells her Scandal storylines in advance: “No. I had no idea that the abortion scene was coming until I turned the page at the table read and read it out loud with everybody else.”
On Hillary Clinton stopping by set: “I’m really close to the campaign. … Hillary was in town for a fundraiser, and Tony [Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant] and I thought we might get off work in time to go, but we didn’t. So I emailed Huma [Abedin, Clinton’s longtime aide] and said, “Why don’t you guys come here?” And they were able to. It was very surreal, because at some point you couldn’t tell the difference between our pretend Secret Service on the show, and the real Secret Service walking on the set.”
Tony Goldwyn on next season possibly being the last: “I’m assuming at the end of next season, my presidency will be finished. So what happens to Scandal once there’s a new president? Either that’s the end or Shonda has something in mind that may or may not include me, a whole other direction.”
