GLAMOUR award winner Kerry Washington Talks Acting
You want compulsive TV drama, a mesmerising leading woman and a working wardrobe to die for?Scandal star Kerry Washington has it handled. “When I read Ray for the first time, I had just quit. When I read The Last King Of Scotland, I had just quit,” she recalls with a laugh. “I hadn’t quite quit when I read Scandal, but I was feeling really unfulfilled as an actor.” Happily for us, the power of a good script always tempts her back to acting, which is how she ended up stepping into the shoes of Olivia Pope back in 2012. If you’re aware of the soap-y, shouty, Washington DC-set drama, you’re almost certainly a fan, and that’s primarily Kerry’s doing. As a crisis manager with the White House’s great and good on her speed dial, Olivia specialises in solving (or burying) the sort of career-ruining shenanigans that super-injunctions were invented for – all while strutting around in the outfits of your dreams. “I wasn’t really looking to do a TV project, because it takes up so much of the year, and then I read the script and it was one of the best things I’d ever read,” she explains. “I really loved this character from that moment. I love that who she is privately and who she is publicly are so vastly different.”
