Kerry Washington Talks Olivia Pope & Spills 'Scandal' Season 3 Secrets

Kerry Washington

In a new interview with New York Post‘s Mary Murphy, Kerry Washington spills a few secrets about the upcoming season of Scandal.

Check out an excerpt from her interview. WARNING: Spoiler ahead:

Inside the huge soundstage, a very serious scene in the Pope & Associates boardroom is under way. Washington has transformed herself into Olivia Pope, who intimidates nearly everyone else on the show. She’s also a fashion plate — today she’s wearing a navy suit by Alexander McQueen.

As usual, Olivia is plagued by problems, the biggest of which is what to do now that she has been outed as the president’s mistress. How is she going to get out of this very public jam?

The answer appears to come in the scene being filmed.

A pretty blonde has been hired to confess on live television that she is sleeping with the commander in chief.

Olivia Pope stops the TV interview, rushing into her office to call the president. Goldwyn isn’t really on the other line, so he can’t hear Washington when she yells, “You mother-#!*#@!”

The crew cracks up.

Kerry Washington has a sense of humor! Who knew? You just don’t expect it from one of the most respected TV actresses of the year.
