what is Kerry Washington favorite color?


Kerry you're a beautiful woman and a amazing actress's!!! My question is you play the character of Olivia Pope so well. Does her character hit close to home for you in your everyday life, do you carry that I'm every woman attitude?:)


@valentina. I completely agree with you. lol, I don't understand how Quinn can be Liv and Fitz's daughter. Their affair is a couple years old. Quinn is significantly older than that. Plus, Olivia is probably only a few years older than Quinn.


Hi Kerry, Firstly, Thanks for taking our questions and I Love Scandal :) 1. I read 208 is THE episode (can't wait to see it) How about shooting it? 2. I saw many of your movies and I read somewhere that you keep one thing of each of your characters. What you kept of Olivia Pope or what do you want to keep?


@jjkramer73 I'm confused as to how you think that would even work out? Quinn and Liv are practically the SAME age so it'll be impossible for Quinn to ever be her kid. I'm honestly genuinely confused right now..


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!!! My question deals with the relationship between Olivia and Quinn. What do you think about the writers making Quinn the daughter of Olivia and Fitz? That would be an AMAZING season ending surprise!!! Am I right??? Are Olivia and Fitz the birth parents of Quinn???


Hi Kerry!
I have to say that I love you and I love this show so much. I have to watch it at lease once a day and I keep on converting people to become Gladiators. LOL
My question is What did Olivia get out of the deal with tampering with the voting machines and will we ever see or hear anything about Olivias family?


Hi Kerry!!!
You and Scandal are our two favorite things IN LIFE. We can't wait for Thursdays to have our weekly 'Scandal' viewing party with our friends in our dorm lounge. We have a ton of questions: 1.You seem like you're a perfect person so on a scale of 1 to 10 how proud are your parents of you? 2.We love Fitz (even if he is a jerk face sometimes), but we love Edison too. Will we find out more of his and Olivia’s back story? Will it ever click for Edison that Olivia was with the President? 3.Lark is from DC and wants to know where you think Olivia’s favorite place is to hang out in the District? 4.Kristine is in madly in love with Huck, will we find out more of his back story? Kristine strongly dislikes Quinn (thinks she's ungrateful) do you think Quinn has a right to have so many questions? 5.Will we ever find out why Olivia got Harrison out of jail? / Why is Harrison so scared of guns? 6.Does Olivia have a family? Will she ever talk about them? Will we ever see them? 7.We hated Abby in the first couple episodes of this season for being so annoying but now we feel so badly for the girl! Does Olivia feel badly about breaking up her relationship? Or does Olivia just do things for the greater good with no real regard for the feelings of her associates? Because she seems like she cares but then she does mean stuff anyway. We hope you enjoyed these questions, thank you so much for your time! P.S.
Tell the cast and our Queen, Shonda, we love them too.


Hi Kerry, Great show. You are incredible as Olivia Pope. Love the whole cast. Also love your December magazine covers. Just saw the L.A. Confidential cover and behind the scenes video from the photo shoot. Very classy - old style Hollywood. Amazing. You are one of the hardest working women in Hollywood. What do you like to do during your downtime? Also, re your character - how are you similar to and different from Olivia Pope?


Firstly, it's unbelievably nice that you're doing this and live tweet during every scandal episode! 1. Will there be any good Olitz scenes before the hiatus that are NOT flashbacks? 2. When will we learn more about Oliva's past? 3. Who's your favourite actor to share a scene with? 4. On a more personal note, what's your dog called? 5. Please go on the Ellen show! It'd be amazing! 6. Could you maybe do a UK live tweet for the season 1 finale? I love scandal and I'm completely obsessed with it, I'm starting to convert average citizens into Gladiators in Suits! Even got a couple of my teachers hooked!

Scandal Quotes

There is no us! There is no this! There is no Vermont! There is no jam! There's no future. Not anymore.

Olivia [to Fitz]

Olivia: I don't want normal, and easy, and simple. I want..
Edison: What? What do you want, Olivia?
Olivia: I want painful, difficult, devastating, life-changing, extraordinary love. Don't you want that, too?
Edison: Love is not supposed to be painful or devastating. Love isn't supposed to hurt, Liv.
