Tonight’s a big night for Kerry Washington…even though she’s had many special evenings in her life. What’s the deal? She’s making her TV premiere in the premiere of ABC’s Scandal. The accomplished actress is known for her roles as Ray Charles’s wife in the film Ray, as Idi Amin’s wife in The Last King of Scotland, and as Alicia Masters, love interest of Ben Grimm, The Thing, in the live-action Fantastic Four films. She has also starred in the critically acclaimed independent films Our Song and The Dead Girl.
Now in her first TV series, Ms. Washington plays Olivia Pope, an expert fixer for the rich, famous and powerful. Perez Hilton has a clip of Scandal on his site, and he describes it as “a show revolving around a combination of the relationship drama and love troubles, set in the fast-paced world of high-level crisis management.”
No matter how good or bad the story is, we know the movie/TV star will wear some great hairstyles. When she’s at work, Kerry’s Olivia will stick with a smooth, executive look. If she ever gets a chance to relax, we hope to see the luscious curls that Ms. Washington has worn in movies and real life.
