Video: Scandal's Kerry Washington on What Inquiring Fans Want to Know

How has leading a popular television series changed the way fans approach Kerry Washington? The film-now-TV star spent a few fun moments telling us, during her Emmy® magazine cover shoot. Watch.

Acclaimed actress Kerry Washington had long been a familiar face to film fans by the time über-storyteller Shonda Rhimes scooped her up to lead ABC's formidable Scandal ensemble.

Fans recognize the Bronx, NY-born beauty from her turns in an array of films — from Oscar contenders Ray, Django and The Last King of Scotland to appearances in such fan favorites as Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Fantastic Four. Check out how Washington says becoming "Olivia Pope" has changed the way many fans engage her now. Watch:



Celebrity photographer Sarah McColgan captured both soft and fierce sides of Kerry Washington, elegantly draped in a hand-cut leather gown designed by Ram Al Ali for the cover of Emmy® issue number 5, plus a leopard suit by Rachel Zoe, Vera Wang vest and more for the stunning pictorial feature inside.

The magazine is available for sale in digital editions for iPad and Android tablets, desktop and more devices. Print edition sold separately.
