However, what do you know about her true personality? Here, some clues. Listen to her:

Scandal Star Kerry Washington

Active: I wouldn’t just come home from school and watch TV everyday, they had me involved in lots of local theatre. I was a very dramatic, talkative child. And that was part of my mother’s creative solution – to put me in workshops and classes and children’s theatre programmes.

Optimist: I think sometimes in life we want to ignore the problems of society and just think about the good. I believe in positive thinking and affirmative living, I also think it’s really important to remember all of our disenfranchised members of society.

Creative: About a year ago I got really exhausted from reading bad scripts and I know that I am a writer and that I have stories to tell, so I thought, ‘Let’s do this!’ So I’m co-writing a screenplay now with another screenwriter and loving it. Absolutely loving it. And I would like to be the producer on the project and of course the lead is me.

Smart: I really love research. It’s one of the things I love most about my job. I feel like it’s me in the lab cooking up the character.

Idealist: Today there are people trying to take away rights that our mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers fought for: our right to vote, our right to choose, affordable quality education, equal pay, access to health care. We the people can’t let that happen.

Combatant: People don’t think about the fact that when Barack Obama’s parents had him – it was illegal for them to be married in several states in this country. So if we start making it okay that certain people can marry and other people can’t, it’s a slippery slope of civil rights. Who knows who is going to be allowed to marry or not marry next.
