Scandal season 4. Kerry Washington playing the role as Olivia Pope in Scandal TV show is a gladiator. In fact, Olivia Pope’s team is formed by gladiators. However, who were gladiators in Ancient Rome? People fighting to the death to survive. Are you a gladiator?
In Ancient Rome, a gladiator was an armed combatant who entertained audiences in violent confrontations with other gladiators, animals or condemned people. Some gladiators were volunteers, and they risked their legal standing and their lives by appearing in the arena. However, most of them were despised as slaves, and segregated even in death.
‘The Hunger Games’, Gladiator movie by Ridley Scott or ‘Braveheart’ are based on this strong idea. Today, read some inspirational quotes about ‘gladiators.’ Because Olivia Pope (actress Kerry Washington) and her team rock in Scandal season 4!
“Anyone can train to be a gladiator. What marks you out is having the mindset of a champion.” Manu Bennett.
“In ‘The Hunger Games,’ in most people’s idea, in terms of rebellion or a civil-war situation, that would meet the criteria for a necessary war. These people are oppressed, their children are being taken off and put in gladiator games. They’re impoverished, they’re starving, they’re brutalized.” Suzanne Collins.
“I grew up watching ‘Braveheart’ and ‘Gladiator.’ Those are my ‘Star Wars.’ They have values and traits about them that I wish I had.” Channing Tatum.
“When I’m on the court, I picture myself as like a gladiator.” Tyson Chandler.
“I refuse to step inside the ring and fight like a gladiator against my own. I’m not playing that game. Any woman who has survived a year or more of making music has my undying respect.” Shirley Manson.
“But Gladiator is one of my favorite adventures because I really loved going into the world. I loved creating the world to the degree where you could almost smell it.” Ridley Scott.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you. Scandal season 4 is superb!
