Playing 'Scandal' Star Portia de Rossi Promises 'Exciting' Return

On the hit ABC political drama Scandal, Portia de Rossi plays the duplicitous Elizabeth North, whose conniving schemes are beginning to come undone.

It's the type of role that de Rossi has said she’s wanted since the series first began, so it only makes sense that the actress was rather tight-lipped about revealing spoilers when talking to ET at the 2015 People's Choice Awards.

The 41-year-old actress and her wife, comedian Ellen DeGeneres, walked the red carpet outside the awards show at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, where she did promise that Scandal is going to keep people captivated when it returns Thursday, Jan. 29.

When asked about the multitude of shocking surprises revealed about her character during the mid-season finale, de Rossi promised "there's more to come."

"What I'm reading now, and what we're doing that will air at the end of the month, it's kind of amazing," de Rossi shared. "[It's] very exciting."

So what is it like to DeGeneres to be married to the star of one of her favorite shows? Apparently, it's hard to keep the spoilers at bay.

"She comes home and starts talking about her day, like anybody who wants to share their day… but I don't want to know her day! Because I'm a fan, and I want to see it like everybody else," DeGeneres said. "So I know things that are happening that are cray-cray."

Unfortunately, like de Rossi, DeGeneres also refused to spill the beans.

Check out the video for de Rossi's response to the video DeGeneres posted of her working out to a Jane Fonda exercise DVD.
