Olivia Pope has inspired a future duchess!
Kerry Washington and the cast of Scandal celebrated their beloved show’s series finale, and in turn supported the Actors Fund, while at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday night. Washington, who portrayed leading lady Olivia Pope on the ABC drama, spoke with ET’s Leanne Aguilera about one of her most famous fans, Meghan Markle.
Two years ago, Prince Harry's fiancee told ET that her ultimate celebrity talent crush was the 41-year-old actress, and we had to share the news with Washington.
“That’s amazing!” she said in response before gushing over Markle. “She’s so beautiful and so talented, and I’m so very happy for her. I’m thrilled for the opportunities that lay ahead for her.”
Washington, who’s been married to football player Nnamdi Asomugha since 2013, added, “I’m so happy for her because marriage rocks, so welcome to the club, girl!”
As for whether Washington will be waking up early to watch the May 19 royal wedding, she confessed, "Probably. I remember when my mom woke me up as a bitty girl to watch Princess Diana get married. So, I probably will tune in.”
Washington also opened up about struggling to say goodbye to Olivia Pope and the gladiators on Scandal. “At the table read of the finale script, they actually had tissues all along the table because they knew that everyone would be crying and we were," she recalled. "Those tissues got used!”
