Chatting With: Kerry Washington

BY//MIKI TURNER

Kerry Washington is no stranger to complex characters, but on ABC’s Scandal, a new show about dirty dealings in Washington, DC, and the woman who covers them up, the actress is both a problem solver and one of the people playing in the mud. Based on the real-life adventures of crisis manager Judy Smith, Scandal (Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET) is the latest effort from Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy. For Washington, who has three more projects lined up, including A Thousand Words (out now), Django Unchained (out December 2012) and We the Peeples (out March 2013), there’s only one way in which her life will imitate art: she’s busy in both. Lucky gal.
