Kerry Washington

Scandal is the toast of television these days, and one of the most popular shows on social media. As we gear up for the Season Four premiere this Thursday, we take a look back at where Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn and the rest of the cast were before they joined the hottest series in primetime.

Washington, now a two-time Emmy nominee for Scandal, was already a rising movie star before she took on the challenge of becoming Olivia Pope. But the Bronx native first came to notice as street-smart teen mom Chenille in Save the Last Dance. Her big breakthrough came in the mid-2000s, when she hit a series of home-run performances in Ray, The Last King of Scotland and Mr. & Mrs. Smith
