Kerry Washington

 

Get ready, Gladiators! Scandal is back tonight after a long, long winter hiatus and we couldn't be more hyped. Before we step back into the Oval with Mellie, Olivia and the rest, 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, a two-time Emmy nominee for Scandal, was already a rising movie star before she took on the challenge of becoming Olivia Pope. 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
