Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington started her acting career in the mid 90’s but her big break didn’t come until she played Ray Charles’ wife in the 2004 film “Ray.” Starring in a multitude of films, Washington landed the biggest role of her career as Olivia Pope on “Scandal.” The political thriller has millions of fans glued to their television screens every Thursday night but the show has also made history by becoming the first primetime show to have a Black woman as a lead since Diahann Carroll who starred in the late 60’s sitcom “Julia.”
