Q: How do you approach your character in “Scandal”? Do you use a specific method? HolmesPlace

A: “I work very physically. How I approach a character often has a lot to do with the physicality of that character. So the challenge of my physicality changing dramatically two times now in the life of the show and Olivia’s body not changing, I was trying to figure out how to hold onto her posture and her emotion, her physical orientation while mine is different every day has been in a real exercise for me.”
