This one role that we could definitely say made Washington’s career. The show was created by Shonda Rhimes, who is also known for her other hit show Grey’s Anatomy. Washington plays, Olivia Pope, a Washington, D.C.-based crisis manager who runs her own firm, Pope & Associates, that specializes in political situations. Since the show has started the character has become a widely-watched fashion icon and style trendsetter and is a loose depiction of Judy Smith, who served as George H. W. Bush’s Deputy Press Secretary and represented Monica Lewinsky during the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. The show has survived three seasons and fans can’t wait to find out what’s next for Ms. Pope.
