You’d agree with us that Kerry Washington is one of the best African–American actresses of this generation. She’s had several important roles.
However, her first big break didn’t happen up until she was 35 years old when she took the role of ‘Olivia Pope’ in the ABC drama series ‘Scandal’, created by Shonda Rhimes. She gained worldwide recognition after that role.
Washington has appeared in several different roles in favourite movies like “Save the Last Dance’. Time Magazine included Washington in its Time 100 list of 2014. In 2018, Forbes named her the eighth highest-paid television actress.
