Ahead of the final episode of the TV series "Scandal", Washington has spoken up about how life-changing her character Olivia Pope has been to her, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: "The thing that's really fun for me about saying goodbye to a character is they kind of live in you. There will be things that Olivia Pope has given me that always stay with me. She's changed me.
"I'm going to have to say bye to the Prada purses but not goodbye to the courage, and the courage is more important."
Washington hopes "Scandal" leaves a mark on the television landscape, after it broke new ground by casting a black female lead.
