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 don't know if I would have had kids at this point in my life if she didn't make me feel like anything is possible. I feel like she's given me a lot of So I'll keep that

"I'm going to have to say bye to the Prada purses but not goodbye to the courage, and the courage is more important."
