Bellamy Young is the cover star for the latest issue of Capitol File magazine.
Here’s what the Scandal star had to share with the mag:
On meeting Hillary Clinton: “My whole life I’ve watched her break through glass ceilings and have venom bounce off her in a way that I am just not built for. I am far too thin-skinned. To meet her and to see that she still managed to keep some sort of soft heart and light in her eyes—the fierce wisdom and all the possibility—it was so inspiring. I believe her to be the most capable human we have as an option right now to lead the country forward, I really do.”
On Kerry Washington: “Kerry has this quarterback metaphor. She immediately took us all under her wing, because we were greener than green—the girls in particular. There’s so much to know because you have this whole other parallel life that is publicity. It’s how to not reveal anything but still say something interesting that’s worth listening to. It’s physical presentation. To be a woman and dressing for the press—which none of us knew anything about. She always manages to get through [everything] with the most grace, the most thoughtfulness. She’s always bringing out the best in [others] and being mindful of the larger picture, of why she is where she is, the moment and what the message is. She has been our moral compass, our tireless cheerleader, our dearest friend, and our highest, wisest mentor, and continues to be.”
On her relationship with her Scandal co-stars: “We are like kittens tumbling around each other in a little bag. We just want to be always on each other, and purring, and settling down for a nap. We are shameless in our love for each other.”
