While millions of fans are obsessed with the world of Olivia Pope on “Scandal,” Kerry Washington says there is another show she and her co-stars can’t get enough of — HBO’s “Game of Thrones”!
“I’m an enormous ‘Game of Thrones’ fan,” Kerry told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman on the red carpet at the 2014 SAG Awards on Saturday. “The whole cast of ‘Scandal,’ we’re all obsessed with ‘Game.’”
Kerry’s obsession with the world of the Seven Kingdoms runs deep – so deep, in fact, that she threw a “GOT”-themed bash for her mom.
“I actually cooked my mother a ‘Game of Thrones’ dinner for Mother’s Day last year,” she said with a laugh. “[We ate] big turkey legs — so fun.”
Beyond talk of the HBO fantasy drama, Kerry – who showed off her baby bump in a Prada crop top and skirt at Saturday’s awards – dished on the highly anticipated impending return of “Scandal” after its midseason finale.
“We’re getting closer and closer. It’ll be worth the wait,” she said, adding that the show will pick up “about a month later” when it returns on February 27.
And the 36-year-old beauty said pregnancy has been a joyous experience so far.
“I’m feeling really great and very grateful,” she said. “This is nothing compared to 16 hour days on ‘Scandal’!”
