Where was the cast of Scandal before Scandal? Find out now!
1. Kerry Washington (Olivia Pope)
As Olivia Pope she heads her own team of Gladiators but before she donned her white hat on Scandal, you could have actually seen Kerry on the ABC Afterschool Special "Magical Make-Over" and guest appearances on NYPD Blue, Law & Order, Wonderfalls, and Psych and as Chelina Hall on Boston Legal.
2. Columbus Short (Harrison Wright)
Although it sounds like we won't be seeing Harrison again on Scandal, you may have seen Columbus during his guest appearances on ER, Judging Amy, and That's So Raven or as Darius Hawthorne on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
3. Darby Stanchfield (Abby Whelan)
No wonder we love Darby so much. She's been on all of our favorite shows! She was April Green on Jericho, Shannon Gibbs the late wife of Leroy Jethro Gibbs on NCIS, and Meredith, Rick Castle's ex on Castle.
4. Katie Lowes (Quinn Perkins)
Katie's been seen in small roles on soap operas Guiding Light and As the World Turns plus guest spots on everything from The Sopranos and NCIS to Ghost Whisperer and Castle before becoming "Little Huck" on Scandal.
5. Guillermo Diaz (Huck)
You might remember Guillermo going back to the 1990s with guest appearances on ER, Party of Five, The Sopranos, and Law & Order or more recently on No Ordinary Family or as Guillermo on Weeds.
6. Jeff Perry (Cyrus Beene)
Before becoming the wonderfully twisted Cyrus Beene on Scandal, Jeff played Thatcher Grey on Grey's Anatomy, was Terrence Steadman on Prison Break and had guest spots on Fringe, CSI, ER and many more. Back in the 1990s he had recurring roles on My So-Called Life and L.A. Law.
