Well I know there has been plenty of names thrown in the air of who can play Olivia’s Dead mother. I am so elated to say that that have chose a actress that will deliver the roll much justice.
Khandi Alexander has been cast on “Scandal” in a key role.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “Treme” star will play Maya Lewis, Olivia Pope’s dead (for now?) mom. Look for Alexander to maker her debut in the Thursday, Nov. 7 episode of the hit ABC series.
+The Hollywood Reporter reports Alexander’s character will appear in flashbacks because SPOILER ALERT, Maya Lewis was killed in a plane crash that President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) may be responsible for. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Jake (Scott Foley) discovered the president’s involvement in the plane crash during the Thursday, Oct. 31 episode of “Scandal.”
Other “Scandal” Season 3 guest stars have included Lisa Kudrow, Cynthia Stevenson and Emmy-winner Dan Bucatinsky.
Alexander will also be seen in the final season of “Treme” beginning on Sunday, Dec. 1. Her other TV credits include “ER,” “NewsRadio” and “CSI: Miami.”
As you can see she has more than enough roles to deliver us with nothing less than a Emmy Nomination for the role.
THE SHADE IS REAL
