'Scandal': Join a live chat with Kerry Washington on Wednesday

Get the popcorn and wine ready. You’ll need it.

Join us Wednesday at 5 p.m. PDT as “Scandal” star Kerry Washington talks about her role as crisis fixer Olivia Pope on ABC’s social media darling-of-a-drama with Times staff writer Yvonne Villarreal. We’ll discuss how the show has folks giddy about watching TV in real time, her tips on how fans should cope with the show’s summer hiatus, and naturally, we’ll try to get to the bottom of how one goes about looking chic wearing white gloves.

But it won’t stop there. Just as Pope’s posse of Gladiators goes crazy with their research — taping stuff to walls and such—we expect the same of you. Here's your time to probe. If you have a question you’d like to pose to Washington about her work on the show, feel free to share it and we’ll do our best to get to it.
