In the show, Mellie’s husband, the President, is in love with another woman – Olivia Pope. How do you personally feel about them as a couple?
Gosh! Well, as an actor, it hurts to be in a scene with them because the love their characters share is so palpable, so star-crossed. Even though Mellie likes to think of Olivia as a short-term problem, it is undeniable that they share something she and Fitz never did. Not that Mellie and Fitz didn’t have great love at one point, but so much of it was built on secrets, there was never that feeling of oneness Olivia and Fitz share.
As a viewer, I think I just hang on every stolen moment they get. I don’t know where it’s going; I don’t know how to hope, but I do know if you find a soul mate like that in this life, for however long, you are very lucky indeed.

She went WAY far with that last sentence, in a MESSY Tony way. SERIOUSLY? Yes, something is up. And I mean kudos to her for having SENSE for once, but this is… well… LOL
