See an ABC mash-up of Olivia and Fitz’s love affair below:

Excerpt from EBONY interview:

“I was a little concerned because [the character has] a scandalous relationship with the [occupant of the] White House,” the actress said. “I thought, ‘If the president on the show is Black, I will not do the show.’ Because to me, it was too important a moment. I didn’t want to do anything that compromised my relationship with the [president] or that made it seem like I had an insider view on the Obama presidency. I thought that would be so disrespectful and so against all the work that I had done.”

Washington has long been a vocal and active supporter of President Obama and gave a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2012.

The ‘Ebony’ Scandal Issue hit newsstands February 5.
