Kerry Washington: Pregnancy Made Me a Better Actress (VIDEO)

As most Scandal fans know, star Kerry Washington has a baby on the way. While the show has had to resort to some odd camera angles and creative blocking to keep Kerry's baby bump off the small screen, Kerry , who's a first time mom, says that she actually learned a lot from her pregnancy experience.

As we learn in the video above, Kerry found learning to play Olivia while being more constrained in her physical movements an "awesome challenge." It wasn't easy for Kerry, who normally uses her physicality a lot when acting.

Digging into Olivia's darker, more vulnerable moments while being in such a happy place in real life was also tough according to Kerry. She found getting to that had space both hard and fun, and it taught her new skills as an actress.

"I've learned a lot about other ways to access Olivia and be her," she explained. Hey, that can only make her a better actress in the long run, right?

As anyone who watched the third season can attest, the result of all this hard work was one of Kerry's strongest performances yet. We can't wait to see what she brings to the table in Season 4!

What did you think of Kerry's acting this season? Let us know in the comments below.
