The only person more excited about her role than us is probably Lena herself!
She went on Late Night with Seth Meyers to talk about her guest role and how she ended up living a dream by landing a spot on the show — which actually almost never happened because she and fellow showrunner Shonda Rhimes (creator of Scandal) are both too polite!
When Lena expressed interest in the show, Shonda said she’d love to have her on, but both women thought the other was just being nice!!
Thank goodness all that sorted out. Now Lena has a guest role and a fancy new wig for it!
Oh and that wig. She talks about the wig too. Who’s idea was the wig??
Check out the video (above) and find out! Also, get pumped cause it’s airing on TV tonight on ABC!!
Then check out the video (below) for an actual SNEAK PEEK preview of a great scene between Lena’s character and Kerry Washington‘s Olivia Pope!
