Kerry Washington’s year is looking pretty promising. As the star of ABC’s new show “Scandal,” as well as a role in the next Quentin Tarantino film, Details magazine caught up with the actress before she takes off into stardom.

On being recognized by strangers:

“I guess what they’re going to say they recognize me from.” If it’s a teenage guy? “You’re the blind girl from Fantastic Four!” A European? “It’s always The Last King of Scotland.” A lesbian? “She Hate Me!” The one performance that everyone recognizes her for is the long-suffering wife in Ray. “That’s the wild card in Uno.”

On going to college to study theater:

On her new ABC show “Scandal” where she plays a character based on Judy Smith, the real-life PR guru who advised Monica Lewinsky, Michael Vick, and Wesley Snipes:

I’m really fascinated with how people become who they are.
