Veteran award-winning actress/choreographer/dancer Khandi Alexander will play Olivia Pope’s mother, Maya Lewis, on the ABC primetime drama Scandal beginning Thursday. Alexander is known for her long running roles on Treme, CSI: Miami,Newsradio, and ER, as well as for her compelling work on HBO’s The Corner, and in films like CB4, Menace II Society, Poetic Justice, and Sugar Hill.
While she’s not one of the blockbuster names Gladiators expected, like Angela Basset, I’m sure Mrs. Lewis will ace the role. Afterall, creator Shonda Rhimes has never miscast anyone on Scandal.
Scandal is a prime time political thriller starring Kerry Washington that airs on Thursday nights, at 10pm, on ABC. The series is enjoying its best season ever, in terms of ratings.
