Scandal 3x09: YOLO
How could you!?
Hypable speaks with Scandal star Jeff Perry about his role as Cyrus on the hit show! See what he had to say about what’s in store and working with Shonda Rhimes!
There is a reason at the close of every Shonda Rhimes production her trademark stamp is a rollercoaster with the production name, “Shondaland.” For actors and audiences alike, you never know which way the car is going to take you in a single episode. Hypable got the chance to chat with one of Scandal‘s key players, Jeff Perry. Each week, Perry brings White House Chief of Staff, Cyrus Beene, to life ensuring the Fitz administration and the first family remains in office.
Perry has a fair share of Shonda experience, previously appearing in her other smash drama Grey’s Anatomy as Meredith Grey’s father. Check out what Perry has to say about Cyrus, riding the Shonda roller coaster, and the public’s response to the show!
What is the experience like when you read each new script on your end?
It’s a blast. It is the most fun. It is kind of like going for an advance degree for actors. It begins with Tony [Goldwyn] and I, Kerry [Washington] and I, alone and together parsing through it. Where have we been? And who knows what? We get our individual realities together because, of course, the audience knows some things, but individual characters don’t.
Sometimes Fitz will know some stuff I don’t know. Once in a while I will know things that the audience does not quite yet know. First there is a level of orienting and organizing. Where I am, what do I know? What’s my next move on the chessboard? It’s a blast; it’s fun and very challenging.
