Kerry Washington

What I really wanted to be when I grew up was the woman in the Shamu show with the killer whale at Sea World,” the Scandal star revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2013. “I studied really hard, I got into marine biology… and then I got to AP bio in high school, and I was like, ‘Forget the whale, I’ll be on stage by myself.’”
