Actress Bellamy Young is currently playing the role of a grieving mother, a position that no mother EVER wants to be in.
Season 3 of the hit ABC (PLOT SPOILER) left off with the death of President Fitzgerald Grant and the First Lady’s teenage son. Picking up where they left off, Season 4 opened up with Mellie Grant in a compromising position, being in the public eye while in deep anguish and pain.
“Shonda is depicting the kind of grief that doesn’t always get honored, so it’s been incredible to inhabit that kind of grief,” Young told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for the Mercedes-Benz Carousel of Hope Ball. “I think we all try to shove our shame away, but Shonda just goes towards the truth. Different people grieve in different ways and it’s been absolutely transforming for me personally because I judge myself and try to be appropriate a lot.”
She added, “It’s really been transforming for me to just inhabit Mellie in her ‘you know what, this is what is going on right now’ kind of moment.”
Scandal airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. on ABC.
