Dunham: Kerry Washington is my love

Lena Dunham achieved a lifelong dream by starring alongside Kerry Washington in Scandal.

The Girls actress recently shot a cameo appearance in Kerry’s hit show Scandal. And on Instagram Thursday, Lena treated fans to a picture of her posing with Olivia Pope herself.

“Finally at liberty to reveal this pic of me on the #scandal set as "Kinky Sue" with my true ❤️ @kerrywashington (sic),” Lena wrote, alongside the snap which showed her kissing Kerry on the cheek.

Lena also unveiled a dramatic makeover in the picture, courtesy of a long brunette wig.

The 28-year-old actress will appear in the March 19 episode of the ABC drama. While little has been confirmed about Lena’s role on the show, it is understood she will play a woman who is planning to reveal the sex secrets of Washington’s most notable politicians.

Lena has long been a fan of Scandal, which tells the story of Kerry’s character Olivia Pope’s law firm and complicated romantic relationship with the married President of the United States.

The HBO star previously revealed she would love nothing more than appearing on the drama series.

"Basically, my life's great passion is the idea of being a guest-star on Scandal," Lena said during an interview with Grantland's B.S.Report. "I want to be like, a senator who did something wrong."

Back in March 2014, Lena appeared in a Scandal skit during her appearance on sketch show Saturday Night Live.

And she has taken her love of the show even further by hiring the real life inspiration for the character of Olivia Pope as her new PR expert.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in January that Lena had employed Judy Smith along with Cindi Berger to manage her press.
