Scandal stars share touching messages as last episode airs

The show has come to an end after seven seasons.

Scandal’s leading lady, Kerry Washington, has paid tribute to her co-stars after the last ever episode of the television show aired in the US.

The 41-year-old, who played tough-talking Olivia Pope in the Shonda Rhimes series for seven years, posted a series of pictures on Instagram to honour her fellow actors.

In a photograph of her alongside other main cast members Darby Stanchfield (Abby Whelan), Katie Lowes (Quinn Perkins) and Bellamy Young (Mellie Grant), she wrote: “I love my #Scandal Sisters. #Scandal family is real. #TheFinalScandal”.

Washington also posted photographs of her and Tony Goldwyn, who played the US President and her on-off romantic lead in the series.
