Tony Goldwyn known as Fitz or President Grant on ‘Scandal’ talks about playing the President.
I transcribed the most interesting part.
What’s a chink in your armour that you haven’t really talked about much?
A chink in my armour? Erm… Well there are things that I feel like I’m beginning to conquer. I mean, I know currently there are things… but what comes to mind are ways that I got so wrapped up in my own issues and what was important to me, in my own sense of drive, that I um, didn’t…wasn’t…I don’t think was empathetic enough to my wife and her issues.
Did that experience inform your character on Scandal?
Oh yeah. I mean, their situation is very extreme but my life of um, relationships has always served, as an actor that’s what you draw on that stuff.
