During their conversation, Sandra revealed why Shonda Rhimes turned her down for the role of Olivia Pope on the hit series, which went to Kerry.

“I’ve got to tell you, I remember exactly where I was when I read that damn pilot,” Sandra revealed.

“Really?” Kerry asked.

“Oh yeah. I was on Grey’s. We were on stage five. Someone snuck it to me, I don’t know who it was, but I got my hands on that pilot and I read it and I was just like, ‘How could I play Olivia Pope?’” Sandra continued.

“Oh, for sure!” Kerry added.

“I remember going to Shonda, and it’s like, ‘How could I do this? What is this script? Could I do this too?’ She goes, ‘No, you’ve got to play Cristina Yang!’” Sandra explained.

Sandra also revealed her own theory about this Killing Eve finale…
