Jump to Comments


Think you’re the ultimate fan of Scandal? Not so fast says Oscar-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o. It turns out the 12 Years a Slave star is a superfan of the adrenaline filled, emotional roller coaster ride that is the ABC series. A quick perusal of Nyong’o’s Instagram account reveals her propensity for taking photos with fellow celebs. Leonardo DiCaprio, Oprah and Lena Dunham have all found themselves saying “cheese” next to Nyong’o, but it’s the bevy of Scandal stars — from Kerry Washington to Bellamy Young — who really take the spotlight. Of course, this can mean only one thing: Lupita Nyong’o, the SAG Award winner for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, is just as big of a fan girl as the rest of us!
