The famous actress is going to be quite busy balancing being a new mom to adorable baby girl, Isabelle, and working on her scandalous ABC series. But Kerry’s recent Emmy nomination for her role as Olivia Pope should be great motivation to get back at it.

Show creator Shonda Rhimes posted a photo of Kerry giving the camera a smirk with the script covering part of her face on her WhoSay account.

Rhimes captioned the pic, “Our own @kerrywashington at the #scandal table read! We are just starting the read!!”

Scandal premieres on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
