While Olivia Pope decidedly ducked out of her own wedding in a recent Scandal episode, her sidekick and friend has said "I do" in real life. Darby Stanchfield, who plays Abby Whelan in the hit ABC drama, tied the knot in recent months, according to Us Weekly, but kept her nuptials a secret from the media.
According to the magazine and its anonymous source, the 44-year-old Alaskan native has been married for "quite a while." It's not surprising that the star kept her marriage a secret. She's famously been hush-hush about her personal life over the years, though she did in 2013 gush about her many "blessings" in an interview published in Shape.
"I think for me, at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day, taking a moment to be really grateful for all the good in my life," she was quoted in the magazine. "And it can be really small things, like something growing in my garden or how nice a neighbor was. When I'm grateful for all the blessings, it puts away all the stress about things not in my control."
We're as eager to hear about Stanchfield's nuptials as we are to watch the next Scandal episode. While Stanchfield is perhaps best known for her sassy role on the White House drama, she's also appeared in Jericho, Mad Men, Castle, and NCIS.
