Scandal star Kerry Washington has said she always tries to embody her mother's character traits of "grace, intelligence, refinement and dignity".

The 37-year-old actress told Stylist magazine about her parents' influence on her: "They influenced me immensely. I've learned very different things from each of them."

She continued: "My mother is more of a quiet soul but she walks in the world with a great deal of grace, intelligence, refinement and dignity. I've tried to embody those things in the best way I can.

"My dad is much more gregarious. He is one of the most generous spirits I've ever met and he truly is interested in the people and the world around him."
