Katie Lowes: I Used To Be A Real Gung-Ho Improv Actress

Posted: Updated:

Does anybody really know who Quinn Perkins is?  It doesn't appear that the other characters on "Scandal" do.  So what does Katie Lowes, the actress who plays Quinn, think?

"There is this really dark little section of [Quinn's] heart and her mind that I think because she's had so many horrible things happen to her that when the roles are reversed and she gets to inflict that on someone else," Katie tells TVFanatic.com.

"She's also an overachiever. Like, she loves to be amazing at her job. That's why she became a hacker so quickly and how she got responsibility from Huck so quickly.

"So when Charlie gives her the assignment to inject this dude and put him out, she's like, ‘Yes, someone is giving me a job. Someone's giving me an opportunity to prove myself, and not only do I get to prove myself but I'm going to kick ass at this job and I'm going to do it to the best of my ability.' Which she does and she's psyched about it and then she quickly realizes ‘oh, no!'"

Katie Lowes joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
