What would TV’s first lady Mellie Grant do if she saw the nation’s most-visited national park falling into disrepair?
She would probably hire the best person and have it handled, said Bellamy Young, the actress better known as America’s first lady on ABC’s “Scandal.”
On Friday, Young wanted to take a closer look at the city that’s her TV home, including some long-neglected sites on the National Mall. The 44-year-old actress visited Washington for the first time since she started playing Grant on the show. She’s attending the White House correspondents’ dinner this weekend.
But first, she joined a tour with the nonprofit Trust for the National Mall, which is working to raise funds to restore the park.
