You know her as:
Scheming first lady Mellie Grant
Why we like her:
We've known from the start that Mellie would do just about anything to help her husband (Tony Goldwyn) reach and keep the highest office in the land -- but it didn't emerge until recently just how
far she would take things. Young can play the fierce side of Mellie and the wounded side -- the one who knows her husband's heart really belongs to Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) -- equally well. She also takes what could be a typical scorned wife and lets us really see the hurt Fitz has caused her.
Where else you've seen her:
Young has a recurring part on "Criminal Minds" and has also appeared on "Scrubs," "Dirty Sexy Money" and "CSI: Miami."
