Will they deal with parenthood? Quinn and Charlie are making ready to welcome a bit of gladiator into the world — and, frankly, that is arduous to think about. George Newbern, who performs the dad-to-be on Scandal, joked in regards to the couple in an unique interview with Us Weekly.
“So far as parenting, I don’t assume he has a clue. I believe his parenting expertise might come from his information of life or no matter he watched on TV [growing up],” Newbern, 52, says. “I believe it’s going to be some form of standard thought. And Quinn — I don’t know what her thought of a mother and father is simply but. It’ll be attention-grabbing. I can see them strapping the child on the child service and scaling buildings.”
“I don’t even know if Charlie is aware of who his mother and father are,” he provides. “My backstory for Charlie was principally that he grew up like a foster child with out something and he doesn’t actually exist on this planet. That is his method of type of recreating a life for himself. I imply that is what I made up [in my mind], after all.”
It was revealed throughout the season 6 finale of the Shonda Rhimes-created political drama that Quinn was pregnant. Newbern says that they have not filmed a marriage but, but it surely looks like they are going to “make every little thing all correct and proper.”

“This was imagined to be a visitor spot and so they stored asking me again for just a few episodes. I used to be type of an all-purpose, pinch-hitter unhealthy man. And it was only a blast as a result of it was one thing I by no means actually obtained to do earlier than. And now that I obtained concerned with Katie’s character I used to be utilizing her initially after which they obtained concerned in a extra romantic method — in a twisted, romantic method,” the Father of the Bride star tells Us. “I nonetheless assume that he is a nasty man. I believe he is nonetheless making an attempt to catch his breath.”
Newbern, who says the present has “been a trip,” hopes that the previous B-613 spy would not change into too reckless although.
“I wish to see him nonetheless alive. I hope he’s nonetheless with Quinn,” he tells Us of the finale. “This can be a bizarre world. They do not do regular issues so something is feasible.”
Learn the remainder of his Q&A under:
US: What’s your favourite Charlie and Quinn scene?
GN: I actually just like the scene the place I’m type of stalking her at a resort and I’m going up and push her up towards a wall and kiss her. I believed that was fairly nutty as a result of I did not anticipate it. I keep in mind within the learn by means of Shonda was watching me whereas I used to be studying it and she or he was like, ‘You haven’t any thought what to anticipate from these desk reads.’
US: Was the solid shocked to study it was the ultimate season?
GN: I used to be not shocked. I believe there was discuss. Often after a present goes on for six seasons it turns into an enormous query of, ‘Hey, is it going to go on longer?’ Once they determined to go to the seventh season I used to be like, ‘Oh, I guess that’s going to be the ultimate season.’ I believe it’s arduous for them to inform all that story and preserve it attention-grabbing as a result of it burns actually scorching. And Shonda mentioned this earlier than — it makes loads of sense — Trump’s presidency actually form of modified the dynamic for the arc on the present. It’s much less stunning. He’s so controversial that what we do on the present isn’t as controversial as a result of it’s taking place in actual life. That truly might have had one thing to do with it.
Gray’s Anatomy can [go on] as a result of it’s a serialized present. It’s a present that has a starting, center and finish in each episode. Scandal is one lengthy burn. I believe it’s arduous to take care of that. I believe they’ve accomplished an amazing job. It’s an unattainable factor to. I want it might go on for one more 5 years, frankly.
US: Has it been emotional on set?
GN: Not each take, however we had dinner with Shonda and all of us talked in regards to the nice experiences and all that. It obtained a bit of teary and emotional. However as soon as once more, on set it simply looks like work once more. We’re having a enjoyable time. It would most likely get a bit of teary on the finish, I’m positive.
US: What memorabilia are you going to take?
GN: I will most likely take my boots. I put on these little boots and I’ll most likely seize a bunch of stationary from the set if I can. Possibly a jacket or two.
Scandal airs Thursdays on ABC at 9 p.m. ET.
