A Day in the Life of Bellamy Young
A Day in Photos with Bellamy Young
As First Lady Mellie Grant on ABC’s Emmy-winning, smash hit Scandal, Bellamy Young is tough as nails, cunning, manipulative, and the girl you totally love to hate. But in real life, she’s the sweetest, sunniest, most genuine southern belle.
Whether her character is inducing labor to prevent Fitz from divorcing her or remaining by his side during his re-election with a rumored new love interest in tow (spoiler alert!), we’ve never been more obsessed with our Thursday nights.
Lucky for us, the amazing actress shared an exclusive peek at a day in her life. Read on to get a glimpse inside the Oval Office, Young's shopping cart, and much more.
Up and at ‘Em
“Poor Bean would rather still be in bed at 6:00 a.m. on a Friday, but here we go! The beginning of the week usually start at 4:30 a.m., so this feels luxurious to me!”
“Gotta face a little Hollywood traffic before I arrive at my cover shoot for Bella magazine!”
"Thank you Hugo's for my yummy oatmeal and soy milk.”
Hair and Makeup
“The magic begins!”
“Dawn gives good brow, wouldn't you agree?”
“Now Helen will transform me from Bellamy to Mellie.”
Not Quite the West Wing
“Here's my home away from home. I duck in here to get into costume...”
“...And on the way to set, I run into this cutie, Ms. Katie Lowes!”
Fitz and Fam
“Today we're taking pictures to establish a history with our kids, the newly hired (and fantastic) Dylan Minnette and Madeline Carroll.” [Tweet this photo!]
What's in the Cart?
“I zip home via the grocery store. Not the healthiest of hauls, but not too shabby.”
“Home in time to do a little yoga as the sun sets (primary series ashtanga is my practice). I find it an endless source of balance, strength, peace, and self-revelation. I am, of course, watched over by Bean at the same time.”
“I finish a long, wonderful day with my neighbors. One of our ranks just released a film, so we've gathered to watch a screener and celebrate her. After, I walk home, thanking my lucky stars to be as blessed as I am these days. I unwind a bit, meditate for a while, and fall happily asleep. Thanks so much for sharing my day with me!”
