‘President Fitzgerald’ of Scandal TV series in Nairobi for new movie

Former lead actor in the Scandal TV series Tony Goldwyn is in town.

‘President Fitzgerald Grant’ visited the country alongside Hollywood writer Jamal Joseph to deliberate on the production of a Kenyan film.

Goldwyn on Monday held a meeting with the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB) chief executive Ezekiel Mutua where he expressed optimism that the Kenyan movie would be filmed in Nairobi.

The movie is based on the true love story of the founders of the non-governmental organisation Shofco  Kennedy Odede and his wife Jessica Posner that is documented in their book ‘Find Me Unafraid’.


The arrival of Goldwyn who co-stars in Scandal with Olivia Pope, real name Kerry Washington, excited Kenyans online who dubbed it a boost to Kenya’s film industry.

The star was treated to some Kenyan tea for breakfast along with some bananas at the film board’s offices.

@DonnaOwiti wondered; “Haiya President Fitz is around?”

@lunduluvai tweeted; “You know big things are coming when you see Fitzgerald of scandal Tv series in Kenya.”

@kasukubg stated; “Thank you Ex-POTUS @tonygoldwyn for committing to shoot ‘Find Me Unafraid’ by @KennedyOdede and @JessRPosner in Kenya. This is truly our story and should be done in Kenya.”
