Lorcia Cooper-Khumalo never thought she would be back on Scandal! after she left the show a few years ago.
While there she and her then co-star Clint Brink, who played the character of Tino Martins, kept fans of the show glued to their screens because they were #couplegoals. Fast forward and Lorcia’s character is back in town.
“It feels like a complete time walk, I left there and Dintle is now a adult and has kids in the storyline. They were in school when I left. Dintle has a child and Lindiwe is married and I’m like, what this is crazy.”
On whether she had hoped to make a comeback on the show: “When you leave a show you kind of leave. There’s no ‘it is open for you to come back’, When you leave you carry on with life”.
The current Scandal! storyline sees the return of her character Erin after the dramatic resurfacing of Dintle’s child, Mo. Lorcia believed fans are going to love it.
“What will get them hooked is when they find out what happened in Tino and Erin’s lives in the years they’ve been missing. They are going to meet this new teenage daughter, but they are going to meet her in relation to Erin, like what kind of mom Erin is and also the things that unfold between the mom and the challenges of the adopted child are interesting. The dynamic between Dintle and Erin, that’s something.”
