Though details of her role are being kept under wraps, Dunham is set to appear in one episode in March, and her character may have some involvement with Pope & Associates.
The “Girls” star has been a longtime fan of “Scandal,” and previously said that being a guest star on the show is her “life’s great passion. I want to be, like, a senator who did something wrong,” she said in an interview. Dunham also took part in a “Scandal” parody during a hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live.”
Dunham is actually repped by the real-life Olivia Pope, crisis manager Judy Smith, who is the inspiration behind Kerry Washington’s character on “Scandal.” She hired Smith, along with PMK-BNC chairman and CEO Cindi Berger, earlier this year.
Entertainment Weekly first reported the news of Dunham’s guest gig.
