Judy Smith, who inspired Kerry Washington‘s Olivia Pope character on Scandal, is currently working on the Sony hacking scandal!
The Smith & Company president is advising Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal on how to deal with the crisis after the studio’s decision to pull The Interview.
Judy has been very helpful to Sony, due to her deep contacts with the government, according to TMZ.
Judy and her crisis team are spreading the message that the hack is a big concern for the industry, not just Sony. She is also conveying the message that the studio pulled the plug on the film to protect their employees.
