Kerry Washington Making Documentary About “Jamaican culture”; PM Holness Thrilled – See Photos

It turns out that award-winning actress Kerry Washington visited Jamaica for more than sightseeing and attaining a tropical experience. It has been revealed that the director/producer plans to do a documentary about the “rich and vibrant Jamaican culture” days after she was spotted touring the island and getting acquainted with the culture.

This was confirmed following a meeting Kerry had with Prime Minister Andrew Holness, who took to social media with the news.

Holness shared a series of photos that showed the 46-year-old star smiling next to him, and a second depicted the two beaming with a gift basket as they stood among a group that included Minister of Culture Olivia Grange and Kerry’s mom, Dr Valerie Washington, who was born in Jamaica.

Following another group photo, the subsequent images consisted of Kerry, Holness, and Grange engaged in a conversation, and the final shot was of Holness shaking Valerie’s hand.

Below the image, Holness noted his delight in meeting the actress and added, “We discussed her documentary project, which focuses on our rich and vibrant Jamaican culture. I was deeply moved by her passion for authenticity and her commitment to portraying the essence of Jamaica with genuine reverence. Her dedication to capturing the true spirit of our people and our heritage in this project is admirable, and I have no doubt that her work will bring a renewed sense of pride to every Jamaican.”

Concluding the post, he expressed his happiness, saying, “Her visit reaffirms our country’s position as a global cultural hub, and we are thrilled by her interest in telling our Jamaican story. #Jamaica #Documentary.”

Kerry Washington had a breakthrough in her acting career after starring in ‘Ray’ in 2004, which earned her an “Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture” award at the NAACP Image Awards in 2005. She is best known for her lead role as Olivia Pope in ‘Scandal’ for seven seasons, which earned her two Primetime Emmy nominations, a Golden Globe nomination, a SAG nomination, and two NAACP Image Awards.

She is also a mother of three and the wife of former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha. Kerry recently finished writing her autobiography, “Thicker Than Water,” which will be published on September 26.
