Scandal star Katie Lowes used to babysit actress Connie Britton's son before landing her big break on the hit TV series.
Britton reveals the 32 year old, who portrays Quinn Perkins on Kerry Washington's popular political drama, supplemented her income from small acting gigs by taking care of her adopted boy Eyob.
She jokes to America's E! News, "Can you believe that? I was so upset when she got this little pilot. I think it was really pretty selfish on her part, I'll be honest."
Lowes has since found further success by voicing a character in hit Disney animated film Frozen.
