*Shonda Rhimes has officially confirmed that Harrison of “Scandal” (played by the troubled Columbus Short) has been killed off the show!
TV Guide got the scoop from Rhimes and she said, “it’s safe to assume that Harrison has met his end.”
This ends all rumors Short will be replaced by another actor. It’s simply not true!
Many actors have been rumored to be Short’s replacement on the show including Larenz Tate.
A smaller known actor Eric West was also rumored to replace Short. The rumors were endless.
West rumored addition came from an alleged screen capture of an email correspondence between Rhimes and the stars of the show, announcing that West will be Short’s replacement.
Rhimes, of course, denounced these rumors with a furious tweet about the fake story.
She tweeted, “I’ve never heard of Eric West. Harrison is not being recast EVER. How about reporters CHECK THEIR SOURCES before running with a story? “
If she wasn’t clear beforehand, she should be now! Harrison is dead! There’s no replacement for the character or Short’s departure.
