lisa kudrow darby stanchfield scandal season 3 gi Scandal' scoop: Lisa Kudrow to play 'mentor' to Darby Stanchfield's AbbyWhen it was revealed that Lisa Kudrow was making her way to Season 3 of “Scandal,” little was known about her recurring role beyond the fact that she’ll be a politician. But since then, a few more details have come to light.

TVLine caught up with Darby Stanchfield (Abby), who revealed that she’s among the actors who are getting the opportunity to work with the former “Friends” star, saying, “Lisa has a really nice role.”

“Our characters get along,” she reveals, adding, “She’s almost like a mentor. Not quite like Olivia, but Abby admires the heck out of her, so it was fun to play.”

Though Kudrow is known best for her wacky characters in “Friends” and Showtime’s “Web Therapy,” Stanchfield insists that viewers will see a different side of Kudrow. “You’re not getting Phoebe. It’s kind of amazing what you are going to get. You’re getting the spicy version in that variety pack.” We can hardly wait.

Are you looking forward to Kudrow playing mentor to Abby during her run on “Scandal”?

“Scandal” airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
