The Scandal actress who served who served as a surrogate (a campaigner who speaks on behalf of the candidate) for Obama in 2008 and 2012 and is now doing the same for Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Kerry, 39, spoke ahead of the White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD) or "Nerd Prom" as it's affectionately called, at a panel discussion hosted by the Smithsonian Associates. And the mother-of-one shared how much she enjoys seeing the outgoing president let his hair down.

"I really cherish my years on the campaign and working for the president. That's what I'll always remember. But I am so excited about Saturday, I mean it will be bittersweet, but we are all so excited to see what he says," she smiled.

"He is a brilliant and hilarious man and we always get to see him be brilliant but we don't always get to see him be so funny."

Obama memorably roasted Presidential candidate Donald Trump at the WHCD in 2011.

Kerry's Scandal co-star Katie Lowes is also looking forward to seeing Obama going for it as she gears up for her second WHCD.

"I just want to see him let it all hang out," she laughed. "It's his last term, he can really go to town and say things that he never could before. And he’s so funny anyway. I can’t wait for the to hear him at the dinner."

Recalling her first WHCD, she remembers, "The first one was incredible. The president was hilarious and then the Vanity Fair party at the Italian Ambassador's house was amazing.

"I remember hanging out with Jake Tapper at 3 a.m. and scarfing down lobster rolls. I love Washington DC and honestly if I weren't in Los Angeles I would live here. It's a fascinating town."
