Katie Lowes is ready for her close-up

Before Katie Lowes landed her role as Quinn Perkins in the political drama “Scandal,” she played Tina in the film “Super 8.” Who was Tina? “Tina may have been the most fun I ever had on a set,” Lowes recalled. “I played the girl with her hair in curlers who ran through a cave and got eaten by the monster.”
