Kerry Washington and Joe Morton have a tense father-daughter relationship on the hit drama Scandal but there’s no bad blood between the two talented stars in real life. Over the weekend the pregnant actress stopped by Papa Pope’s new Broadway show and posted a sweet selfie of the two stars.

“Last night I experienced a transformative night of theater. Went to see the extraordinary Joe Morton (AKA my Papa Pope) on stage as Dick Gregory in #TurnMeLoose & I was blown away by his performance and by the crazy resonance and timeliness of the material. Heartbreaking. Inspiring,” she captioned the pair's smiley photo—which would be an unthinkable sight on the Scandal set.

Unfortunately, it’s going to be a little longer than usual until we see these two actors back on the same screen: Washington is expecting her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, and the series won’t return until midseason in 2017.

As for Morton, it’s good to know that this intense actor can crack a smile.
