“Scandal” star Tony Goldwyn, who graduated from Brandeis in 1982, spoke to about 200 alumni and friends at the Ebell of Los Angeles on Sunday. Goldwyn told the group that he had the best acting teacher of his life — Ted Kazanoff — during his time at Brandeis. “I was blessed to study with him. He formed the foundation for what I still think about acting today.” (Kazanoff died in 2012 at the age of 90.) Goldwyn, also known for “Ghost” and “Divergent,” was interviewed onstage by Alice Kelikian, chair of Brandeis’s Film, Television and Interactive Media program.
