OK, it wasn’t the REAL President, but Tony Goldwyn, who plays U.S. President Fitzgerald Grant on the ABC series Scandal.
He was in the Gorge few months ago to tape part of an episode of TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? series, where celebrities trace their genealogy. Apparently, Goldwyn can trace his ancestry to the Coe family, early settlers in Hood River, back when it was part of Wasco County. (It split off in 1908.) Goldwyn’s visit took him to the Fort Dalles Museum as well as locations in Hood River. The still photos above and below are from a trailer for the series, which begins March 8.
