In Hollywood, all roads lead to ShondaLand.

While celebrating after ABC’s Television Critics Association panel in Los Angeles, Scandal star Bellamy Young found herself in a super hot sandwich between How to Get Away with Murder actors Matt McGorry and Jack Falahee.

“*sigh* #RoughLife Stuck between these cuties,” Young, 45, captioned her Instagram of the crossover moment, calling McGorry, 29, and Falahee, 26, “sexy fellas.”

Young plays first lady Mellie Grant on the political drama, but her position within the White House is precarious at best after last season’s Scandal finale, when her husband President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) kicked her to the curb for Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington).

Though she called Fitz’s behavior “monstrous” in a chat with PEOPLE in May, Young admitted the final scene of Liv in his arms was spectacular.

“I have to say, seeing them together in the White House, that was major. That was epic, historic, amazing,” she said. “That balcony is such a beautiful set, it’s just so sexy to begin with, and to see them all sexy, it was just pretty major and pretty satisfying. I don’t know where we go from here, how they are going to manage even waking up tomorrow, get her out of there, what do you tell the Secret Service, what do you tell America, but I don’t have to worry about all that stuff. That’s for Miss Shonda Rhimes and all our beautiful writers, but I kind of loved it.”

Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder return Sept. 24 on ABC.
