When Viola Davis commits to a scene, she commits!

The actress revealed in an interview with ‘Sway in the Morning’ on SiriusXM that she was so committed to a love scene with co-star Billy Brown (Nate) on ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ that she injured her back!

via People:

“I blew my back out,” Davis, 50, said laughing. “That was in the Billy Brown scene. He threw me up against a wall. All I can say is I was totally committed to the scene.”

Ouch! While the incident might keep the actor out of steamy scenes for a while, she promises to revive them in due time, and even dropped a bit of a bread crumb when she shared that Annalise’s love life will involve more than Nate.  

“I just told them to slow it down for a minute,” the Emmy winner said. “I’m going to get back into it. I have to. It’s Shondaland! They’re gonna have me doing all kinds of stuff with all kinds of people.”

Be careful, Viola. That Billy Brown is a LOT of man…
