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!
“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…
