About Viola Davis

Everything Viola Davis touches turns to gold—including statues like her Academy Award and Emmys. Viola’s breakout film roles in Doubt and The Help brought her to the red carpet, but her role on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder brought her into the homes of millions of Americans. This year, she starred in the comic book cult classic Suicide Squad opposite an all-star cast. With a fanbase that spans all ages, races, and genders, Viola uses her social media presence to share her excitement while she’s getting ready for an award show or to simply hype up the next episode of #HTGAWM.
