Viola Davis Honored by Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Viola Davis has every right to be full of glee and glow. The actress and producer has been blazing a successful career trail which led her to becoming one of the stars of our Thursday nights as Annalise Keating on How To Get Away With Murder.
Not only has her dramatic portrayals been praised on the small screen, but when it comes to film, her skills flourish. Come Christmas Day, we’ll see the award-winning actress alongside Denzel Washington as they take August Wilson’s Fences from stage to the screen.
And when it comes to the new year, she’ll have all the reason to dance with joy as Davis will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Ana Martinez, Walk of Fame producer, shared the official announcement on Twitter.
