Emmy-winner Viola Davis spoke about her sexy love scenes on “How to Get Away with Murder” with ‘Sway in the Morning’ on SiriusXM, and she revealed that her commitment to the act with co-star Billy Brown (Nate Lahey) resulted in a back injury.
“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.”
Billy sat down with HuffPost Live last November to discuss what it’s like to film those steamy sex scenes.
“[Viola] sets a tone as number one on the call sheet,” Brown said. “Not just with us actors, who collectively have less experience than she does, but with the crew as well.”
The actor explained that Davis “shows up ready to go” as successful Philadelphia defense attorney Annalise Keating.
“She shows up and you want to keep up with her,” he explained. “She’s first to admit if things aren’t flowing, so she’s comfortable in that way as well. She’s just easy with herself. You pick that vibe up and you want to show up prepared.”
For her performance as Keating, Davis won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series in 2015. The role also won her two SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.
Created by Peter Nowalk and produced by Shonda Rhimes, HTGAWM was named Television Program of the Year by the American Film Institute and won Outstanding Drama Series at the Image Awards and GLAAD Awards.
Fans of the series know Annalise and Nate simmered on their romance soon after he learned she framed him for the murder of her husband, but Davis promises Keating will continue to explore her adventurous sexual appetite on the series.
“I just told them to slow it down for a minute,” the Emmy winner told Sway. “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.”
