Viola Davis: ‘I blew my back out’ during sex scene on HTGAWM
How to Get Away with Murder star Viola Davis let SiriusXM Sway Calloway in on a little secret:
Her show’s sex scenes are brutal.
Davis told the host she injured herself during a sex scene with costar Billy Brown.
“I blew my back out,” Davis described with a hint of laughter on Sway’s “Sway in the Morning” show this week. “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.”
She said the injury meant she had to take a break from sex scenes but promised more from her character’s steamy love life in the future.
“I just told them to slow it down for a minute,” she 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.”
