Viola Davis is now headlining ABC?s ?How to Get Away with Murder?, but there?s another TV show which she dreams of appearing on. In an interview with TV Guide, the two-time Academy Award-nominated actress says she wants to guest star on ?Game of Thrones?.
?I would love to be on ?Game of Thrones?,? Davis says. ?I love that show. I would want to play a character like Diana Rigg [who plays Olenna Tyrell]. Like, a really great, just no-nonsense formidable queen. But I want to kill somebody. With a spear. How?s that??
Davis also reveals that her favorite show is ?Tabatha?s Salon Takeover? and her TV guilty pleasure is ?Snapped? on Oxygen. ?I want people to think I?m a very serious actress who watches very serious things ? but I love Tabatha, because she is hardcore,? she shares.
Davis plays Professor Annalise Keating, a criminal defense lawyer and a criminal law professor at the fictional Middleton University in Philadelphia. She selects a group of her best students from her Criminal Law 101 class to work on a high profile murder case and manipulates them into doing dirty legal legwork like seducing someone to gain insight in the prosecution?s case, or digging up dirt to discredit the star witness.
The role earned her a nomination for Best Actress in Television Series Drama at the recent Golden Globe Awards and a People?s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series.
