Viola Davis
FEE RANGE: $185,000–$250,000 [FEE NOTE]
TRAVELS FROM: California
Classically trained, award-winning actor, Viola Davis has conquered every medium from stage to television to film. From her Tony Award winning performances in King Hedley II and Fences to her Academy Award nominated performances in “The Help” and “Doubt”, Viola has burst through every barrier to become one of the most accomplished and celebrated actors today. She most recently became the first African American woman to win the Emmy for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as ‘Annalise DeWitt’ in Shonda Rhimes’s ABC drama “How to Get Away with Murder”. Her role earned her a Screen Actors Guild Award, an NAACP Image Award and a Golden Globe nomination. Rising out of “the absolute epitome of poverty,” Viola fell in love with theater early in high school as a form of escape. From the lectern, Viola discusses her career and how overcoming adversities and preconceived restrictions have all contributed to reinforcing her abilities as an artist and becoming a stronger woman.
