Can’t wait to get addicted to this show, How To Get Away With Murder. Read more about how Viola felt about getting this leading role in the NPR article below.
I was moved by what she said, so truthful “There is no way in the history of film or TV that you’ve seen a character like this played by a black woman who looks like me…Not even Kerry Washington or Halle Berry [looks like me]. I’m talking about a black woman who looks like me — a dark-skinned black woman with the nose, the age, in every way like me,” and Shonda Rhimes has brought her front and center. I love it! I can definitely relate to what she is saying, being a dark skin beauty myself and being told at a young age “You’re Beautiful for a Dark Skin Girl.” Ha, even then I knew how to brush statements like that off and walk with my head even higher!
