There’s getting into character, and then there’s getting into character…

Sex scenes, they aren’t as fun as they look.

Part of the reason How to Get Away with Murder is so good, (and the reason Viola Davis won an Emmy) is because Davis is really committed to the character of Annalise Keating. So committed, in fact, sometimes it’s down right dangerous.

People reports:

“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.”

Ouch! While the incident might keep the actor out of steamy scenes for a while, she promises to revive them in due time, and even dropped a bit of a bread crumb when she shared that Annalise’s love life will involve more than Nate.
