Viola Davis on the time she kissed a casting director

Posted on

We know Viola Davis is willing to do whatever it takes for her art: Back in February, she told EW why she decided Annalise Keating, her character on How to Get Away With Murder, should wear sleeveless tops to court.

But we didn’t know quite how far this risk-taking had gone until she told us about the time she kissed a casting director (while in character, of course!) and lingered a bit too long. Oh, also — she had snot running down her face. Watch Davis tell her embarassingly hilarious story in the video above.
