Viola Davis admits she learned an important lesson since signing on to play Annalise Keating in How to Get Away with Murder: Don't typecast yourself.
"When I saw myself for the first time in the pilot episode, I was mortified. I saw the fake eyelashes and, 'Are you kidding me? Who is going to believe this?' " she told The Hollywood Reporter during a roundtable with fellow actresses including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Lange, Taraji P. Henson, Lizzy Caplan and Ruth Wilson.
But after giving herself a pep talk, Davis, 49, says she finally came around to viewing the role as legitimately groundbreaking.
"Then I thought, 'Okay, this is your moment to not typecast yourself, to play a woman who is sexualized and do your investigative work to find out who this woman is and put a real woman on TV who's smack-dab in the midst of this pop fiction,' " she said.

Zach "The Director" Braff returns on Friday with his second cinematic effort, Wish I was Here. It's the Kickstarter-funded story of a struggling actor – his last job was a dandruff commercial – caught in the confusion of dealing with grown-up responsibilities, while still wishing to be a kid. Complete with Shins songs, daydreams and waiting rooms, Wish I Was Here is littered with nostalgic nods to Braff's directorial debut: Garden State.
