In an interview with TV Guide, the How To Get Away With Murder actress said that Game of Thrones was her ideal choice for a guest-star role.
“I love that show,” she said. “I would want to play a character like Diana Rigg [Olenna Tyrell], like a really great, no-nonsense, formidable queen. But I’d want to kill somebody. With a spear.”
Please, Game of Thrones people, if you’re reading this: Make this happen. Hire Viola Davis to play a queen who kills someone with a spear. It would improve the show immeasurably. Plus, you’d have an excuse to hang out with Viola Davis. There is no downside here.
