Make This Happen: Viola Davis Wants To Be On “Game Of Thrones”
In a video interview for her cover shoot with TV Guide, “How To Get Away With Murder” star Viola Davis revealed the television show she would most like to be cast on. That show? “Game of Thrones.”
“I would love to be on ‘Game of Thrones.’ I love that show,” Davis said. “I would want to play a character like Diana Rigg, like a really great, no-nonsense, formidable queen. But I’d want to kill somebody. With a spear.”
Good lord I love her.
This is obviously the best idea in the history of ever. I desperately want to watch Viola Davis, as a bad ass queen, killing someone with a spear. That would make for excellent television.
As a result of having watched “How To Get Away With Murder” this fall, I actually decided that Viola Davis would almost definitely be the greatest Lady Macbeth of all time. I have given considerable thought to this! However, it seems way more likely that “Game of Thrones” will do more casting than anyone will make another Macbeth anytime soon, so I figure that this is the next best thing. [Daily Dot]
