Who is viola davis dating
Born in South Carolina, Viola Davis grew up in Rhode Island, where she began acting—first in high school, and then at Rhode Island College.
She reprised her role playing Rose Maxson in the 2016 film adaptation of Fences, directed and co-starring Denzel Washington, for which she received an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 2017.
She again worked with Wilson on his 2001 drama King Hedley II, for which she won her first Tony Award.
On the small screen, Davis tried her hand at series television with the medical drama City of Angeles, in 2000.
Returning to the stage, Davis gave another show-stopping performance in Fences in 2010.
She co-starred with Denzel Washington in this revival of the August Wilson play, portraying the wife in a long-married couple whose relationship is falling apart.
She, once again, made a tremendous impression with a small supporting role, and showed she could hold her own against some of Hollywood's greatest talents.
