Viola Davis appeared on Monday’s “Good Morning America” to discuss the return of “How To Get Away With Murder,” her Golden Globe win, and more. Watch the full “GMA” interview below!

The actress spoke to Michael Strahan in a pre-taped segment on the morning show about the highly anticipated return of ABC’s “How To Get Away With Murder.” Following last fall’s explosive events, Davis discussed how her character will move forward in the upcoming series. “I’m waiting for it to get better. I want her to just do better, maybe go to therapy.” But when Strahan asked for any spoilers, Davis said, “Let me tell you something, it’s gonna get a whole lot worse before it gets better.”

Davis went on to discuss how it felt to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “That was pretty spectacular,” she said. “To look at my family in the audience and my friends, and have Meryl Streep introduce me. I just had a moment of seeing that little girl from Central Falls who just wanted to have a meal, who just wanted to have a house, a bed of her own. I thought to myself, God has blessed me.”

Davis also discussed her big Golden Globes win for her role in Fences, and explained why the movie was partly her father’s story, too. “I feel like that’s whats missing in general with films about people of color, is exalting that every day man,” she said. Watch Davis’ full “GMA” interview below, in which she also discussed the upcoming Academy Awards.
