Viola Davis set for double honour

Viola Davis will be honoured in both the US and UK in January.

The award-winning actress will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angelea on January 5.

Among the guest speakers at the event will be Davis’s Doubt co-star Meryl Streep. To get Meryl to speak at this kind of event shows the high level of respect Davis has among her peers.

Then, on January 15, BAFTA will host one of their Life In Pictures events in honour of the How to Get Away With Murder actress.

It will feature Davis discussing her work on screen including roles in The Help, Suicide Squad and the upcoming Fences (for which she’s expected to win her first Oscar).

Ticketa to the BAFTA event go on sale on December 23 through the BAFTA website.
