Young actors in awe of working with Viola Davis on 'How to Get Away with Murder'

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The young actors on ABC's new hit drama "How to Get Away with Murder" are thrilled to be working with, and learning from, the best. Viola Davis inspires and excites them every day.

"Watching Viola on set the way she works through a scene is a master class in and of itself," said Aja Naomi King.

Davis' on-screen alter ego, Annalise Keating, intimidates her young law students. The actors playing those roles say the Oscar nominee is anything but scary.

"Viola is very different from Annalise," said Jack Falahee. "She's full of love, and warm. And every day on set, it's just such a pleasure and so fun."

The newcomers to the #TGIT "Shondaland" family have quickly learned how to keep the plot points for the series hidden under a veil of secrecy, and to only reveal the tiniest hint of what's to come.

"Lots of people kiss," Katie Findlay said. "It is scandalous and shocking."

"Harry Potter" alum Alfred Enoch added, "It is scandalous and shocking, and we can't tell you who!"

"How to Get Away with Murder" airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m., following "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal," on ABC7.
