American actress, Viola Davis is set to get her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
For Davis, who will become enshrined with the star during a special ceremony on January 5, 2017, the distinction is a long, long time coming.
The news was broken by the Vice President of media relations for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Ana Martinez, on Twitter.
The 51-year-old Academy-Award nominee has been enticing moviegoers for years, and more recently captivated viewers as the morally watered down Annalise Keating on ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder.
On Christmas day, Davis will shine bright like a diamond once again in Fences, starring opposite Denzel Washington who also acts as the movie’s director. And while Davis has long had the support of the people, she’ll now forever be immortalized on Hollywood Walk of Fame with her own star.
