In TV, people have problem with silence: Viola Davis

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Actress Viola Davis, who plays Annalise Keating in "How to Get Away With Murder", feels TV shows dont have the balance of words as people there have a problem with silence.

"I don't think that TV has that balance at least network TV. I think we are fighting a huge beast which is way bigger than narrative and words and being cinematic. You're fighting ratings, you're fighting sensors," Davis told actor Tom Hanks during "Actors on Actors" segment of variety.com.

"I feel in television people have a problem with silence because then you don't feel like the audience is going to get what is going on in the silence.

"They have to know what is going on and also you know I'm one of those actors, if I am in a scene I'm not a woman who is a size two, if I am in a sex scene, I want to play the sex scene. I want to say this is why I am attracted to you, this is why it's gotten to this point," she added.

The third season of "How to Get Away With Murder" is aired on Star World and Star World HD in India.
