“I blew my back out!” Davis said. “That was in the Billy Brown scene he threw me up against the wall. All I can say is I was totally committed to the scene!”

Never one to give up on making the magic happen on camera, Davis stayed in character despite the pain.

“I just told him to slow it down for a minute. I’m going to get back into it. I have to it’s Shondaland! They’re gonna have me doing all kinds of stuff with all kinds of people.”

Poor Viola! But we have to ask, is it just us, or does Billy Brown seem even hotter now?
