Viola Davis: Motherhood Helped Emotional Fences Scene

CelebNMovies247.com has learned via Viola Davis, who picked up a Golden Globe for her portrayal of the wife of Denzel Washington in Fences.

Viola Davis admits she struggled with one scene while starring in the Broadway play in 2010. But when the play transitioned to the big screen, she revealed that she had become a mother. It was that little life change that made all the difference for Davis to breath life to August Wilson’s story on the big screen. Viola and her husband adopted daughter Genesis in 2011.

Davis told Live with Kelly on Tuesday:

“It was the last scene particularly because my son (in the film) tells me, ‘I’m not going to my father’s funeral. He treated me like crap, and ruined my life. I’m not doing it’. And when I did the play on Broadway I said, ‘OK, I don’t get the scene. I don’t get this.”

The Golden Globe winner added:

“And then I had a daughter and then I had to do that scene for the movie and it completely released from me, because what I had to tell him (film son) was, ‘You need to forgive your father to release your life’. And it’s nothing that can be explained. There’s no manual on that.”

Viola concluded:

“It’s a heart thing that gets injected in you because when you have a kid… there’s a mortality there. I need for her to be OK. I need for her to forgive. I need for her to have some kind of a good life. Even though I know she’s going to have some nicks and scrapes in there. So I got it, and for me that was just a huge moment for me as an actress.”
