How to Get Away With Murder Sneak Peek: Famke Janssen's Got an (Unwelcome?) Surprise for Annalise

There are plenty of campuses where the “everyone gets a trophy!” philosophy continues to prevail — but How to Get Away With Murder‘s Middleton University isn’t one of ’em.

In the following preview from this Thursday’s premiere (10/9c on ABC), hard-charging law professor Annalise Keating (recent Emmy winner Viola Davis) is doling out a crisp warning slap to her minions — “Do your work or get out of my house!” — when she’s interrupted by a voice (seemingly) from her past.

Yep, it’s Famke Janssen’s mysterious Eve — and from the sounds of it, girlfriend knows that Annalise isn’t the type who appreciates an unannounced visitor.

    Viola is just too powerful. I can totes see why her performance is emmy worthy. She should have gotten an Oscar for her role in the “doubt” opposite Merille Streep , she owned that scene. Famke Janssen is likable and a decent actress but frankly I’d rather she speaks Dutch, it’ll feel more natural.

    • When has she ever spoken Dutch in film/TV? She’s spent her whole career speaking English and it always seems natural. I’m sure she’s used to it.

        She’s done a couple of Dutch movies … but having seen some interviews she’s better in English then Dutch from time to time.
        As far as I know she spends more time in the US then in Holland.
        As a Dutch person I have to say you can hear that English is not her native languages but I personally think she’s very fluent.

      re: “too powerful”

      Yup, as in too powerfully overacting to a degree its hard to stomach. I’m curious to seee Famke Janssen, but I’m not sure I can take more of Davis. I usually tune out the quality of acting in shows, except in rare cases where its noticeably bad or noticeably good. I’m still shocked she was nominated for that role, let alone winning when she was the weakest out of the nominees. She isn’t remotely in the same league as Tatiana Maslany. For those who prefer overacting, I suspect if Maslany were forced to she could overact just as much without breaking a sweat. Overacting and being “dramatic” just doesn’t take as much talent, subtlety and nuance take more skill. Unfortunately the lowest common denominator public I guess needs to be beaten over the head with overacting instead.

    I’m amazed at how many nip/tuckesque stuff pops up in shondaland shows. It’d be just great if Famke’s character was called Eve Moore Lol welcome back Ava! <3
