Viola Davis grew up a long way from Hollywood, in Central Falls, Rhode Island, and she was born even further away from the world of showbiz – on a former plantation in South Carolina.
In a sit-down with Jess Cagle, editorial director of PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly, Davis recounted her short time living on her grandmother’s farm, which was on Singleton Plantation in St. Matthews, South Carolina.
“I wasn’t on it long, because I was the fifth child, and so we moved soon after I was born,” she said during the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. “I mean, I went back to visit briefly but still not aware of the history. I think I read one slave narrative of someone who was on that plantation which was horrific. 160 acres of land, and my grandfather was a sharecropper. Most of my uncles and cousins, they’re farmers. That’s the choice that they had. My grandmother’s house was a one room shack. I have a picture of it on my phone because I think it’s a beautiful picture.”
born on August 11, 1965
in Saint Matthews, South Carolina, USA.
