‘How To Get Away With Murder’ Q&A: Marcia Gay Harden Talks Taking On Annalise!


Marcia Gay Harden has just made it harder for Viola Davis’ Annalise Keating to figure out “How to Get Away with Murder.”

At the end of last week’s mid-season return of the addictive #TGIT ABC drama, Marcia showed up as Sam Keating’s sister, Hannah, a woman who in one brief appearance raised the stakes. She turned up right after Jack Falahee’s Connor was grilled by the cops, and he was there just in time to overhear her insisting to the Philadelphia Police that her brother is no murderer.
