Viola Davis - Helping African American actresses into the limelight?
The big box office surprise of the week in Hollywood was the domination not of the latest 3D movie or the much anticipated Planet of the Apes, but a touching film based on Kathryn Stockett`s 2009 novel The Help. The film tells the story of the relationship between white women and their black housekeepers in 1960s Mississippi, and stars Tony Award winning actress Viola Davis. While equality in Hollywood has come a long way over the last few decades, there is still a disproportionately small number of African American actresses in starring roles. So is Viola Davis helping to rectify that imbalance with her critically acclaimed portrayal in The Help, and what can her stars tell us about her?

Davis was born on August 11th 1965, making her a Leo born in the Chinese year of the Snake. Whilst most often considered one of the proudest of the Western star signs, Leos also have a tendency towards stubborn behaviour - a trait that strangely enough has been an advantage in helping Davis to managed to fight her way to the top of a notoriously tough profession. But that Leo personality has also ensured that Davis has the ability to command attention both on and off screen, and her multiple Tony awards and other accolades prove that people are sitting up and taking notice of this talented actress. There is still an imbalance between the number of high profile black actresses in Hollywood, and Davis` talent and determination is making sure that this imbalance is finally being redressed. Her Leo tenacity as well as her undeniable talent has a lot to do with that success.
