The Carrie Diaries co-star Katie Findlay has been cast in ABC drama pilot How To Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis, written by Pete Nowalk and executive produced by Shonda Rhimes. The sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller centers on ambitious law students and their brilliant and mysterious criminal defense professor (Davis) who become entangled in a murder plot that could rock their entire university and change the course of their lives. Findlay will play Rebecca, the edgy, pierced neighbor to struggling law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch), who become entangled in the murder saga that shakes their university. For Findlay, the casting is formally in second position to Carrie Diaries, which is unlikely to get a third season. She is repped by Russ Mortensen at Pacific Artists Management and Thruline.
