On the How to Get Away with Murder episode ‘It’s About Frank,’ Annalise (Viola Davis) attends an Alcoholic Anonymous meeting. Newcomers are asked to identify themselves. When asked to speak her name, Annalise does, reluctantly. The moment her name is spoken, a woman turns and looks at Annalise. It’s the president of the university, Soraya Hargrove.
Soraya Hargrove is portrayed by Lauren Vélez. She’s known for her roles on South of Hell (Tetra), Dexter (Capt. Maria LaGuerta), Ugly Betty (Elena), Numb3rs (Claudia Gomez), Oz (Dr. Gloria Nathan), and New York Undercover (Detective Nina Moreno), among many others. Fun fact about Velez: Right after high school, she received a scholarship from the Alvin Ailey Dance School. Her first job was performing in the national touring company of Dreamgirls. How to Get Away with Murder airs Thursdays at 10pm on ABC.
