Cicley Tyson's GIF game is, as the kids say, on fleek. These examples from The Help, Trip to Bountiful and How to Get Away with Murder all truly speak for themselves.
There's a very good chance Cicley Tyson is going to win her fourth Emmy Award on September 20 for her oh-so-memorable and super-GIF-inspiring guest spot as Viola Davis' mother, Ophelia Harkness, on the hit show How to Get Away With Murder. Then a few short days later, the Tony winner and Oscar nominee comes back to Broadway to co-headline a revival of The Gin Game along with fellow Tony winner James Earl Jones.
Like Calliope, Clio and Thalia before her, Cicely proved quite the muse in this promo video. Just savior these seven moments Ms. Tyson, at 90, indeed proved that a diva is a female version of a hustler.
The Gin Game begins previews September 23 at Broadway's Golden Theatre.
