Famke Janssen will return in one of the last two episodes of How to Get Away With Murder season 6.
Famke Janssen could be making one last appearance on How to Get Away with Murder season 6. Her character will reportedly help Annalise Keating (played by Viola Davis) in her legal challenges.
Janssen plays Eve Rothlow on the popular ABC legal drama. The character first appeared in the second season, where she was revealed to be a former lover of Annalise. The former X-Men star became a fan favorite on the series because of her chemistry with Viola Davis.
Aside from her recurring work on the TV series, Janssen is also busy with film. She will star opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan on the crime drama The Postcard Killings. She will also be part of the cast of young adult movie Endless.

Recapping How to Get Away With Murder season 6
How to Get Away with Murder season 6 reignited interest in the ABC drama. The season premiere memorably revealed a bombshell look at Annalise’s funeral. As the season progressed, viewers started questioning if the defense attorney really is dead on the show.
Based on a recap, the series exposed that the FBI is still chasing after Annalise and the Keating Five. Michaela (Aja Naomi King) also figured out that Asher (Matt McGorry) is an FBI informant. Wes (Alfred Enoch) also turned up alive despite presumably dying in the third season.
The current season will serve as the last for Viola Davis and the rest of the cast. Last July, ABC confirmed that the series will indeed be ending this year.
Famke Janssen on sexism in Hollywood
Famke Janssen used the platform the ABC legal drama gave her to be an outspoken voice against sexism in Hollywood. In an interview, she pondered on the X-Men producers’ hesitation to bring her back on the franchise.
According to her, she attempted to engage producers on her possible return. However, she said that she has “not heard any feedback” on the matter. She compared her situation to the actors who played the older versions of Magneto and Mr. X. Both Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart still appear on the franchise.
When Janssen first became part of the TV series, creator Pete Nowalk praised the energy she provided to her character. He said that the Dutch actress made the series “lighter and less heavy.”
How to Get Away with Murder season 6 will air its next episode on Thursday, April 30. The series finale will follow two weeks later on May 14.
