It seems even Academy Award-nominated actresses have a little Disney princess in them.

Viola Davis will voice a character in two episodes of Disney Junior’s hit Sofia the First, the network announced today. She’ll play Sofia’s Buttercup troop leader Helen Hanshaw in tomorrow’s episode, and will also be seen later this season as mom to Sofia’s friend Ruby. Tomorrow, King Roland insists Baileywick (voiced by Tim Gunn) assist Sofia on her Buttercup troop outing. Sofia puts her Buttercup skills to use to prove that even princesses are capable of doing things for themselves.

Check out an exclusive photo of Davis’ character — alongside Baileywick — below:
