About Angela Bassett

Look up "icon" in the dictionary and there’s bound to be a picture of Angela Bassett waiting there for you in all her glory. She can now add the 2010s to another decade she’s dominated, as she continues to portray smart, strong African-american women on the big screen and our TVs. One of the best new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Angela brought her timeless talents to the biggest movie of 2019, Avengers Endgame and propelled her hit show, 9-1-1, to a thrilling third season. But her amazingness continues off-screen and after she has left the set, enjoying more than 500K followers on Twitter and another 2M on Instagram.
