2 for 1 offer for Afridiziak readers - Angela Bassett: Queen of the Screen
Bow down to Hollywood royalty this September as BFI Southbank shows the best of Angela Bassett; films from an actor who’s captivated generations of audiences as Tina Turner, Malcolm X’s wife, Whitney Houston’s BFF, a kick-ass sci-fi heroine, and more recently as a Queen of Wakanda.
Bassett is one of the most captivating screen stars of her generation, with an illustrious career spanning over 30 years, traversing every genre from intimate indie drama (Boyz n the Hood) to heart-stopping musical biopic (What’s Love Got to Do with It) to dystopian, action-fuelled thriller (Strange Days). Bassett’s regal presence and undeniable versatility have come to define her signature star power, and she’s firmly established herself as an iconic leading lady. An electrifying character actor, director and producer, she’s also seen as one of the finest and most beloved artists to have emerged from the early 90s wave of new American cinema. Jan Asante
