In honor of her 60th birthday, we pay tribute to Angela Bassett’s bookish roles.
In a career spanning four decades, Ms. Bassett has played a wide range of characters—and quite a few of them are based on books! Here is a complete (we think!) list, in chronological order. For these purposes, we have included plays (even two that I can’t find published versions of) and comics (of course).
Thank you for your stunning work, Ms. Bassett, and Happy Birthday!
