Bassett portrayed the unforgettable Bernadine Harris in Waiting to expire, which debuted in 1995. Over 35 years later, fans are learning even more about the cult classic. Bassett wasn’t originally supposed to play the part of Bernadine, but in Angela Bassett’s fashion, she brought him out of the park. So much so that she completely improvised the memorable scene where she burns all of her ex-husband’s affairs.

Even though people have never seen the movie before, they recognize the character of Bassett walking away from a burning car like a boss. Now fans quickly realize that Bassett has always been as talented as she appears in some of her more recent roles like drama series. 9-1-1, horror series FX american horror story and cinema 2021 Milkshakes with powder.
