New Essence Features Angela Bassett

The March issue of Essence will feature the magazine’s fourth annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards, and among the honorees is Angela Bassett, who also graces the cover.

Bassett discusses how much passion she has for acting, and how she considers a  character’s strength before deciding to take on the role:

When I look at a role, I will deliberately find the joy, the sensitivity, the strength, the vulnerability, the resilience. Because that’s what I appreciate about women and black women, in particular. That’s what I want to celebrate—our resilience and our strength.

Other actresses being highlighted include Viola Davis, Jennifer Hudson and Loretta Devine. The March issue hits newsstands February 11th.
