Angela Evelyn Bassett was born on August 16, 1958 in New York City, and grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida. Pushed by a high school teacher, she applied for Yale University and got a scholarship, ultimately spending seven years there including three post-graduate years studying drama. She first appeared in small roles on "The Cosby Show" (1984) and "Spenser: For Hire" (1985), but it was not until 1990 that a spate of television roles brought her notice. Her breakthrough role, though, was playing Tina Turner, whom she had never seen perform before taking the role, in What's Love Got to Do with It (1993). Bassett's performance earned her an Academy Award nomination and a Golded Globe Award for Best Actress.

Captivating, gifted, and sensational, Angela Bassett's presence has been felt in theaters, stages, and television screens throughout the world. A native of New York City, Bassett and her sister D'nette grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida with their mother Betty. As a single mother and social worker, Betty stressed the importance of education for her children. With the assistance of an academic scholarship, Bassett matriculated into Yale University. In 1980, she received her B.A. in African-American studies from Yale University. In 1983, she earned a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the Yale School of Drama. It was at Yale that Bassett met her husband, Courtney B. Vance, a 1986 graduate of the Drama School.

Soon after graduating from Yale, Bassett appeared in her first film Doubletake (1988) (TV). However, she is more recognized for her role in the F/X (1986) series. It was not until 1993 that she earned widespread recognition for her portrayal of Tina Turner in What's Love Got to Do with It (1993). Bassett's performance garnered a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress as well as an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Bassett currently resides with her husband & 2 children in California.
