Angela Bassett is known for an array of projects throughout her career, but Marvel fans know her best as Ramonda from Black panther. Bassett recently reprized his role in an episode of the animated series, What if…?, and we will see her again soon in the next Black Panther following, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. As well as being a fan favorite Marvel star, Bassett was also nominated for an Oscar in 1994 for playing Tina Turner in What does love have to do with it. She also recently lent her voice to Pixar’s Soul, appeared in the new Netflix action film Milkshakes with powder, and was featured in five seasons of american horror Story. In honor of all of his accomplishments, Bassett is the latest star to have a wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood. While some wax figures in the past made the headlines for being ridiculously bad, Bassett’s is freaking out the internet about how good it is.
