Angela Bassett has played some of the most memorable characters of most of our lives and with a movie roster like hers, we can’t imagine choosing just one favorite part. Neither can Bassett who we recently chatted with about her newest project, London Has Fallen in which she plays Lynne Jacobs, the Director of the United States Secret Service. When we asked the actress which character she connects with most, three women actually came to mind — Tina Turner, Stella, and Rosa Parks — and for three very different reasons.

Check out what she had to say about playing these iconic roles as well as how What’s Love Got To Do With It got her in the best shape of her life.
