Angela Bassett plays the director of the Secret Service in the forthcoming thriller, Olympus Has Fallen. Interestingly enough, there’s never actually been a female director of the Secret Service in United States history. However, director Antoine Fuqua says he chose Bassett for the role because she represented the type of strength and intelligence that he envisioned for the character. Maybe power players in real life will start to take cues from this type of thinking. Watch their interview below. Cheers to #WomensHistoryMonth.
