Angela Bassett, 62, picks up groceries in statement t-shirt and distressed shorts… as she’s set to earn ‘north of ‘$450,000 per episode’ for 9-1-1
She’s just landed a pay raise that will give her ‘north of $450,000 an episode’ for season 5 of Fox’s 9-1-1.
And while that probably makes her the highest paid actress of color ever on a broadcast drama series, Angela Bassett clearly remains very down-to-earth.
The star, 62, was spotted doing her own grocery shopping at an organic supermarket in LA on Tuesday.

In the money: Last week, it was reported Bassett landed a pay raise that will give her ‘north of $450,000 an episode’ for season 5 of Fox’s 9-1-1, making her the highest paid actress of color ever on a broadcast drama series
A week ago, Deadline.com reported that all series regulars on 9-1-1 had secured 25 percent pay increases ahead of the new season.
In addition to being the show’s lead, Bassett also helped showrunner Ryan Murphy develop the series on which she serves as executive producer. She also executive produces the spin-off 9-1-1: Lone Star.
The show about first responders premiered on Fox in 2018 and co-stars Peter Krause, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Aisha Hinds, Rockmond Dunbar, Kenneth Choi, Oliver Stark, and Ryan Guzman.

Meanwhile, the What’s Love Got To Do With It Oscar nominee has been filming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in which she reprises the role of Ramonda.
Production got underway in Atlanta, Georgia, last month with Ryan Coogler returning to direct the sequel to the 2018 superhero smash hit Black Panther.
Back in May, Angela Bassett insisted that the movie will be a fitting tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who succumbed to colon cancer at the age of 43 after a ‘secret’ four-year battle with the disease.
‘It’s going to be phenomenal and it’s going to pay tribute and it’s going to carry on that legacy,’ Bassett, 62, told USWeekly.

Blockbuster: Black Panther debuted in February 2018 and was an immediate box office smash hit. It was the highest-grossing film at the domestic box office in 2018, and second worldwide, just behind Avengers: Infinity War ($2.048 billion)
