Angela Bassett Describes A Horrifying Moment on the American Horror Story Set!
Rachel Lindsay: Now, in recent years, we’ve seen you on some pretty intense sets, from Black Panther to American Horror Story to now 9-1-1 – has anything ever gone wrong?
Angela Bassett: Gone… a couple things. Well, it didn’t go wrong, thankfully, on American Horror Story. I will never forget it, I had a, had a, you know, I’m a voodoo, voodoo priestess. So there’s one particular scene where I’m working with a boa constrictor. And I didn’t know snakes are loud, they really – that hissing?
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Really?
Angela: In your ear is very loud, so… the boa constrictor wrapped him – you can’t! Ok, we have a wrangler. But you’re telling the snake what to do? You know, “an animal wrangler?” It was wrapping itself around me and I was trying to remain calm, because if I was freaked out, I’d just have to do it again. And again, and again.
Adrienne Houghton: Smart.
Angela: And it wrapped – and they said cut, and I’m trying to like get…out… of… it…
Jeannie Mai: Oh my god.
Tamera: It was that tight?
Angela: It was tight, yes. And the more you moved…
Tamera: The tighter it would get?!
Angela: …the tighter it got, yes!
Rachel: That is so professional of you to stay…
Adrienne: How do you stay calm?!
Angela: I don’t know.
Rachel: This is why she’s Angela Bassett!
