In the past, some fans of celebrities have claimed that Madame Tussauds didn’t get the likeness of their favorites correct (Nicki Minaj and Beyonce). Hopefully, fans of Angela Bassett will be pleased with the actress’s wax figure.

Bassett currently stars on Fox’s 9-1-1. She’s also the show’s executive producer.
