Angela Bassett became the highest-paid woman of color on broadcast television when she renegotiated her salary for the hit Fox series, “9-1-1.”

Vanity Fair reported that the veteran actress now receives $450,000 per episode — and this salary encompasses both her acting and her executive producing of both the flagship show and its spin-off, “9-1-1: Lone Star.”

And while, certainly, $450,000 per episode is more than the average working actor is receiving, it’s nowhere near as much as Angela Bassett deserves — given her history, her pedigree, and her talent.

Higher per-episode paydays were received by Sofia Vergara, who earned a reported $500,000 an episode of ‘Modern Family’ by the end of that show’s run, and Kaley Cuoco, who reportedly received $900,000 per episode of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ during her sitcom’s final seasons,” reported the outlet. 

That said, the veteran actress isn’t just a performer and a producer. Rather, she’s also a wife and a mother: married for more than 25 years to fellow veteran actor Courtney B. Vance. What’s more, per Celebrity Net Worth, Angela Bassett has an estimated $25 million net worth to match. And, together, Vance and Bassett share a set of twins

Let’s take a look at how Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance’s children are making their own way in the entertainment industry.

In an interview with People, Angela Bassett explained how she “drilled” musical prowess into her twin children. And she explained that both her daughter and her son enjoy their music lessons.

“They loved it. They both play the piano and rap and play guitar, so they have a little musical interest that I drill into them, that I insist upon!” she said.
