Actress Angela Bassett has nabbed herself a new role as Dr Catherine Banfield in the new season of ER, which premieres in the US on September 25. The working mom says that she is able to juggle her twelve hour days with her family life because she works only 15 minutes away from home. This means that Angela’s twin toddlers Bronwyn and Slater can stop by during the days with their dad Courtney Vance:”Sometimes when I get home they’re asleep already, so I bring them to work or they come at lunch time to visit,” Bassett says. “My daughter loves to put on the stethoscope. To see her eyes the first time she heard a real stethoscope was amazing.”
Angela’s husband,actor Courtney B. Vance,however,stops in more than usual as he also plays a recurring role on ER. He plays Angela’s onscreen husband,of course!
