Angela Bassett was nervous working with Morgan Freeman

London: Actress Angela Bassett says she was initially nervous about working with Morgan Freeman in the action movie ‘Olympus Has Fallen’.

Bassett and Freeman worked together for the first time in Antoine Fuqua`s ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ and the actress says working with the 75-year-old star was a treat, reported Contactmusic.

"I was initially nervous but felt comfortable later. He was nothing but professional, kind, warm and fun, and you know, a treat," femalefirst.Co.Uk quoted Bassett as saying.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ is Fuqua`s first project. The movie also marks the return to the big screen for Bassett, who we haven`t seen since ‘This Means War’.

The 54-year-old has also completed ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’ and she is currently filming ‘Black Nativity’ with Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson.

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ is set to release on April 17.
