It's no secret that Angela Bassett is all things fabulous — from her flawless acting performances to her innate inability to age, the actress is a force to be reckoned with. She continued to prove this even further when she gave an imporptu performance of a Macbeth monologue that left everyone speechless.

During an interview with TheRoot.com, the American Horror Story star was asked to recite a couple lines from a monologue she remembered throughout her career. Remembering wasn't an issue with this consummate professional as she went above and beyond, reciting a famous piece delivered by Lady Macbeth from the Shakespeare tragedy Macbeth

Without missing a beat, Angela delivered the monologue line by line, without a single blunder. When she was done slaying, she leaned back in her chair like the true queen she is and said, "And then on and on and on..."

Goals, personified! Take a look at the clip, below:
