10. Sela Ward as President Elizabeth Lanford
In the sequel of Independence Day, Sela Ward had the part of President Elizabeth Lanford. Now, whether or not Independence Day should’ve had a sequel this many years later is debatable—why mess with such a good thing?
However, what’s not debatable is how perfect Sela Ward was as a female president in the film. She was fierce, in charge, and on-point in her executive role. Turns out, she did her research and studied footage of Hillary Clinton to prepare. That explains quite a bit.
