Step aside, gentlemen – there’s a woman in charge now.
Sela Ward portrays the Commander-in-Chief in Independence Day: Resurgence, and the 59-year-old actress tells PEOPLE she gives her gig as President Lanford two thumbs-up.
“It was awesome getting to play the first female President of the United States,” Ward tells PEOPLE. “She’s strong, decisive and not afraid to kick ass!”

There’s a New President
Fox’s character isn’t the only strong female. Sela Ward plays President Lanford, replacing Bill Pullman’s President Whitmore, and she couldn’t be more different.
“Thanks to forward-thinking, non-sexist, socially responsible Roland Emmerich!” Ward shouted to cheers from the crowd. “She’s tougher, more decisive. Not afraid to use force. Sorry, Bill. It’s a very different time.”
Heartwarming, groundbreaking television. Sometimes controversial, sometimes whimsical, always compelling, Sisters follows the trials and triumphs of the four Reed sisters – Teddy (Sela Ward), Alex (Swoozie Kurtz), Georgie (Patricia Kalember) and Frankie (Julianne Phillips) – as they contend with the challenges within their very different lives.
Praised for its frank discussion of many highly charged issues that continue to resonate even today, Sisters was considered by many to be a game changer in how television explored the lives of women and family.
With all twenty-nine episodes from the critically acclaimed first and second seasons, Sisters: Seasons One and Two represents some of the best and most influential television drama of its time. Created by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, the developers of Queer As Folk.
Shout! Factory has a knack for getting the public what they want! The studio has picked up the DVD rights to another badly-wanted TV show, this time taking us back to 1991 with their September 15th release of Sisters – Seasons 1 and 2.
Why both seasons in one 7-disc set? Because the show ran for 6 seasons in all, but the first season was only 7 episodes long, while the second season clocked in at 22 episodes (the remaining seasons each had the same count or higher). So it makes sense to bundle these together.
Co-stars in these seasons included Heather McAdam, Garrett M. Brown, Elizabeth Hoffman, David Dukes, and Ashley Judd (who joined in the second season). Guest cast included Peggy Pope, Joyce Van Patten, Jonathan Del Arco, Dennis Boutsikaris, and more!
