Actor Chadwick Boseman, who is renowned for his role as ‘Black Panther’ in marvel series, had died at 43 after battling colon cancer for four years.
Hollywood star Lupita Nyong’o in the loving memory of Chadwick Boseman, shares a heart-wrenching post.
She penned a heartfelt tribute for her dearly departed friend in an Instagram post.
“Chadwick was a man who made the most of his time, and somehow also managed to take his time. You got the sense that he was fully present and also somehow fully aware of things in the distant future,” she wrote.
“As a result, I noticed that Chadwick never seemed rushed! He commanded his time with ease,” Lupita went on to say.
“Chadwick’s hands were strong enough to carry the weight of the film and free enough to clasp mine when I needed it… I think he understood the power of words and chose to manifest power through his word. He used his mouth to build, to edify, never to break,” she added.
Earlier, Former president of the United States, Barak Obama had stepped forward to mourn Boseman’s passing.
Turning to his Twitter, Obama wrote: “Chadwick came to the White House to work with kids when he was playing Jackie Robinson. You could tell right away that he was blessed. To be young, gifted, and Black; to use that power to give them heroes to look up to; and do it all while in pain – what a use of his years.”
The former president had shared a photo of Boseman’s visit to him.
