“Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman has passed away after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. He was only 43 years old. His family, whom he was surrounded by at the time of his death, tweeted the devastating news that sent shock waves around the world.

 

Boseman, a native South Carolinian and Howard University graduate, was best known for his historical portrayals such as his breakout role as Jackie Robinson in “42” (2013), James Brown in “Get On Up” (2014) and Thurgood Marshall in “Marshall” (2017). But he would book an influential role of a lifetime as T’Challa in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” which broke a number of records including the top-grossing superhero film of all time in the US.  He most recently appeared in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods,” and will star in George C. Wolfe’s “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” alongside Viola Davis.

Celebrities took to social media to mourn the loss of the fallen actor, including Kerry Washington, Whoopi Goldberg, Jared Leto, Joe Biden, Boseman’s “Black Panther” co-star Angela Bassett, and “Avengers Endgameco-stars, Mark Ruffalo and Chris Evans.

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother…”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
