Actress Lupita Nyong’o has for the first time spoken about the death of her “Black Panther” co-star Chadwick Boseman who succumbed to colon cancer on August 28, 2020.
Nyong’o, 37, shared a picture of her and a cheerful Boseman on Instagram on Tuesday, along with a heartfelt tribute.
“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honour a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning,” she wrote.
“I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seem like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be — here! … that seem ageless … Chadwick was one of those people.”
