Chadwick Boseman suddenly past away on Friday after suffering from colon cancer over the last four years. The Black Panther star died at his LA home surrounded by his wife and family. His publicist Nicki Fioravante said:
“From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilsons Ma Raineys Black Bottom and several more – all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honour of his career to bring King TChalla to life in Black Panther.”
