Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyong’o has paid tribute to her ‘Black Panther’ co-star Chadwick Boseman following his death at the age of 43.
Lupita took to twitter and penned down a heartfelt message for Chadwick who has died after a battle with colon cancer. The actress finally broke silence on his death.
She said she remembered being struck by his quiet, powerful presence. Lupita said that now it is difficult for her to think about him in the past tense.
Actress wrote: “I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman.”
Lupita said that it is difficult for her to think of him as dead. She said she know everyone is mortal. Actress wrote: “You come across some people in life that possess immortal energy, and sometimes it feels like they existed before. Chadwick was one of those people.”
“Chadwick showed up to every rehearsal and training and shoot day with a game face on. He was absorbent,” she added.
At the end of her message, she said: “It seems that it was the life that gave up on Chadwick long before Chadwick gave up on life.”
