wakanda forever Chadwick Boseman

Wakanda forever!

The dreadfully sad news that gifted actor Chadwick Boseman has passed away through cancer at the tragically early age of 43. Born in South Carolina in 1976, he wrote plays, acted and directed in theatre and had small roles in television, before landing his breakthrough role as iconic baseball player Jackie Robinson in 2013’s movie 42. His talent was obvious and he was soon dazzling audiences, with highlights including starring as James Brown in Get on Up (2014) and Thurgood Marshall in Marshall (2017).

But it was as T’Challa, the king of the African nation of Wakanda in Black Panther (2018), that he is most associated. It wasn’t just anyone who could have played such an iconic figure, one who represented so much and to so many. Known for his kindness, his sensitivity, his dedication to the craft as well as his natural warmth, grace and presence on camera, Chadwick Boseman was perfect for the role of such a respected leader. The fact Boseman was privately battling cancer for the final four years of his life while working as hard as ever and still continuing to inspire everyone around him, showed what a superhero he really was. Wakanda forever.
