Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther co-star shared a touching tribute to him, expressing just how much he wishes they ‘had more time’ together. Michael B. Jordan honored his late friend just like many others, fans and celebrities alike, who were shocked and saddened by the sudden death of the actor.
In reality, Chadwick Boseman had been battling colon cancer for the past 4 years but he never opened up about it publicly so the news about his death was even more shocking.
Michael B. Jordan waited a few days before finally addressing the death of his friend, precisely because he needed more time to think of the words that can express how he feels.
Michael and Chadwick had known each other since they were both in their teens and grew closer while shooting Black Panther together.
Apparently, Michael B. Jordan would call Chadwick Boseman his ‘big brother’ so there is no surprise that the news of his death is very painful.
Alongside several pics of the two and one portrait of Chadwick posted on his Instagram account, Michael wrote: ‘I’ve been trying to find the right words, but nothing comes even close to how I feel. I have been reflecting on every moment, conversation, laugh, every disagreement, hug…everything. I wish we had more time.’
He went on to say that ‘One of the last times that we spoke, you said we were linked forever, and now that truth means more to me than ever before. Since almost the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was only 16 years old you paved the way for me. Showed me how to be better, to honor purpose, and to create legacy. And whether you have known it or not…I have been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time.’
