Several of Chadwick Boseman‘s friends and colleagues paid tributes to the ‘Black Panther’ actor on his first death anniversary. The actor died on August 28, 2020, after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He was 43 at the time of his death.
Boseman‘s ‘Black Panther’ co-star Lupita Nyong’o shared a picture of the two on Instagram, along with the caption: “I did not know that I could miss both his laughter and his silence in equal measure. I do. I do…”
“One year after his passing, the memory of @chadwickboseman remains this alive in me,” she wrote.
Several of the ’12 Years a Slave’ friends chimed in with their support.
“Holding space for your heart today,” Elaine Welteroth wrote.
Oscar winner Viola Davis, who worked with Boseman in Netflix drama Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, commented “My heart”, followed by two broken heart emojis.
Meanwhile, actor Josh Gad, who starred alongside Boseman in 2017 film ‘Marshall,’ took to Twitter to pay his heartfelt tribute.
“Not a day goes by one year later, where it doesn’t still hurt. But in the darkness, he always reminds us of the light. He was an angel on this planet and is now a Saint on high. Love you and miss you more than ever… forever,” he wrote.
Actor Shahadi Wright Joseph replied to Nyong’o’s Instagram memory with a “?.”
Director Quentin James shared a photo with the late Marvel star on his Instagram.
“Rest well King Chadwick Boseman. One of South Carolina’s greatest. One of the greatest to ever grace the Mecca. Grateful Stef and I had a chance to meet you, to thank you and to connect. We won’t forget you brother,” he wrote.
