Lupita Pays a Heartfelt Tribute to Black Panther Co-Star Chadwick

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o, who played opposite Chadwick Boseman as his love interest in the 2018 blockbuster Black Panther, has paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman following his death at age 43 after a battle with colon cancer. She 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, in the past tense. It doesn't make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning."

Lupita Nyong'o feels ''hopeless'' following the death of Chadwick Boseman.
