Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan recently spoke on the passing of his co-star Chadwick Boseman and dished on the entire cast’s close-knit bond. Jordan credited the family element for having him down to channel Erik “Killmonger” Stevens again.

“That’s something that is very, very near and dear to my heart for a lot of obvious reasons,” says Jordan, 33, adding of the death of star Chadwick Boseman, “[I] had a really tough year losing somebody close to me. And what that means for that franchise is it was devastating.” “But being in that world in a character that I loved playing, and working with [writer/director Ryan Coogler] and all that good stuff, it’s family. We created a family over there,” he continues. “So to be able to be in that world again is something that, I think, will always be on the table in some capacity.” (People)

Lupita Nyong’o Remembers Chadwick Boseman

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o recently remembered her late friend and Black Panther co-star. The high-profile Hollywood actress penned deep words about the world losing the immortalized movie icon.

“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. I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seem like they have exited before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be – here! … that seem ageless… Chadwick was one of those people.” -Lupita Nyong’o’s Instagram
