Chadwick Boseman would have turned 44 years old on November 29. To celebrate the late actor’s memory and legacy, Boseman’s fellow performers and former costars, including those from Black Panther, shared loving tributes on his birthday.
Boseman passed away in August after a private four-year battle with colon cancer. At the time, his reps confirmed the news, saying, “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy. It was the honour of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.”
