- Although life’s journey came with untold struggles for late Hollywood actor Chadwick Boseman, his long-lasting legacy of love, selfeness and devotion told a different story, no doubt inspiring many to come.
As the world mourns the late actor, Nate Moore, an executive producer on hit Marvel Series ‘Black Panther’ has recounted Boseman’s moving last text in an interview with People – the mag had dedicated their last edition to the Boseman who lost his battle with colon cancer at the age of 43 on August 28.
Moore said he and Boseman had been working together to send a young fan gifts through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a nonprofit organisation that supports critically ill children.
“We worked together to get a young boy a voice note from [Boseman’s Black Panther character] T’Challa, as well as a package of toys – no easy feat when we weren’t allowed to leave our homes or go to the office,” Moore told the magazine.
“But Chad figured out how to make it work because he cared so intently, and in hindsight, so personally.”
According to Moore, Boseman’s final text read: “It broke me, man. But we need to do that for them. People deserve abundant life, special moments. They’ve been through hell battling disease.
“They’ve been through hell battling disease,” he wrote to his executive producer, referencing the sick children they were working to get toys for. “If we were able to ease their suffering and bring joy for a moment, and hopefully moments (as) he goes through the bags, then we made a difference in his life.”
The decision to keep the diagnosis quiet was partly inspired by his mother, Carolyn Boseman, “always taught him not to have people fuss over him,” the agent, Michael Greene, said. “He also felt in this business that people trip out about things, and he was a very, very private person.”
“Everyone should take a lesson from him being able to see what he was going through and still have a smile on your face,” Dale said.
