Viola Davis “broke down” listening to over Chadwick Boseman’s dying
Viola Davis thought about her late co-star Chadwick Boseman‘s amazing life after his death at the age of 43 from colon cancer.
Viola, who starred with the Black Panther actor in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, told Yahoo Entertainment that while she was unaware of Chadwick’s personal health struggles, she was always as impressed with the way he lived his life.
“I collapsed when I heard he died. Lord knows we all wanted him to live another 50 years,” she said. “We all want longevity. But I can’t see his life tragically at all. Because I felt like he always lived in the moment, squeezing out every bit of life. What makes me think is, it’s not the amount, it’s the.” Quality.”
The actor, who became an icon when he took on the roles of Prince of Wakanda and superhero T’Challa in Black Panther in 2018, never publicly revealed that he was battling cancer. In addition to his time as a Marvel superhero, which he also starred in the latest Avengers films, he has starred in such films as Da 5 Bloods, 42 and Marshall. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, an adaptation of an August Wilson play, was his last film.
