Letitia Wright is still mourning the loss of her Black Panther costar Chadwick Boseman, and she is finding it difficult to contemplate filming a sequel without him.
In an interview with Porter Magazine, the British actress explored her feelings around the prospect of shooting a follow-up to the movie blockbuster.
“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about,” she told the out. “The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment, so it’s trying to find the light in the midst of it.”
Following Boseman’s death, Wright took to social media to share a spoken word piece in tribute to the actor who succumbed to a four year battle with cancer.
“It is written, there is nothing new under the sun. But the sun stood still that morning, refusing to shine,” she says in the video. “Dark clouds surrounding, confusion setting in. Tears flowing, rivers so deep. I didn’t know this is what I was waking up to — my brother, an angel on earth, departed.”
“A soul so beautiful, when you walked into a room, there was calm,” she continued. “You always moved with grace and ease. Every time I saw you, the world would be a better place. Words can’t describe how I feel — how we all feel — that losing you was forced upon us, to accept this as a new reality. I wish I got to say goodbye.”
