Hollywood star, Chadwick Boseman, best known for his star role in the movie, ‘Black Panther’, has died at 43 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
Boseman passed away on Friday at his Los Angeles home with his wife, Taylor Simone and his family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.
A statement from his family which was posted on Twitter reads;
Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer four years ago, his family said in a statement. 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 honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.

Born in South Carolina, Boseman graduated from Howard University and had small roles in television before his first star turn in 2013.
His striking portrayal of the stoic baseball star Robinson opposite Harrison Ford in 2013′s “42” drew attention in Hollywood and made him a star.
A year later, he wowed audiences as Brown in the biopic Get On Up.
His T’Challa character in Black Panther was first introduced to the blockbuster Marvel movies in 2016′s Captain America: Civil War, and his Wakanda Forever salute reverberated around the world after the release of Black Panther two years ago.
Black Panther, the first major studio superhero movie featuring a predominantly African American cast, went on to become one of the highest-grossing films of the year and was nominated for six Oscars, including best picture.
It won three Academy Awards – in the best original score, best costume design and best production design categories.
Before his passing, Boseman had not spoken publicly about his diagnosis. He is survived by his wife and a parent and had no children.
May his soul Rest In Peace.
