Now, Lupita Nyong’o shared a personal moving tribute to her friend Chadwick Boseman, who died on Aug. 28 at the age of 43 from colon cancer.
Nyong’o posted a photo of her and Boseman laughing, with the caption “For the beloved Chadwick Boseman. #TakeYourTimeButDontWasteYourTime.”
It’s the first time she’s spoken publicly about Boseman’s unexpected death.
“I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honor a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense. The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning,” she wrote. “I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seem like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be — here! … that seem ageless … Chadwick was one of those people.”
