*On Tuesday, Tamron Hall welcomed Marvel movie hero Chris Evans and Hollywood power couple Samuel L. and LaTanya Richardson Jackson, all of whom opened up about the loss of their mutual close friend and award-winning actor Chadwick Boseman.
Samuel L. Jackson said: “I was trying to remember the last time I had seen Chadwick. It was at the Marvel premiere and we were talking about a new project I wanted to work on together, but he told me he wasn’t going to be there. It’s gut wrenching to lose someone that is so important to the culture. He imprinted and impacted society in such a way, especially the Black community. To lose him I think I would’ve waited to tell my kids until they were older because it’s devastating.”
Evans, who has starred alongside Boseman in the Marvel universe, said of the loss, “It’s been tough for everybody. His cultural impact is immeasurable. It’s heartbreaking and his legacy is incredible.”
