Following the tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther star who died from stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 43, Hollywood has paid a tribute to the legendary actor.
Among grieving hearts is also that of 33-year-old Michael B. Jordan who also starred in Black Panther and saw the actor as his role model.
“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel.
I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug… everything.I wish we had more time,” the young actor wrote in his emotional tribute shared on Instagram.
“One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked, and now the truth of that means more to me than ever.
“Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not… I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time.”
The Creed actor also went on to call Chadwick a “hero” and a “legend” who “never lost sight of what” he loved the most.
“You cared about your family, your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here. I wish we had more time,” Jordan added.
Concluding his tear-jerking tribute to the late actor, the Just Mercy star admitted he was going to miss Chadwick’s honesty, generosity, and his sense of humor.
The actor also vowed to live the rest of his life according to the example set by the late star.
“I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. ‘Is this your king!?’ Yes . he . is! Rest In Power Brother,” Jordan wrote.
