‘Black Panther’ actor Chadwick Boseman died at the age of 43 after a 4-year battle with colon cancer.
The actor was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2016, which progressed into stage 4 within four years.
His official Facebook account announced on Saturday morning, August 29, confirming the passing of the actor “with immeasurable grief.”
“As a true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” the post read, citing Marhsall, Da 5 Bloods, and August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.
All of these scenes 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.”
Chadwick passed away in his home, surrounded by his wife and family.
“The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during the difficult time,” read the message posted on Chadwick’s Facebook page.
Our deepest condolences to the family.
