Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Actor, Dies of Cancer at 43

Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side

Actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding superhero status as Black Panther in Marvel’s cinematic universe, died Friday of cancer, his representative said. He was 43.



Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.

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,” his family said in the statement. “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.”
