Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To His “Big Brother” Chadwick Boseman Through A Heartfelt Message

Michael B. Jordan, portraying ‘Erik Killmonger’ in ‘Black Panther,’ penned a heartfelt tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who passed away from stage IV colon cancer at 43, four years after his first diagnosis in 2016. Jordan posted a series of photos of himself with Boseman and added a lengthy note alongside. He began:

“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.”

Then the actor told of Boseman was the one who paved the way for him in acting. As remember, Boseman and Jordan played the same role in ‘All My Children.’ Boseman had fired from the project, after expressing his concerns regarding that the character portrays a racial stereotype; he was replaced by 16-year-old Jordan.

Jordan stated that the late actor motivated him by his greatness since the ‘All My Children” days:

“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 a legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not… I’ve been watching, learning, and constantly motivated by your greatness.”

The ‘Creed’ actor called Boseman “big brother” and expressed his regret regarding that he did not get the opportunity to say how much he appreciated Boseman.

“Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved 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.”

Jordan reiterated that he wished they had had more time together, and concluded his message with a highly forceful promise:

“I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. 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.”
