'There is light in the darkness': Black Panther actress Letitia Wright posts faith-filled eulogy to Chadwick Boseman

by Premier Journalist

Black Panther actress Letitia Wright has released a powerful video on Instagram, paying tribute to her friend, colleague and co-star, Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer last week aged 43.

"My angel on earth departed. A soul so beautiful," Wright narrated in the video. "When you walked into a room there was calm. You always moved with grace and ease. Every time I saw you the world would be a better place."

Letitia, a committed Christian, continued: "Words can't describe how I feel, how we all feel... that losing you has forced upon accept this as a new reality. I wish I got to say goodbye.

"Against all the odds, you remained focused on fulfilling your purpose with the time handed to you."

Wright, who played Shuri - the little sister of Boseman's character T'Challa - recalled God speaking to her about Boseman ahead of her first meeting with him. 

"I'll never forget the day I met you. Before I got on the plane to LA for my first meeting with you, God told me that you were my brother, and that I am to love you as such," she said. "And I always did, and I always will. But now my heart is broken." 

"This hurts," Wright added, "but it is also written that all things are made new...there is light in the darkness. Streams of living water flow, giving new life. And all that's left now is for us to let all the seeds that you've planted on the earth to grow, to blossom, to become even more beautiful."

"You're forever in my heart."
