这 黑豹: 永远的瓦坎达 演员, 29, 告诉 守护者 in a recent interview that the death of Boseman — who died at the age of 43 在八月 2020 after a private fight with colon cancer — has completely changed the way she interacts with her loved ones.
Wright said she constantly texts her cast members “to tell them I love them” any chance she gets, especially her co-star 呼叫古里拉 和 黑豹 导向器 Ryan Coogler. She said she also texts Coogler, 36, 问 “how he is.”
“I’m not going to delay that anymore because tomorrow’s not promised,” Wright said. “Since Chad died, I’m so afraid to lose people.”
“You think you have time, and that’s the thing I’ve learned,” 她补充说. “These things make you realize it’s important to reach out to people you love.”

The actress also opened up to 守护者 about how she learned of Boseman’s death, noting that she woke up in her apartment and found an email saying “my condolences,” which surprised her. “我像, ‘My condolences for what?’ ”
After attempting to reach out to Boseman, she found herself unsuccessful and turned to her other 黑豹 副歌星, Daniel Kaluuya, to find out the truth.
“我像, ‘Bro you have five seconds to tell me this is not true? This is horrible. What’s going on?’ And there was this dead silence,” Wright recalled. “我像, ‘I think this is true, but I’m just asking you to tell me that it’s not.’ And he didn’t.”
She then said that Kaluuya, 33, eventually broke the news to her after she told him she had been trying to contact Boseman.
“… He said ‘Tish, the family … ,’ and the second he said that I just lost it,” 她说. “I was punching my apartment up, I was screaming. I was just so angered.”
Wright admitted to 种类 earlier this month that she experienced a “downward spiral” after Boseman’s death, adding that it “haunted” her that she “couldn’t say goodbye to him” or have her “黑豹 family to share in that moment.”
The script for 黑豹: 永远的瓦坎达 had to be rewritten by Coogler following Boseman’s death, and the director had conversations with Wright about moving forward without the star.
最终, Wright said she thinks Boseman would have been proud of the new film in an interview with NBC晚间新闻.
“The emotions are really raw. We really just gave our hearts to this and gave the truth of what we were feeling to the project. Definitely needed to balance it,” ” Wright said. “Because there is a lot of adventure, a lot of humor in this movie. But also a strong feeling of purpose and a strong feeling of love towards our brother.”
