Actress Lupita Nyong’o discusses filming Black Panther 2 after the tragic loss of co-star Chadwick Boseman
It was clear that he was gone, and we all felt it, but we had each other, so we were able to lean on each other. I think that was the only way to move on, to lean into it and be there for each other,’ the 39-year-old actress said on Good Morning America.
“It was good to make this with a group of people who knew him and had seen his light and felt his love,” she said. “We could commiserate with each other and really lean on each other.”
Lupita said that all of the movie’s characters had to deal with loss. Playing a character who was sad helped Lupita get over the loss she was feeling in real life.
Lupita said, “Nakia is a little further along in the stages of grief than I was, so it helped me get through my grief to work on this role.” The star was seen leaving the Kelly and Ryan morning show on Tuesday wearing a purple dress with circles of sheer fabric and high heels.
The Kenyan-Mexican Academy Award winner has been on a busy press tour because her new movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever comes out on November 11 and is expected to be one of the biggest hits of the year. On GMA, she used three words to describe her new movie: “moving, daring, and life-affirming.”
Lupita also went to the Sirius XM studios with her co-stars, where they talked more about their late co-star. Director Ryan Coogler looked sharp in a navy pleated suit, Capri parachute pants, pulled-up navy socks, and white kicks.
He had short hair, a well-kept beard, a moustache, and black-rimmed glasses, and he kept a gold medallion with the face of Boseman close to his heart. Danai Gurira was also at the Sirius XM event. She looked pretty in a long black, red, and yellow dress and black pointy heels.
Gurira is best known for playing Michonne on the AMC horror drama series The Walking Dead. Her character Okoye has been in Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Winston Duke’s black and yellow button-up shirt, brown pants, and dress shoes made him look fit.
Coogler had said that after Boseman died, he would leave Hollywood, but he changed his mind and decided to keep working on the sequel. The director said he got through it by thinking about the time they worked together, looking at old photos and videos, and remembering what they talked about.
Duke had short hair and a well-groomed beard on his face. He also wore dark glasses. Winston is an actor from Tobago. He is best known for playing M’Baku in the Marvel movies Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
He was also in the horror movie Us by Jordan Peele. Letitia Wright looked stylish in a white wraparound blazer, black pants, and black boots with a shiny finish.
The actress from “Death on the Nile” cut her hair short and wore dark glasses and a silver necklace. Letitia Wright, who has been nominated for an Emmy, has been one of the most interesting young actresses in the business for more than a decade.
Fans think that Letitia’s character could be the new hero now that Boseman’s character died in a tragic accident. The star has taken on the role of Shuri again in the Marvel sequel.
