Chadwick Aaron Boseman (November 29, 1976 – August 28, 2020)[5][a] was an American actor. After studying directing at Howard University, he landed his first major role as a series regular on Persons Unknown (2010). Boseman's breakthrough performance came as baseball player Jackie Robinson in the biographical film 42 (2013). He continued to portray historical figures, starring in Get on Up (2014) as singer James Brown and Marshall (2017) as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Boseman achieved international fame for playing superhero Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) from 2016 to 2019. He appeared in four MCU films, including an eponymous 2018 film that earned him an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. His final film, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, is scheduled to be released posthumously.

In 2016, Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer. He kept his condition private, continuing to act while receiving treatment. Boseman died in 2020 from complications related to the illness.

Early life

Chadwick Aaron Boseman[6][5] was born and raised in Anderson, South Carolina,[7][8][9] to Carolyn[10] and Leroy Boseman, both African-American.[11] His mother was a nurse and his father worked at a textile factory, managing an upholstery business as well.[12] According to Boseman, DNA testing indicated that some of his ancestors were Krio people from Sierra Leone, Yoruba people from Nigeria and Limba people from Sierra Leone.[13]

Boseman graduated from T. L. Hanna High School in 1995.[14] In his junior year, he wrote his first play, Crossroads, and staged it at the school after a classmate was shot and killed.[12] Boseman attended college at Howard University in Washington, D.C., graduating in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in directing.[15] One of his teachers was Phylicia Rashad, who became a mentor.[12] She helped raise funds, notably from her friend and prominent actor Denzel Washington,[5] so that Boseman and some classmates could attend the Oxford Mid-Summer Program of the British American Drama Academy in London, to which they had been accepted.[12]

Boseman wanted to write and direct, and initially began studying acting to learn how to relate to actors.[16] After he returned to the U.S., he graduated from New York City's Digital Film Academy.[17][18]

He lived in Brooklyn at the start of his career.[12] Boseman worked as the drama instructor in the Schomburg Junior Scholars Program, housed at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York.[6] In 2008, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career.[19]

Career

Boseman acted on stage in multiple productions, winning an AUDELCO award in 2002, and he also directed and wrote plays.[20][21][22] Part of the Hip Hop theater movement, his play-writing included Rhyme Deferred (co-writer and performer), and Hieroglyphic Graffiti.[20][23][24] Boseman's script for Deep Azure was commissioned by the Congo Square Theatre Company in Chicago, and was nominated for a 2006 Joseph Jefferson Award for New Work.[25][20] He directed a number of theater productions, and directed, wrote, and produced the short film, Blood Over a Broken Pawn in 2007, which was honored at the 2008 Hollywood Black Film Festival.[20][26]

In 2003, Boseman was cast in his first television role, an episode of Third Watch.[27] That same year, Boseman portrayed Reggie Montgomery in the daytime soap opera All My Children,[28] but stated that he was fired after voicing concerns to producers about racist stereotypes in the script; the role was subsequently re-cast, with Boseman's future Black Panther co-star Michael B. Jordan assuming the role.[29] His early work included episodes of the series Law & Order, CSI: NY, and ER.[6] In 2008, he played a recurring role on the television series Lincoln Heights and appeared in his first feature film, The Express: The Ernie Davis Story, as running back Floyd Little.[30] He landed his first regular role in the 2010 television series Persons Unknown.[30]

Boseman's breakthrough role was in the 2013 film 42, in which he portrayed baseball pioneer and star Jackie Robinson.[30][31] He had been directing an off-Broadway play in East Village when he auditioned for the role,[32] and was considering giving up acting and pursuing directing full-time at the time.[33] About 25 other actors had been seriously considered for the role, but director Brian Helgeland liked Boseman's bravery and cast him after he had auditioned twice.[34][15] Robinson's widow, Rachel Robinson, commented that Boseman's performance was like seeing Jackie again.[23] The same year, Boseman also starred in the independent film The Kill Hole, which was released in theaters a few weeks before the film 42.[35]

Boseman at the Deauville Film Festival in 2014

In 2014, Boseman appeared opposite Kevin Costner in Draft Day, in which he played an NFL draft prospect.[36] Later that year, he starred as James Brown in Get on Up, doing some singing and all of his own dancing.[37] In 2016, he starred as Thoth, a deity from Egyptian mythology, in Gods of Egypt.[38] Boseman was one of the few actors of color featured in the film, which had drawn criticism for depicting a predominantly white cast playing Egyptian characters. Agreeing with the criticism, Boseman said it motivated him to accept the role to ensure one Egyptian deity in the film would be of African descent.[12]

In 2016, he began portraying the Marvel Comics character T'Challa / Black Panther, with Captain America: Civil War being his first film in a five-picture deal with Marvel.[39][40] He headlined Black Panther in 2018,[41] which focused on the character and his home country of Wakanda in Africa. The film opened to great anticipation, becoming one of the highest-grossing films of the year in the United States. He reprised the role in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, which were released in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Both films were the highest grossing of the year they were released, with Endgame going on to become the highest-grossing film of all time.[42]

Boseman portrayed Thurgood Marshall in the biographical film Marshall in 2017. Set years before he became the first African American Supreme Court Justice, the movie focuses on one of Marshall's early cases. It was premiered at Howard University, which both Boseman and Marshall had attended.[43][44]

In 2019, he starred in 21 Bridges, an American action thriller film directed by Brian Kirk, as an NYPD detective who shuts down the eponymous 21 bridges of Manhattan to find two suspected cop killers. It was also announced that Boseman was cast in the Netflix war drama film Da 5 Bloods, directed by Spike Lee.[45] The film was released on June 12, 2020.[46] Lee, in choosing Boseman for the divine-like character of "Stormin" Norman, said, "This character is heroic; he's a superhero. Who do we cast? We cast Jackie Robinson, James Brown, Thurgood Marshall, and we cast T'Challa."[47]

Appraisal

According to film critic Owen Gleiberman in Variety, "Boseman was a virtuoso actor who had the rare ability to create a character from the outside in and the inside out [and he] knew how to fuse with a role, etching it in three dimensions [...] That's what made him an artist, and a movie star, too. Yet in Black Panther, he also became that rare thing, a culture hero".[48] Similarly, reviewer Richard Brody in The New Yorker finds the originality of Boseman's formidable acting technique in his ability to empathize with the interior lives of his characters and render them on screen as fully and completely belonging to the character.[49] He was uniquely able to capture and portray the dignity of his characters, according to New York Times critic Wesley Morris.[50] The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw wrote of the actor's "beauty, his grace, his style, his presence [...] These made up Chadwick Boseman's persona [and he became] the lost prince of American cinema[,] glorious and inspirational".[51]

Personal life

Boseman began dating singer Taylor Simone Ledward in 2015.[52] The two reportedly got engaged by October 2019, and they later married in secret, as revealed by Boseman's family in a statement announcing his death.[53][52]

Boseman was raised a Christian and was baptized. He was part of a church choir and youth group and his former pastor said that he still kept his faith.[54] Boseman had stated that he prayed to be the Black Panther character before he was cast as the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[55]

Illness and death

Boseman was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, which eventually progressed to stage IV before 2020.[5] He had never spoken publicly about his cancer diagnosis. During treatment, involving multiple surgeries and chemotherapy, he continued to work and completed production for several films, including Marshall, Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, and others. Boseman died at his home as a result of complications related to colon cancer on August 28, 2020, with his wife and family by his side.[56][57][58]

Response

Many fellow actors and other celebrities paid tribute to Boseman via social media following the announcement of his death, including a number of his Marvel Cinematic Universe co-stars. Marvel Studios president and CCO Kevin Feige called Boseman's death "absolutely devastating", writing: "Each time he stepped on set, he radiated charisma and joy, and each time he appeared on screen, he created something truly indelible [...] Now he takes his place [as] an icon for the ages".[59][60] Co-stars from Boseman's other films also paid tribute to him.[61] Former U.S. president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama commented on the heroism Boseman demonstrated in his life and career.[62]

On August 29, 2020, the day after Boseman died, the tweet in which his family announced his death on his Twitter account became the most-liked tweet ever, with more than 6 million likes in under 24 hours,[63][64] and accumulating over 7 million by August 31, far displacing the previous record holder.[65]

Boseman's alma mater, Howard University, tweeted in reaction to Boseman's passing, "It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of alumnus Chadwick Boseman who passed away this evening. His incredible talent will forever be immortalized through his characters and through his own personal journey from student to superhero! Rest in Power!"[66]

Major League Baseball and the Los Angeles Dodgers, the franchise for which Robinson played when the team was at its former home of Brooklyn, New York, issued statements honoring Boseman, in light of his acclaimed portrayal of the player.[67][68] Several publications noted Boseman died on the observance of Jackie Robinson Day,[b] seven years after his having portrayed Robinson.[69][70] Prior to the fifth game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA playoffs, Boseman was honored with a moment of silence, alongside Cliff Robinson and Lute Olson.[71] When Lewis Hamilton won the 2020 Belgian Grand Prix, he dedicated the win to Boseman.[72]

Governor of South Carolina Henry McMaster ordered the Statehouse flags be lowered to half-staff on August 30, 2020, in honor of Boseman, who was born and raised in the state.[73] Also on August 30, ABC (which, like Marvel Entertainment, is owned by Disney) aired Black Panther without commercials, followed by a retrospective of Boseman's life and career titled Chadwick Boseman — A Tribute for a King.[74][75] The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards ceremony was also dedicated to Boseman.[76] On August 28, 2020, a Change.org petition was started, seeking to replace a Confederate monument in his hometown of Anderson with a statue of Boseman, which collected more than 50,000 signatures within less than a week, surpassing its original goal of 15,000 signatures.[77]
