'Black Panther 2': Lupita Nyong'o Reveals Cast Visited Chadwick Boseman's Grave

Actress Lupita Nyong'o has shared that the cast paid tribute to their late co-star Chadwick Boseman before the start of filming for the highly anticipated 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'.

Nyong'o, 39, who reprises her role as Nakia from the 2018 film was featured on Ebony's cover article and talked about the sequel.

The actress revealed that before filming began on the sequel, the entire cast visited the grave of Chadwick Boseman.

Boseman was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, though he kept the diagnosis private apart from his inner circle. 

He passed away after a four-year battle with the ailment in 2020.

In the interview, Nyong'o revealed: "We visited his resting place before we started filming and we had that moment as a cast.

"We went with the new cast who hadn’t met him as well.

"It was our way of continuing this journey. It really doesn’t feel like we have anything to prove to his spirit.

"I feel very, very centered about how we brought him along with us."
