The tragic news was shared by a representative of Boseman earlier today. Confirming that the actor, who has played several iconic roles, was trying to keep his diagnosis under the radar. He never publicly spoke about it despite the struggles that he faced, for whatever his reason for doing so, this news hits fans especially hard. Chadwick Boseman also starred in the recent Spike Lee film, Da 5 Bloods.
But Boseman also starred in roles like Get on Up, where he played James Brown. He is survived by his wife and children, our thoughts go out to those affected by this tragedy. Rest in peace Chadwick Boseman, you will be missed.
