And people are still continuing to remember the actor for the kind and generous person he was.

And what he did to ensure she received equal pay was truly amazing.

On August 28th, the tragic news shocked us all.

While appearing in different movies, we had no idea that the late actor was battling colon cancer.

He has left behind some amazing content to remember him by...

Including the legendary movie that is Black Panther.

Black Pather completely revolutionized the film industry.

Back in 2018, Black Panther became the talk of the town as it hit all major big-screens.

We'd never seen anything like this before.

Marvel's superhero movie brought cultural importance to the forefront of a storyline while still maintaining the classic "hero vs villain" trope.

And even outside of the storyline, this movie broke barriers.

With black talent spread across the entire cast and production, Black Panther became more than just a social talking point. It became an artistic celebration of black culture.

In the past, we have struggled to see such overwhelming representation.

The genre typically upholds traditional superhero visuals, as seen with Superman, Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, and Batman, just to name a select few...

But Black Panther saw a whole new story brought to life.

A culture that was once seen as other, brought about celebration in a way that actually brought audiences together to share their love for the genre.

And one of the main reasons for this was the cast members...

In such a strong line-up of actors and actresses, we saw the fusion of old and new black actors including Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Letitia Wright.

But the star of the show was none other than Chadwick Boseman.

The Guardian described him as a man who is helping to "[open] up people's minds."

The forty-two-year-old played the main character, Black Panther.

Even though Boseman made an appearance in Captain America: Civil War prior to this blockbuster, no one really acknowledged the talent and drive behind his character.

That's why he talked about the pressure that came about with such a big role.

He explained how most of it was "brought on himself." "It’s not like it’s actually coming from outside. I think we all placed that pressure on ourselves with this cos we knew what the opportunity was. Everyone knew this was something that had not been done before."

"So you have to get it right."

But it was more than just mental pressure, he was also struggling with his own battles as we found out last month.

Even though Boseman seemed pretty happy and excitable on his socials, fans pointed out that he didn't look well in more recent times...

The first video to raise the most concern was when the star was celebrating Major League Baseball's "Jackie Robinson Day" with his fans, people flocked to social media platforms to express their concerns. The video has since been deleted from his actual Instagram.

Then it all made sense when the announcement was made...

He was going through severe health problems, and that's why his fans were so concerned about his appearance.

And on the 28th of August, 2020...

Boseman lost his battle to colon cancer at the age of forty-three.

Tributes came flooding in for the actor...

And it's clear how many lives he had impacted over the years.

The late actor has left us with incredible movies to cement his legacy in the industry.

And it's no wonder why tributes are endlessly popping up all over the place in order to honor him.

It turned out that behind the scenes, Boseman was an incredibly kind and generous person...

And Sienna Miller has now spoken out with a story proving just that.

Miller starred in the 2019 movie 21 Bridges with Boseman...

And it turns out that Boseman had a lot to do with the actress's role and her paycheck.

She spoke with Empire Magazine recently...

"He produced 21 Bridges and had been really active in trying to get me to do it. He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold," she explained. "He approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time when I really didn't want to work anymore."

Miller admitted that she was "exhausted" at the time, but she didn't want to pass up an opportunity to work with Boseman.

"I didn't know whether or not to tell this story, and I haven't yet. But I am going to tell it, because I think it's a testament to who he was," she then said. "Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for [that I didn't receive]. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid."

Miller's request of pay wasn't met by the studio because of her gender... but Boseman was the one who listened to her.

"It was about the most astounding thing that I've experienced. That kind of thing just doesn't happen. He said, ‘You're getting paid what you deserve, and what you're worth.’"

"It's just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully."

In the aftermath of this, I've told other male actor friends of mine that story. They all go very, very quiet and go home and probably have to sit and think about things for a while. But there was no showiness [with Chadwick], it was, ‘Of course I'll get you to that number, because that's what you should be paid.’"

Truly remarkable.

Rest in Peace, Chadwick.
