Co-star Sienna Miller has now spoken out about the late Boseman...
via: GettyAnd what he did to ensure she received equal pay was truly amazing.
On August 28th, the tragic news shocked us all.
via: GettyWhile 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...
Black Pather completely revolutionized the film industry.
We'd never seen anything like this before.
And even outside of the storyline, this movie broke barriers.
via: IMDBWith 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.
via: IMDBThe 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.
And one of the main reasons for this was the cast members...
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.
That's why he talked about the pressure that came about with such a big role.
via: IMDBHe 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."
Even though Boseman seemed pretty happy and excitable on his socials, fans pointed out that he didn't look well in more recent times...
Then it all made sense when the announcement was made...
And on the 28th of August, 2020...

On that note, RIP Chadwick Boseman. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world & you legacy will forever be… https://t.co/OY6K1CPWFg— Sitting Down With The Sisters (@Sitting Down With The Sisters)1599221824.0
The late actor has left us with incredible movies to cement his legacy in the industry.
via: GettyAnd 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...
via: GettyAnd Sienna Miller has now spoken out with a story proving just that.
Miller starred in the 2019 movie 21 Bridges with Boseman...
via: IMDBAnd it turns out that Boseman had a lot to do with the actress's role and her paycheck.
She spoke with Empire Magazine recently...
via: Getty"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.
via: IMDB"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.
via: Getty"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.’"
via: GettyRest in Peace, Chadwick.
