Michael B. Jordan penned a heartfelt tribute on Monday evening to “Black Panther” co-star Chadwick Boseman, following the 43-year-old actor’s shocking death.
Jordan took to Instagram where he shared an in-depth post about their close friendship along with a series of photos of the two friends.
“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel,” Jordan wrote.
“I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything. I wish we had more time.”
The two actors starred together in “Black Panther,” a Marvel film where Boseman’s character, King T’Challa, faced off against the villain Erik Killomonger, played by Jordan.
The 33-year-old actor recalled one of the final conversations he had with Boseman before he died of colon cancer.
“One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked, and now the truth of that means more to me than ever.”
Years before the two friends appeared together on screen, Boseman turned down a role on “All My Children” because of the stereotypical description of the character. Jordan ended up being recast in the role at the age of 16.
“Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me,” said Jordan.
“You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness. I wish we had more time.”
“The thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are… I wish we had more time,” Jordan said.
“I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes.”
Jordan concluded his tribute, “I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is! Rest In Power Brother.”
