His family admitted that he had been working throughout his illness. “

His films like, Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom were all filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.

Chadwick Boseman’s producing partner Logan Coles explained why his friend continued to work even when he was clearly sick.

Said Logan

“I watched as he gritted his teeth and took deep breaths as he battled the immeasurable pain of tumors and the debilitating effect of chemo in order sit through a scriptwriting session or to arrive on set and act a scene or to be the consummate movie star as we sat through studio pitch meetings. I was in absolute awe of him in these moments. He never let on that he was in any pain or discomfort. He’d just push through.

With silent dignity and resolve to fulfill his purpose. It was his greatest performance. He knew what God put him on this earth to do and he didn’t want people knowing or focusing on his battles and not his work.”

The late actor has been hailed for his bravery and resiliency in the face of his sickness.

He reported for work when he was needed and managed to bring smiles to his fans, engaging with them one on one even though his own world was falling apart.
