Simone Ledward Boseman Opens Up About Husband Chadwick

In her first interview since his passing, Chadwick Boseman’s widow, Simone Ledward Boseman, discussed her late husband for “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. During the COVID-19 lockdowns, she talked with Whoopi Goldberg about his life, legacy, and failing health.

Simone says these past two years have been the most difficult of her life. “When things truly started to spiral, it was COVID. The result was that nobody felt compelled to leave their home because everyone was inside.

“It seemed like a crazy coincidence that we were able to be inside and here with family all at once. And during this terrible, frightening, unpredictable time, everyone in the world is also experiencing this togetherness?’ she asked.

After Chadwick played James Brown in “Get On Up,” Simone got to know him. Two years later, he received a stage 3 colon cancer diagnosis. They maintained close contact throughout the epidemic, according to Simone, and married just before he passed away on August 28, 2020. I can’t believe I was so fortunate, Simone exclaimed. “I find it hard to think I’ve come to love this person. Additionally, I won their love.

While Chadwick gained worldwide recognition in 2018 for his role as T’Challa in “Black Panther,” the public remained ignorant of his deteriorating health. When Chadwick passed away, the film’s sequel, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” nearly abandoned by director Ryan Coogler, is set to open in theatres on November 11.

Simone told Goldberg, “I met this gentleman who is this great dude, and suddenly I became a global superstar. “And it seemed to happen overnight after ‘Black Panther’ came out.” According to People, Howard University, where Chadwick graduated, has now renamed its College of Fine Arts and established a scholarship programme in his honour.

Simone informed Goldberg, “We have four scholars. “One of them graduated this past year and was very proud to be the first Boseman scholar of the first Chadwick Boseman College of Fine Arts graduating class,” the author said.

Before studying drama at Howard and Oxford, the South Carolina-born actor spent his formative years competing in basketball and martial arts, according to Rolling Stone. Even though Chadwick gave his all on the screen, his wife still misses the real “Black Panther” actor.

She admitted, “Some days, I’m doing worse than I’m willing to accept. I sometimes perform better than I feel confident stating. Grief truly moves in, you know.
