Actor Michael B. Jordan recently shared an emotional moment he had with his late Black Panther co-star Chadwick Boseman during a press tour for the movie. Jordan appeared on Tuesday’s episode of The View, where he reflected on his first-ever meeting with Boseman and how it left a lasting impact on him.
The actor explained that while they were in London, they were getting ready to watch the movie for the first time together, and there was a moment when they looked at each other and knew they were “connected for the rest of our lives.”
“I just remember sitting there and having a real connection, a real moment, with him,” Jordan said.
This exchange happened well before Boseman went public with his health struggles, and Jordan admitted that he had no idea what was going on at the time.
“Obviously I knew nothing at the time, had no idea, so when things unfolded the way they did and we unfortunately lost him, it really stuck with me,” he added.
Boseman passed away in August 2020 at the age of 43 after a private battle with colon cancer. The actor had kept his diagnosis a secret from most people, including his co-stars.
