Chadwick Boseman died suddenly on August 28, and while the actor has long since been synonymous with his turn as Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stories continue to come out about the man’s real-life acts of heroism and generosity. UK magazine Empire‘s new September issue is a tribute dedicated to Boseman, and an interview with Sienna Miller (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Foxcatcher), Bosewick’s co-star in the 2019 action-thriller 21 Bridges, is bursting with anecdotes about his efforts to boost her presence and salary for last year’s movie.
“He produced 21 Bridges, and had been really active in trying to get me to do it,” Miller said. “He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold. So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time whenI really didn’t want to work anymore. I’d been working non-stop and I was exhausted, but then I wanted to work with him.”
