Last month, the sudden death of the successful actor Chadwick Boseman deeply upset both the actors who knew him and everyone who loved him. With his role in the movie Black Panther, he left an indelible mark in everyone’s mind. Although death may seem sudden to those who do not know, He was a secret warrior. The 43-year-old actor was fighting colon cancer even while filming his important films.
After the death of the actor, all the people who had the opportunity to work with him or at least knew him shared their memories and spoke about his character, work discipline, respect for his work, respect for people, and his beautiful heart.
Another famous name that spoke about Boseman, who managed to leave a very good place in everyone, was Sienna Miller. She shared his feelings about Chadwick Boseman. The actor’s sudden death deeply saddened her. Last year, the two starred together in the cop thriller movie ’21 Bridges.’ Boseman, who was also the producer of the film, contributed to Sienna Miller playing the role of detective Frankie Burns.
Sienna explained that Boseman tried very hard to get her in this movie because he admired her work. Boseman’s effort did not go down the drain, and although Miller was considering taking a break from work, she agreed to be in the film with Boseman.
Here’s what she 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 when I 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.”
Boseman’s effort to get Miller to appear in the film was not limited to this, but he also gave her a share of his own salary so that she would receive a higher wage for her acting.
Here’s what she said:
“This was a pretty big budget film, and I know that everybody understands about the pay disparity in Hollywood, but I asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to. And because I was hesitant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was an inconvenient time, I said, ‘I’ll do it if I’m compensated in the right ended way.’ And Chadwick up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”
Upon this unexpected behaviour of Boseman, Miller explained that he had a character, generosity that was unprecedented in this industry. Miller emphasized that no one has ever given such support nor been so respectful before.
Here’s what she stated:
“That kind of thing just doesn’t happen. He said, ‘You’re getting paid what you deserve, and what you’re worth.’ It’s just unfathomable to imagine another man in that town behaving that graciously or respectfully.”
“In the aftermath of this I’ve told other male actor friends of mine that story and they all go very very quiet and go home and probably have to sit and think about things for a while. But there was no showiness, it was, ‘Of course I’ll get you to that number, because that’s what you should be paid.'”
