Chadwick Boseman's 'Da 5 Blood's Co-Star Clarke Peters Regrets Judging Him on Set

Clarke Peters is speaking out after hearing of Chadwick Boseman‘s shocking death from colon cancer last week.

The 68-year-old actor, who worked with Chadwick on Da 5 Bloods, revealed he does have regrets from judging the Black Panther star while on the set of the Spike Lee film.

“When I look back at that time, I have to say with a little bit of regret that I probably wasn’t the most altruistic in that environment. But hindsight teaches us a lot of things,” he shared while speaking with Good Morning Britain.

He continued, “What I’m addressing is basically, my wife asked what Chadwick was like. I was really excited to work with him. I said, ‘I think he’s a little bit precious.’ And she said, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Because he’s surrounded by people who are fawning over him.’”

“He’s got a Chinese practitioner who’s massaging his back when he walks off set. He’s got a makeup lady who’s massaging his feet. His girlfriend is there holding his hand,” Clarke recalled. “And I’m thinking maybe the Black Panther thing went to his head.”

Now, looking back and realizing that Chadwick was actually fighting for his life in the battle with cancer, Clarke regrets his judgement of him, and got emotional thinking about how he did.

“Now I have to…I regret even having those thoughts because they were really looking after him.”

Earlier today, it was revealed only a select few actually knew what Chadwick was going through.
