Chadwick Boseman's Final Text to 'Black Panther' Producer Is So Heartbreaking

Black Panther executive producer Nate Moore is revealing the last text he received from the star of the Marvel movie, Chadwick Boseman. Chadwick tragically passed away at the young age of 43 after a private battle with colon cancer.

Nate revealed their final conversation – via text – was about their work with the Make-a-Wish foundation.

“It was during lockdown, and we worked together to get a young boy a voice note from T’Challa, as well as a package of toys – no easy feat when we weren’t allowed to leave our homes or go to the office,” Nate told People. “But Chad figured out how to make it work because he cared so intently, and in hindsight, so personally.”

“‘It broke me, man,’” Chadwick‘s final text to Nate read. “‘But we need to do that for them. People deserve abundant life, special moments. They’ve been through hell battling disease. If we were able to ease their suffering and bring joy for a moment, and hopefully moments has he goes through the bags, then we made a difference in his life.’”

Nate then added, “Again, hindsight will tell us that Chad felt that way because he too was battling a disease. But I don’t think that’s true. I think that’s just who he was as a man. A leader and a caregiver first, who accomplished both of those things as a performer and as a regular person.”

Another actor shared the last text Chadwick Boseman sent him before his death. RIP.
