Chadwick Boseman's Brothers Detail His Final Days In New Interview

Chadwick Boseman‘s brothers have opened up following the star’s shocking death earlier this summer.

In an interview with the New York Times, the Black Panther actor’s older brothers, Kevin and Derrick, opened up about his life and his final days.

Kevin, a dancer, said Chadwick was inspired by his own move to New York City to follow his dreams, and Chadwick followed soon after.

“A lot of people think making it means becoming an A-list movie star,” Kevin shared. “I didn’t force that. I just knew that if Chad wanted to work in the arts, he would find a way and take care of himself.”

“He always did his best,” he added. “His best was incredible.”

Derrick, a pastor, then spoke about Chadwick‘s last days, and revealed that Chadwick had told him, “‘Man, I’m in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game.’”

Pastor Boseman said that he realized just how tired Chadwick was and he was ready to go.

“When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, ‘God heal him, God save him,’ to ‘God, let your will be done,’” he said. “And the next day he passed away.”

Earlier this week, the first look images from Chadwick‘s final movie were revealed. See them here…
