Chadwick Boseman Didn't Ever Want to Be an Actor & He Reveals the Reason Why

Chadwick Boseman is on the cover of Esquire‘s summer issue, on newsstands June 5.

Here’s what the 40-year-old Black Panther star had to share with the mag…

On never wanting to be an actor: “I was more so of the mind of the director and the writer. I didn’t want to be onstage and I didn’t want to be on camera. Not at all. My older brother, he’s a dancer; he was also in plays. I would sit in the audience with my mom watching the director, and I was more interested in what he was doing than the performance onstage; it didn’t register that it was something I wanted to do. I became an actor because I was just trying to learn the whole process.”

On Black Panther‘s international success: “Studios will very often tell you that movies with a black lead are not going to work overseas. That was the thing for me—this means something everywhere in the world. It could actually change how studios respond to [black] movies. You can no longer say definitively, ‘Black movies don’t work [outside of the U. S.].’”

On creating Wakanda’s culture: “There’s a shorthand on certain cultural moments that you don’t have to talk about [with a black director]. But in this case, we did have to talk about some things culturally because we were literally creating a culture. There were discussions in a way that there wouldn’t have been if this was totally an African-American cast. In a lot of cases, we were finding similarities cross-culturally. It was a sense of each of us still trying to create this culture together. Because we were trying to create Wakanda, it was a unique experience.”

Chadwick Boseman Explains Funny 'Wakanda Forever' Memes on 'The Late Show'

Chadwick Boseman hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Wednesday (May 16) and was asked about all the hilarious memes that have come from his various variations of the “Wakanda Forever” salute.

“I thought it was funny. I thought Chadwick Bosemant was funny, what people were saying. It’s like a salute, you know?” the 40-year-old actor explained. “If I was in the military and I did this every day, I’m not going to do it the same every time. Sometimes it’s more pedestrian.”

“So that person, whoever I was doing it to at that moment, caught a casual one,” Chadwick added about his less enthusiastic salute. “Three minutes before that, I probably did one that was fully yes!”
