Letitia Wright Recalls a Time Where She Was 'Depressed & Full of Anxiety'

Letitia Wright is on the cover of W magazine’s new TV portfolio issue!

Here’s what the 24-year-old Black Panther star had to share with the mag…

On her early career: “I was depressed and full of anxiety. I think it was that pressure to be accepted, to be somebody. When you’re looking outside of yourself for happiness and validation, a mean comment on social media can wreck you. I was okay when I was on set, hiding behind my work, but when I wasn’t acting I was full of fear and doubt, trying to fill this void inside of me any way I could: drinking, smoking. It was bad.”

On almost quitting acting: “When I first became a Christian, I said, ‘I’m never acting again. I’m done.’ [Six months later, she said,] God was speaking to me and said, ‘This is your talent, it’s what you’re meant to do.’”

On Black Panther: “I knew Black Panther was going to be impactful, but I didn’t anticipate it would take off in such a maaajor way.”

Star Wars' John Boyega & Black Panther's Letitia Wright Attend Met Gala 2018 Together!

John Boyega walks the red carpet with Letitia Wright at the 2018 Met Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The actors are longtime friends after attending London’s Identity School of Acting at the same time. They went on to star in two of the biggest films ever – Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Black Panther.

Letitia and I were in the same class. It was so special for me to see her in [Black Panther] because I have seen Letitia from when we both had nothing, had no credibility, and wanted our chance. We would sit and after classes, everybody would congregate at a nearby McDonald’s and I remember seeing Letitia and we would speak about our dreams and our visions,” John told The Grio.

FYI: John is wearing a Michael Kors Collection blazer, shirt, and trousers with Tod’s shoes and a The Tie Bar tie. Letitia is wearing a Coach dress and bag with Forevermark jewelry.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Cast Get Together for Global Press Conference!

A majority of the cast of Avengers: Infinity War assembled on Sunday afternoon (April 22) for a press conference in Los Angeles in advance of their big world premiere.

Stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Paul Bettany, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Pratt, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff and Josh Brolin were all in attendance.

Also joining the star-studded cast was directors Joe and Anthony Russo, as well as producer Kevin Feige and moderator Jeff Goldblum.

“‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ is ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’” Chadwick expressed at the event (via LA Times). “It’s not ‘Black Panther 1.5′ or ‘Black Panther 2′ or anything like that. I think we have a strong presence in the movie, and it was great to have some of these people in Wakanda. But it is its own movie.”

FYI: Scarlett is wearing Chanel. Robert is wearing a Missoni t-shirt.
