“I admired his journey even more because he dealt with something that we didn’t know about until he passed away, and I’m trying to contain it,” Wright, 28, expressed during her appearance on Tamron Hall’s daytime talk show on Monday (Sept. 26).
“But I never got to say goodbye to my brother [Boseman].”
The young Guyanese actress also spoke about her Black Panther: Wakanda Forever family and her highly discussed on-set injury.
“So when this unfortunate event happened and I had to take about three months out, I went back home and my mom received me with tears in her eyes and I just had to sit with myself and decide ‘how are you going to bounce back from this?”
“How are you going to get back on the set to fulfill your purpose that God blessed you with?’ And I could hear [Chadwick Boseman] tell me that I could do it. I didn’t feel like I could do it. I didn’t feel like I could go back,” said Wright. “I just felt like once I got the healing I needed and I went back, I finished stronger.”
Wright is set to reprise her role as Shuri in Wakanda Forever, which is slated to hit theaters on Nov. 11.
