Lupita Nyong’o has paid tribute to Chadwick Boseman on the first anniversary of her Black Panther co-star’s death. Boseman, 43, died following a private four-year battle with colon cancer.

He was best known for playing the lead role in Marvel’s ground-breaking superhero blockbuster Black Panther and earned posthumous acclaim for Netflix drama Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

A year on from his death, Nyong’o said his legacy lives on.

Alongside a picture of the pair laughing together, she wrote on Instagram: “I did not know that I could miss both his laughter and his silence in equal measure. I do. I do…

“One year after his passing, the memory of @chadwickboseman remains this alive in me.”
