Viola Davis Opened Up About Working With Chadwick Boseman On His Last Role

It was revealed that Chadwick filmed his most iconic roles after his diagnosis in 2016, while keeping his illness private.

Based on August Wilson’s award-winning play of the same name, the movie follows Ma Rainey, a blues singer in 1920’s Chicago who deals with struggles of race and relationships in the music industry. Viola stars as Ma Rainey, while Chadwick played Levee, a trumpeter in the band with aspirations of going solo.

“He was thinner,” added the film’s director, George C. Wolf, “But I thought, you know, actors they fast, they do all these things. I also thought he was shedding some of the Black Panther facade. And the leanness and that kind of leanness worked very well for Levee.”
