Sienna Miller has remembered how the late actor Chadwick Boseman courteously gave up a part of his salary so Sienna could get paid the compensation she claimed when they worked together in a 2019 film 21 Bridges.
Chadwick was associated with the project as a co-producer.
Talking about the incident, Miller said, “I asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to and Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”
Reportedly, Boseman played an important role in getting Miller the role of detective Frankie Burns in 21 Bridges.
In a conversation with a leading magazine, Sienna further added, “He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold. So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time when I really didn’t want to work anymore. I’d been working non-stop and I was exhausted, but then I wanted to work with him.”
Chadwick passed away on August 28 at the age of 43 following a four-year battle with colon cancer.
Reportedly, a day after Chadwick Boseman died due to colon cancer, Twitter announced that the actor’s final post on the microblogging site is the most liked tweet ever.
The tweet is a picture of the actor and his family’s announcement of his death. They wrote, “It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman.
Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV.
A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.
It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther.
He died in his home, with his wife and family by his side.
The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
