US actor Chadwick Boseman, best known for playing Black Panther in the hit Marvel superhero franchise, died of cancer, his family said.
The 43-year-old died at home in Los Angeles with his family by his side.
Boseman had not spoken publicly about his diagnosis.
“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much,” his family said in the statement.
“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.”
