LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Letitia Wright, the actress who played Shuri, sister of Chadwick Boseman's King T & # 39; Challah in "Black Panther," posted an emotional video homage to her brother on screen a few days after his death.
Boseman, 43, died Friday after a four-year battle with colon cancer. He did not make his illness public, and his death stunned his fans and much of Hollywood, including his comrades in the seminal Marvel film about a fictional, technologically advanced African country.
That hurts. really hurts

Wright narrates the nearly six-minute video of calm images of the sun rising over water, trees, stars, flowers and the sky. The actress described Boseman as an angel on earth who brought calm to every room he went into.
"Words can't describe how I feel. How we all feel that we've been forced to lose you," she says.
In a voice that is getting rougher, she says, "I didn't know you had that much to do with it. Despite all the odds, you focused on fulfilling your purpose with the time allotted to you."

Marvel had already released a sequel to "Black Panther" which grossed more than $ 1 billion at the box office. Wright says she believed they had more time to laugh and "more moments when I pick you on the set".
Wright, who edited the video himself, later includes footage of the couple hugging at press conferences, showing awards ceremonies, and sitting on a plane with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
"Now we just have to grow all the seeds that you planted on the earth. To bloom, to become even more beautiful," she says. "You are forever in my heart."
