Harrison Ford joins others remembering his 42 costar Chadwick Boseman

  Harrison Ford joins others remembering his 42 costar Chadwick Boseman Harrison Ford is most recent Hollywood actor to honor and remember the late Chadwick Boseman, whose death on Friday at age 43 shocked the industry. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, the 78-year-old  Indiana Jones star called Boseman 'as much a hero as any he played.'The pair costarred in the 2013 film 42 which followed the life of baseball legend Jackie Robinson.

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother...”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar...”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
