Harrison's tribute comes as messages from Hollywood poured in over the weekend following the news of the 'Black Panther' star's death.

Ryan Coogler - who directed the Marvel movie - described Chadwick as a "caretaker, a leader, and a man of faith, dignity and pride" in his tribute, which was issued in the form of a lengthy statement.

Speaking about his friend, he said: "Chad deeply valued his privacy, and I wasn't privy to the details of his illness. After his family released their statement, I realised that he was living with his illness the entire time I knew him. Because he was a caretaker, a leader, and a man of faith, dignity and pride, he shielded his collaborators from his suffering. He lived a beautiful life. And he made great art. Day after day, year after year. That was who he was. He was an epic firework display. I will tell stories about being there for some of the brilliant sparks till the end of my days. What an incredible mark he's left for us."
