THEIR LAST ENCOUNTER

McClain was able to do a panel with the “Black Panther” star last year and noticed no difference in how he carried himself and interacted with others, despite his immense fame following the film’s release.

Despite his condition, Boseman lived his life to the fullest and worked on different films, including “Da 5 Bloods,” “Marshall,” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

Although the “Descendants” actress did not expound on their last encounter, she noted that Boseman “imparted wisdom” on her, as he did with many others.
