'Black Panther' Star Letitia Wright Flaunts Impeccable Style in Blue Suit for a Magazine Cover

Letitia Wright looked elegant and powerful as she posed in a sky blue suit for The Hollywood Reporter’s magazine cover.

Following the premiere of Marvel’s hit franchise, “Black Panther,” actress Letitia Wright became an overnight sensation and a symbol of Black women empowerment.

Millions have swooned over the character she played, Shuri, a brave, young, and intelligent princess from the fictional country of Wakanda, defying most stigmas about women.

GRACING THE MAGAZINE COVER

Recently, Wright appeared on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, stunning in an all-sky blue ensemble. Her buttoned-up suit and matching slacks made her look both powerful yet fashionable.

The actress shared a few photos from the magazine shoot, alongside John Boyega and director Steve McQueen, standing out in her look. She captioned one of them: 

“A Queen amongst Kings.”

ON-SCREEN CREDITS

Wright’s decision to pursue a career in acting came after watching “Akeelah and the Bee,” starring Keke Palmer, and realizing that it would be fascinating to play a relatable character and be captured on camera.

The actor was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in 2016 that progressed to Stage IV in the end.

Before playing the tech-savvy sister of Black Panther, Wright took part in stage production and several small-screen roles. She starred in an episode of the hit Netflix series, “Black Mirror,” and appeared in the movies “The Commuter” and “Ready Player One.”

FILMING WITHOUT BOSEMAN

Soon, she will reprise her role in the “Black Panther” sequel, which sadly won’t be the same without the lead star, Chadwick Boseman, who played Black Panther and T’Challa.

“We’re just still mourning Chad, so it’s not something I even want to think about,” Wright previously said about filming the sequel. “The thought of doing it without him is kinda strange. We’re just grieving at the moment.”

Boseman passed away on August 28, 2020, following a private battle with colon cancer. Many of his friends and colleagues have since paid tribute to the star on social media.

CANCER BATTLE

The actor was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in 2016 that progressed to Stage IV in the end. Through his illness, Boseman fought hard and never gave up.

He did not let his career slow down and instead starred in several films while undergoing chemotherapy and surgeries. Among his movies were “Da 5 Bloods,” “Marshall,” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

In 2018, the Marvel star visited St. Jude’s Hospital to see terminally ill kids and brought joy and laughter into their rooms without telling others that he too was dealing with a terminal sickness. Today, Boseman is remembered as one of the most inspiring Hollywood actors.
