Chadwick Boseman Is Set to Receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Chadwick Boseman will always be a star. Nearly three years after his death in 2020, the actor will officially receive his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, along with celebrities including Chris Pine, Kerry Washington, and Gwen Stefani. The new additions to the Hollywood landmark were announced on June 26, with singer-songwriter Otis Redding also being honored posthumously. Boseman joins legends like Tupac Shakur and Carrie Fisher, both of whom also received their stars after their deaths.
According to People, Walk of Fame Chair Ellen K. said this year’s stars were carefully chosen by other former honorees from across all different branches of the entertainment industry. “The Committee did an amazing job choosing these very talented people,” she said. “We can’t wait to see each honoree’s reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway.”
Boseman died after battling colon cancer on August 28, 2020. He was most well known for his portrayal of T’Challa in Marvel’s “Black Panther.” Celebrities and costars like Michael B. Jordan have previously paid tribute to Boseman by sharing photos and tributes every year on the anniversary of his death. “Not a day goes by bro . . . Love and miss you but I know you still with us,” Jordan wrote on social media in 2021. Now Boseman’s legacy will be commemorated permanently, solidifying his place in cinematic history.
