I’ve had to process it through therapy. It’s not like I had a two-year break to process it and then came back into the film.” Black Panther – Wakanda Forever: Letitia Wright Opens up on Her Traumatic Accident on Sets of the Marvel Film, Says ‘I’m Still Working Through It in Therapy’.

“We had to start six months after Chad died,” shared Letitia, who stars in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Wright’s entire life outlook has been changed by Chadwick’s death, with the movie star admitting she’s become “afraid to lose people”.

She told the Guardian newspaper: “You don’t know until something happens how it will affect you. You think you have time, and that’s the thing I’ve learned. These things make you realise it’s important to reach out to people you love. The amount of times I text my cast members to tell them I love them, especially Danai (Gurira).”

“I’m always texting Ryan (Coogler, the director of the Black Panther films) that I love him, and asking him how he is. I’m not going to delay that any more because tomorrow’s not promised. Since Chad died, I’m so afraid to lose people.” Letitia also turned to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Notes on Grief

She explained: “She describes how when you go through grief, nothing soothes the pain. You’re just furious you’ve lost this person. All you want is them back. Grief comes like a thief in the night, and it just stays there. And you have to deal with it. You can’t kid yourself that you’re OK today.”
