The entertainment world is mourning the loss of actor Chadwick Boseman.

The 43-year-old star of Black Panther passed away at his home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side.

According to a statement from his reps on social media, he had been privately battling colon cancer for the last four years.

He never spoke about it publicly but a number of his movies including Avengers: Infinity War, 21 Bridges, Da 5 Bloods and Black Panther “were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”

Hollywood is remembering him for the art he so beautifully brought to the screen but also his incredible strength. Below are some messages from those who knew him:

“It was meant to be for Chadwick and me to be connected, for us to be family. But what many don’t know is our story began long before his historic turn as Black Panther. During the premiere party for Black Panther, Chadwick reminded me of something. He whispered that when I received my honorary degree from Howard University, his alma mater, he was the student assigned to escort me that day. And here we were, years later as friends and colleagues, enjoying the most glorious night ever! We’d spent weeks prepping, working, sitting next to each other every morning in makeup chairs, preparing for the day together as mother and son. I am honored that we enjoyed that full circle experience. This young man’s dedication was awe-inspiring, his smile contagious, his talent unreal. So I pay tribute to a beautiful spirit, a consummate artist, a soulful brother…”thou aren’t not dead but flown afar…”. All you possessed, Chadwick, you freely gave. Rest now, sweet prince.” #WakandaForever
