“Imitation is the best form of flattery: Chadwick Boseman I admire your quiet, confident, regal nature. You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T’halla. You led us into the land of Wakanda without ego, without pretence, without fear. We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your gruelling workout regimen,” the Oscar winner, 34, captioned the side-by-side shot.
