Taking to her Facebook account, Lupita, who played Nakia in the Marvel film, shared a photo of herself with Chadwick all happy, followed by a long note honouring the actor's memory.

Lupita said it is hard to believe he is gone and that she will live to remember him forever for his amazing personality.

''I write these words from a place of hopelessness, to honour a man who had great hope. I am struggling to think and speak about my friend, Chadwick Boseman, in the past tense. It doesn’t make sense," Lupita wrote.

''The news of his passing is a punch to my gut every morning. I am aware that we are all mortal, but you come across some people in life that possess an immortal energy, that seems like they have existed before, that are exactly where they are supposed to always be – here! That seem ageless… Chadwick was one of those people,'' she added.

Lupita could not wrap up her tribute without remembering their first encounter during the production of Black Panther.

''I didn’t know him for long, but he had a profound effect on me in the time that I did. When we came together to make Black Panther, I remember being struck by his quiet, powerful presence. He had no airs about him, but there was a higher frequency that he seems to operate from.
"You got the sense that he was fully present and also somehow fully aware of things in the distant future. When I was around Chadwick, I wanted to be better, less petty, more purposeful.''

''He was fuelled by love, not fear. He moved quietly, deliberately and without imposing himself or his ideals on others. And yet he also made damn sure that his life meant something. He was unwavering about that. He cared so deeply about humanity, about Black people, about his people.
