The more I hear about this man the more I see why he was chose for the role that made him so famous. Chadwick Boseman seems to have been just a wonderful human being. As it stands he truly seems to have been the best of what we can offer, in appreciation, humility and kindness. So many people have come forward to talk about how he had a spark of decency that most of us have lost. The latest person to speak about Chadwick was actor Sienna Miller.
She starred alongside him in the very excellent 21 Bridges. Not only did Chadwick advocated to have Sienna in the film, but also made sure she was paid properly for it.
When going into the production Sienna requested that the studio pay her a certain amount. The studio refused to meet it, despite the film having a huge budget. Sienna at this point became very hesitant as this is not the first time she has been in this situation. So in steps Chadwick, who used his salary to get her to amount that she deserved.
“Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”
At this point I will say that no one should have been put in this situation, we need to continue demanding better treatment for women in the film industry. Still I am still glad that Chadwick was able to lead by example and do the right thing.
If we could all be a little more like him this world would be a far better place.
