Letitia Wright, who played T’Challa’s younger sister Shuri in the 2015 Black Panther, was hospitalized after an accident on the set of its sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. However, her co-star Angela Bassett said Wright is doing well.
“She read a little, but it’s not too bad,” Bassett said in an exclusive interview Entertainment tonight. “You know, something like that will move you, but he’s a little, a little, a little little thing. But she is fine and ready to go. ”
There aren’t many details about the crash but ET reported the incident that Wright, 27, was injured, involving a stunt rig.
However, according to Bassett, everything seems to be on track for the expected film.
“We still have Ryan [Coogler] And Joe Robert Cole, who wrote Black leopard One, so the two of them, this man, this brother, they’re going to bring it up. They love the Black Panthers, they love what they started. As they say, ‘Finish the way you started.’ They started great and they are going to do well too. “
“Every day is just a rule and a celebration of love for our loved ones [Chadwick Boseman], “He added.
Bosman is best known for his role as King T’Challa in the original film. He died last year at the age of 43 after battling colon cancer.
