In his latest interview for a new film, Oscar-winner Kevin Costner reflects on his friend Chadwick Boseman and the legacy he leaves behind.

Yellowstone legend Kevin Costner, like many, is still feeling the loss of Chadwick Boseman. Boseman, a prolific modern actor and truly brilliant talent and soul, tragically left us after passing of colon cancer. As he kept his battle private, fans were absolutely shocked and devastated by his surprising – and seemingly immediate – loss.

The world will never forget Boseman, however. Colleagues like Costner are keeping his legacy alive. In his latest interview, Coster has loving praise for the late Black Panther star.

“He was just a very available young man,” Costner smiles of Boseman. “He was so thoughtful. Such a loss.”

Costner goes on to say that it was the way Boseman “conducted himself that’s living on. We need to understand that how we conduct ourselves is equally important to the things that we maybe never accomplish. Or to the things that we feel we need to accomplish.”

“it’s just how we – conduct outselves. That’s a mirror we want to be able to stare back into.” And to Kevin Costner, Boseman was the absolute pinnacle of these traits.

“While chatting with ET Canada’s Sangita Patel, Kevin Costner reflects on his former “Draft Day” co-star Chadwick Boseman and the legacy he left behind after his passing. Plus, the actor previews his new thriller “Let Him Go”.”

Kevin Costner Mourns Death of Costar Chadwick Boseman

Yellowstone‘s Kevin Costner also shared a touching tribute for the death of Chadwick Boseman upon his passing.

“Heartbroken to hear of @chadwickboseman’s passing,” Costner writes. “He was such a light to everyone around him and to the world. He leaves an incredible legacy.”

Boseman died in his Los Angeles home of Stage 4 colon cancer. The actor’s estate released a press statement on his tragic, and untimely death:

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman,” it reads. “Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV. A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”

Chadwick Boseman was only 43 at the time of his passing.

Kevin Costner will return to the small screen for Yellowstone fans with Season 4 in 2021.
