As Queen Ramonda, Angela Bassett had to hold down the fort with the help of her daughter Shuri, played by Letitia Wright, in the wake of her son T’Challa’s death, played by the late Chadwick Boseman, who unfortunately passed away in August 2020. She also added that the loss of Chadwick Boseman transformed her role from acting to portraying a mother who lost her son.

Award-Winning Role in Black Panther 2

Angela Bassett shared that the role of Queen Ramonda was not particularly easy to play. She further shared that the stunts were not easy to shoot and her character was also heavy as she had to portray multiple emotions, keeping the people around her safe. In the movie, she died protecting Riri Williams, and though the scene was very hard for some people to watch, it was very beautifully played.
