Colman Domingo discusses his late friend and co-star Chadwick Boseman who just won a Golden Globe for their film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and how his performance takes on new meaning. “I think it takes on a great meaning of life. I think that Chad poured everything he had into that role. I don’t know if he knew that would be his last role, but I think he led as if it would be his last. I saw nothing but joy, and hard work and integrity, and good humor. We had such a great time and a great brotherhood together. We really leaned on each other, especially through these deeply emotional scenes about faith.”

He recalls a scene where Boseman’s character is questioning faith, revealing, “It was a struggle for Chad and in the middle of that…I sort of yelled at him to ‘Keep going’ I said, ‘Tell me, tell me, tell me.’ And then, he explodes with that performance that we see on the screen, where he just puts it all in there. And then after that scene, we just embraced each other…It takes on greater meaning for me now, knowing that we had that moment and that was his final.” He adds, “It was that piece of work…you feel like you’re really saying something about who we are as Black people in America and you’re really leaving an indelible imprint on the world. I’m sure he’s proud.”
