Lupita Nyong'o calls the cancer storyline in A Quiet Place: Day One "therapeutic"

Actor Lupita Nyong'o, who played a terminally ill cancer patient in A Quiet Place: Day One said her storyline in the alien-invasion film was "very therapeutic" after she lost her Black Panther co-star Chadwick Boseman to colon cancer in 2020.

Speaking to People Magazine, she said, "It was scary to have to go there," about playing a character who "is really facing their mortality, even before this apocalypse takes place, and whose life is slipping between her fingers. That was daunting to have to go there, psychologically and emotionally."

Nyong'o also mentioned that Chadwick Boseman's death "shook her to the core". "In the end, it was actually very therapeutic because I had just experienced not too many years ago the death of Chadwick Boseman, which shook me to my core,” she said. “I definitely was thinking about that a lot."

She continued, "When we think we have all the time in the world, we can really take people for granted and experiences for granted."

Last year, Nyong'o paid tribute to Boseman by writing, "Death is hard to understand, maybe even harder to accept. But the love generated from the life he lived will fuel every anniversary marking his absence. Chadwick may no longer be in our photos, but he will always be in our hearts."

The prequel spin-off to the John Krasinski/Emily Blunt horror series centers around a new set of characters, played by Lupita Nyong'o, Joseph Quinn, and Alex Wolff, while A Quiet Place Part II star Djimon Hounsou reprises his character.
