Brian Helgeland, who gave Chadwick his first film, said, “It’s the way he carries himself, his stillness, you just have that feeling that you’re around a strong person,” he further added by saying. “There’s a scene in the movie where Robinson’s teammate, Pee Wee Reese, puts his arm around him as a kind of show of solidarity. But Chad flips it on its head. He plays it like, ‘I’m doing fine, I’m tough as nails, but go ahead and put your arm around me if it makes you feel better.’ I think that’s who Chad is as a person.”

On behalf of my family, we send deep sympathy and love to his family and loved ones. #WakandaForever.
