The Emmy-nominated stunt performer, Janeshia Adams-Ginyard, paid tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman at the premiere of the Marvel’s sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever last Wednesday.
The actress and pro-wrestler had a detailed portrait of Boseman’s face painted on her back, which she displayed on the purple carpet for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at the Dolby theatre in Los Angeles, California.
Rocking full body paint from head-to-toe, Adams-Ginyard’s colourful, tied-up braids — along with her beaming smile — completed the epic tribal look.
Adams-Ginyard, 38, has over 50 credits as a stunt double with roles in the MCU as a member of the Dora Milaje in the first Black Panther movie, Avengers: Infinity War and Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, her warrior finally gets a character name: Nomble.
Boseman died in 2020 at age 43 of colon cancer. After his 2016 diagnosis, he kept the news private for four years until his death, which shocked friends and fans around the world.
The movie will be released in the United States on November 11.
