Recently, Letitia Wright talked about the injury she had while filming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in August 2021. Observe the reason she is “still digesting it.”
Following a terrifying incident that occurred on the set last year, Letitia Wright is being open about her recovery.
The actress, 29, recently opened up about being admitted to the hospital in August 2021 after falling off a stunt rig while filming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Letitia stated to Variety on November 9 that she was still absorbing it. It was incredibly upsetting, and I’m still processing it in counseling.
Producer of the movie Nate Moore told the publication that the actress who plays Shuri, the younger sister of late actor Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa, was riding a motorcycle when it “clipped a median and sheared the bike off, and it crashed.”
Production on the Black Panther sequel was put on hold as Letitia recovered from a fractured shoulder and concussion she suffered as a result of the accident.
The news of Letitia’s injury reached director Ryan Coogler over the phone, and he admitted that it was very difficult for him to hear.
He explained, “It was about how you can imagine. “My goodness, I adore these actors. That’s my sister, Chad’s sister. Imagine receiving the news that your younger sister is injured. It is the absolute worst thing ever.” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige acknowledged the increased emotion on the Wakanda Forever set following Chad’s loss in 2020 from colon cancer “Any production happening to anyone was awful. It was especially difficult on this already emotionally taxed production.”
In January 2022, Letitia returned to the set and revealed that she had a “fantastic, great, great medical support” team to assist her in readjusting.
The Black Mirror alum remarked, “I’m simply quite pleased of myself. “I’m incredibly proud of Ryan [Coogler] and the entire team for just having the fortitude to overcome obstacles along the way. I bawled like a baby once I was done filming.”
