The lead actor of ‘ Black Panther’
Chadwick Boseman has revealed that American actor, director, and producer Denzel Washington paid for his college acting classes.
Speaking on NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jimmy Fallon, he said he had to thank Denzel Washington after his Rolling Stone article was published because Denzel paid part of his tuition through a scholarship program while he took a summer class studying drama at Oxford University.
He said “ I didn’t have money to pay for this, and so she [Rashad] got a few of her friends together and, you know, they paid for us to go. I didn’t know at first–when I came back–and I’ve basically been holding this secret my whole career, [but] when I came back I got a beneficiary letter. And it said, ‘Denzel Washington paid for you.’ You know, and I was like, ‘What?.
He went further to say that he always wanted to thank Denzel, but he waited to be more successful.
