Alabama News

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — As the nation mourns the death of Chadwick Boseman, some people in Birmingham remember meeting him on the set of “42.”

Mark Sellors, a local actor in the Magic City, said Boseman was humble and kind enough to take a selfie with him on the set of 42, which was shot in Birmingham, Ala., Macon, Ga. and Chatanooga, Tenn.

“He was Thurgood Marshall, he was James Brown, he was a superhero,” Sellors said. “And a hero to everybody and it is just a shame that he is gone.”

Boseman died at the age of 43 after a four-year fight with colon cancer.
