What Taylor Simone Ledward Said After Accepting the Award On Boseman’s Behalf
When Taylor Simone Ledward realized that her husband had been nominated for the award, she began to reflect on all that was going on in their lives at the time, when an ailing Chadwick Boseman was filming for the series.
“And what a beautifully aligned moment it really is that one of the last things he would work on would not only be revisiting a character that was so important to him and his career and to the world, but also that it be an exploration of something new, diving into a new potential future — particularly with everything he spoke about purpose and finding the reason that you are here on the planet on this very time,” she said.
“You can’t understand your purpose unless you’re willing to ask, ‘What if,’ unless you’re willing to say, ‘What if the universe is conspiring in my favour, what if it’s me?’ Thank you so much for the honour – Chad would be so honoured, and I’m honoured on his behalf,” She continued.
