A native of South Carolina, CHADWICK BOSEMAN (T'Challa/Black Panther) graduated from Howard University and attended the British American Dramatic Academy at Oxford, after which he began his career as an actor, director and writer. He made his feature film debut in Gary Fleders' drama "The Express," playing football great Floyd Little. His breakout performance came in 2013 when he received rave reviews for his portrayal of the legendary Jackie Robinson in Warner Bros' "42." The film, which had the highest-grossing debut for a baseball movie in Hollywood history, tells the story of Robinson's history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey, played by Harrison Ford.

In 2014, Boseman once again garnered critical praise for his portrayal of James Brown in Universal Pictures' "Get on Up." The biopic, which also stars Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Dan Akroyd and was directed by Tate Taylor ("The Help"), chronicles Brown's rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history. Boseman received the 2014 CinemaCon Male Star of Tomorrow Award, was named one of the Top 10 Best Movie Performances of 2014 by Time Magazine and was awarded a Virtuous Award from the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for his portrayal of Brown.

Boseman made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the African Super Hero "Black Panther" in Marvel Studios' "Captain America: Civil War," in May 2016. Following "Black Panther," he will reprise the role again for Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" in May 2018.

He most recently starred in the title role of Open Road Films' "Marshall" alongside Josh Gad. The film tells the story of Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice, as he battles through one of his career-defining cases as the Chief Counsel to the NAACP. His other feature film credits include: the revenge thriller "Message from the King," which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and garnered Boseman the Vanguard Honor for Achievement in Performance Award at the festival, the independent psychological post-war drama "The Kill Hole" and Summit Entertainment's "Draft Day," opposite Kevin Costner.

Boseman and his writing partner, Logan Coles, have written the script for Universal Pictures' "Expatriate," an international thriller set around a 1970s plane hijacking. Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins ("Moonlight") has recently signed on to direct the project, in which Boseman will star. The duo has also sold an untitled pitch based on the life of Reverend Jeffrey Brown who fought to decrease gang violence to Paramount Pictures.

Boseman's theater directing credits include: "Dutchman," "Wine in the Wilderness," "Indian Summer," "Spear in the Sun," "Colored Museum" and "Six Hits." For the screen he wrote, directed and executive produced the short film "Blood Over a Broken Pawn." His theater acting credits include "Romeo and Juliet," "Macbeth," "Breathe," "Learning Curve," "Willie's Cut and Shine," "Rhyme Deferred," "Bootleg Blues," "Zooman and the Sign" and "Urban Transitions," for which he won an AUDELECO Award for Best Supporting Actor.
