“I know there are people out there who are silently going through what I went through”

In Essence magazine,Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright reveals how her faith helped her heal and prepare for the role of a lifetime:

“I said I wanted to give it up, then went into becoming a Christian. My friends told me about it and I thought it was nonsense and I realized that it wasn’t, that the spirit of God, the holy spirit is very real. And, I realized that and I felt centered.”

The actress added that soon God revealed that she needed to continue her work and find ways to inspire others, which is one of the reasons she’s so open about her faith and her mental health.

“The reason why I share this story is because I know there are people out there who are silently going through what I went through,” Wright told ESSENCE. “It’s a thing that goes on, especially creatives, putting so much pressure on ourselves and it leads to depression.”
