Natalie Martinez has described Chadwick Boseman as the "epitome of a gentleman".

The 36-year-old actress worked with the late actor - who tragically passed away from colon cancer in 2020 at the age of just 43 - on the 2016 thriller 'Message from the King', and has nothing but wonderful memories of him, especially of the way he completely put her at ease when filming their "racy" scenes.

In an interview with US Maxim magazine, she said: "He was the epitome of a gentleman. Every time I was with him I'd get so happy cause he was so humble, so sweet, always so nice. We has some pretty racy scenes in 'Message from the King'. When we shot them, he was a class act. I was super comfortable. He was always making sure everything's okay with me He was an actor's actor, where I definitely felt like I got stuff out of him and vice versa. I was really fortunate to shoot with him."

Natalie landed her film debut in 2008's 'Death Race' alongside Jason Statham and after 13 years in the business she still loves "play pretend".


She said: "My whole idea of success in this business is to continually work. That, to me, is a successful career. And I'm proud to have gone this long and stayed in the game this long through all the changes in Hollywood. So, I have such a blast. I mean, c'mon, I get to play pretend all day. This is so much fun!"

The 'End of Watch' star is ready to take her career to the next level by landing a superhero role, and she would also love to be in the running to be the first-ever female James Bond once Daniel Craig steps down from the role of 007 following the release the delayed 'No Time To Die' later this year.

She said: "I would love to be the [first] female James Bond. That would be amazing ... S***, make me a superhero, I'm down!"
