(CNN) – Sienna Miller has revealed that Chadwick Boseman reduced his own salary for “21 Bridges” to get her on board the project and ensure she felt fairly compensated.

In a new interview with Empire, Miller said she was sharing the story publicly for the first time because “it’s a testament to who he was.” Boseman privately fought a battle with colon cancer for four years before his death in August.Boseman, who also produced “21 Bridges,” liked Miller’s work and wanted her for the role of detective Frankie Burns, she told the publication.

“He produced ’21 Bridges,’ and had been really active in trying to get me to do it,” Miller said, adding, “He was a fan of my work, which was thrilling, because it was reciprocated from me to him, tenfold.

So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at a time when I really didn’t want to work anymore. I’d been working non-stop and I was exhausted, but then I wanted to work with him.”Boseman fought for Miller.

She called his gesture “astounding.”
