Michael B. Jordan Had to Seek Therapy After Playing Killmonger in ‘Black Panther’
In a new interview on Oprah Winfrey’s SuperSoul Conversations, Jordan said that he found it difficult to shake off the character’s “dark and heavy” energy after filming wrapped.
“I went to therapy, I started talking to people, starting unpacking a little bit,” he said. “I was by myself, isolating myself.”
Jordan said that he had to “shut out love” in order to get into the mindset of Killmonger, a character who is motivated by revenge and a desire to rule Wakanda. This, he said, took a toll on his mental health.
“I was in a very vulnerable state,” he said. “I was coming off playing a character who was very much unlike myself. And I was dealing with a lot of stuff that I had never dealt with before.”

Jordan said that therapy helped him to process his emotions and develop coping mechanisms.
“Therapy was something that definitely helped me kind of get out of that and kind of get a clean slate,” he said.
Jordan’s story is a reminder that even celebrities can struggle with their mental health. It is also a reminder that therapy can be a helpful tool for anyone who is struggling.
