GRANVILLE Adams, who played Zahir Arif in the hit HBO drama Oz, passed away at age 58 after a battle with cancer.
His costar, Kirk Acevedo, announced his death on Sunday in a heartfelt Instagram post.
“I lost my brotha today after a long battle with cancer,” Acevedo wrote.
“I don’t do well with loss because I am unfamiliar with it. You Granny we’ll be chopping it up on the other side one day.
“Until then … Rest easy my friend.”
Adams appeared in dozens of episodes of Oz during its run from 1997 to 2003.
His character, a Muslim inmate named Arif, first appeared in guest spots before moving onto a recurring supporting role.
