Actor Granville Adams, best known for his work on the prison drama “Oz,” passed away at 58 after a prolonged battle with cancer. News of his death was shared on Instagram Sunday by the HBO series’ executive producer and showrunner Tom Fontana.
“Goodnight, sweet prince/and flights of angels sing thee to they rest,” producer-screenwriter Fontana, 70, wrote along with a photo of the late actor.
Adams had revealed he was battling cancer in December 2020 after sharing an Instagram post of himself in a hospital bed.
The actor’s “Oz” costars flocked to social media to mourn his passing.
Winters, who played scheming Irish inmate Ryan O’Reily on the show, posted a touching Instagram tribute to his deceased co-star.
“I first met Granny in 1992 and I immediately drank the Kool Aid,” he wrote. “His smile was infectious, his chuckle was intoxicating. He never, ever spoke ill of anyone and I defy anyone who knew him to say anything negative about this man.”
He continued, “Granville was beloved, period. A humble, beautiful soul who just elevated the afterlife to a whole new level. You will be missed my friend. You are my brother and I’m a better human being for knowing you. RIP G.”
“I lost my brotha today after a long battle with cancer, I don’t do well with loss because I’m unfamiliar with it,” tweeted fellow co-star Kirk Acevedo, 49, who portrayed Miguel Alvarez in the HBO show. “Yo Granny we’ll be chopping it up on the other side one day. Until then… Rest easy my friend.”
