American actor Granville Adams, popular for his performance as Zahir Arif on HBO’s “Oz,” is dead at age 58. The deceased had a long struggle with cancer.
The news was shared in a tribute posted by “Oz” executive producer Tom Fontana on his Instagram on Sunday.
“Goodnight, sweet prince/and flights of angels sing thee to they rest,” Fontana wrote.
“Oz” star Dean Winters launched a GoFundMe campaign earlier this year to help pay Adams medical care. The campaign had gone on to raise $99,800 exceeding its $69,500 goal.

“As many of you know, our friend and brother Granville Adams has been diagnosed with cancer. In only a few months, the medical bills have skyrocketed to astronomical levels. Not only does he have to battle this ruthless disease, but now he has to fend off the hospital bills the insurance company refuses to pay. In this quarter alone, the unpaid bills have piled up to $69,550. We want to gather together and show Granville our love by clearing this quarter’s bills, giving Granville concrete support in his fight against this vicious disease.” Fontana wrote on GoFundMe in January.
Adams was a cast member in all six seasons of “Oz,” portraying Zahir Arif in 48 episodes. After being incarcerated for possession of stolen goods, Arif undergoes a transformation and reforms himself through Islam to become one of the more tranquil prisoners in the Oswald State Correctional Facility.
Adams also had a role on NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street” and appeared in “Empire.”
