Black Jesus star Slink Johnson said his co-star and good friend Charlie Murphy had his down days but never complained about health issues while on set. According to Slink, Murphy was a “man’s man” who suffered in silence and never showed any signs of how deep his medical condition was.

The comedian reportedly hid his battle with Leukemia from his “Power” castmates as well. Slink said he will always remember the late actor for his strength, but most importantly the love for his three children.

Charlie Murphy played an annoying landlord named Vic on 2014 Adult Swim show. He passed away on Wednesday morning at 57.
