‘Degrassi’ star Jahmil French reportedly dead at 29

“Degrassi” star Jahmil French has reportedly died at the age of 29.

Joshua Safran, the executive producer of French’s 2019 project “Soundtrack,” confirmed the the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

“I can confirm my good friend, co-worker, and all around inspiration, Jahmil French, passed away yesterday,” Safran, tweeted. Only posting because I see the story getting out there. I will have more to say about him later. Right now we’re all just processing this devastating news.”

The last known rep for French, who was best known for his role as Dave Turner on the teen series “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” didn’t immediately get back to Page Six.

A number of French’s co-stars also took to social media with tributes.

“Heartbroken over the loss of our friend Jahmil French … So full of energy and fun. He was always dancing. A true talent and a great friend. We will all miss you so much Jahmil,” his “Degrassi” co-star Annie Clark tweeted on Tuesday alongside a video of French dancing.

Christine Prosperi, also of “Degrassi” fame, shared photos of herself and French, writing, “My heart is so heavy.. Truly one of a kind. Rest In Peace 🕊.”
