I think he actually becomes quite important down the line. That's really all I can say without spoilers. Don't want to tag them either just in case someone is browsing on their phone.

PM me if you want to continue the discussion, but I disagree that Payne's role is a 'small one.' I think they'll have no choice but to recast.

Back on topic however, that is really terrible news. Cancer is the ****ing worst.
