In The Wire and John Wick, Lance Reddick played a prominent role. He was 60.
He passed away naturally, according to a spokesperson for him at Portrait PR, who confirmed the news. This week, the actor and Keanu Reeves promoted John Wick 4.
Lance studied drama at Yale with Angela Bassett in the early 1980s; he first gained notoriety in the 2000s playing Cedric Daniels on The Wire for five seasons.
Lance portrayed Daniels, a police officer who advances through the ranks from lieutenant to central to the commissioner.
Later, he played Phillip Broyles and Chief Irvin Irving, respectively, in the cult TV series Fringe and Bosch.
He co-starred in the first John Wick movie with Keanu Reeves in 2014 as Charon, a New York hotel concierge, and has since appeared in all three sequels.
On March 24, 2023, the fourth film will be made available.
Alongside Walker Scobell and Jessica Parker Kennedy, Lance was also cast as the Greek god Zeus in the upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians television series, a Disney adaptation of the same-named book series.
Lance was a big animal lover with four dogs, and his last social media posts were tributes.
“I enjoy giving my pets care both on and off-screen, which is unsurprising. He captioned an Instagram photo of himself surrounded by four puppies, saying, “@officialhardrock makes things simple by offering a full range of @johnwickmovie dog apparel at @hardrockhotels.
“Unleashed locations and a special National Puppy Day event to support @animalleague at @hardrockhotelnyc. Please read my account for more details. “.
His most recent tweet featured a video of his dogs barking, and as he chuckled into the camera, “And the beat continues… dogsoftwitter,”.
Stephanie Reddick, his wife, and their children Christopher and Yvonne all survive Lance.
