The world of entertainment was shocked yesterday afternoon when word spread of the death of Lance Reddick.
The extremely popular actor, known for his roles in The Wire, Bosch, Fringe, and John Wick, died suddenly at home at the age of 60. He was thought to be in good health and had been out promoting John Wick 4. He reprised his role as Charon, the concierge of New York’s Continental Hotel, in the project.
Reddick’s wife Stephanie has posted on Instagram, expressing gratitude to fans for their kind words and tributes after he passed:
“Lance was taken from us far too soon. Thank you for all your overwhelming love, support, and beautiful stories shared on these platforms over the last day”.
Reeves issued a joint statement with filmmaker Chad Stahelski, who directed the forthcoming John Wick: Chapter Four.
“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Lance Reddick. He was the consummate professional and a joy to work with, our love and prayers are with his wife Stephanie, his children, family, and friends. We dedicate the film to his loving memory. We will miss him dearly.”
David Simon, who created The Wire, wrote on Twitter:
“Consummate professional, devoted collaborator, lovely and gentle man, loyal friend. Could go on, but no, I can’t go on. This is gutting. And way, way, way too soon.”
Reddick was prolific. So much so that there are still a number of projects to come with him in them. He will be seen as Zeus in the new Disney+ series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. He appears in the White Men Can’t Jump as the father and coach of Sinqua Walls’ character. He will also be seen in John Ridley’s Shirley Chisholm biopic Shirley which follows America’s first Black congresswoman, with Reddick playing her campaign manager.
