“The Wire” and “John Wick” star dies at 60.
Around 9:30 in the morning on Friday, the body of Lance Reddick was found inside his Studio City home in Los Angeles, California, United States. At this time, the circumstances surrounding his passing are unknown. However, law enforcement sources indicate that it most likely occurred of natural causes.
Lance Reddick is an accomplished actor who rose to fame for his role as a police commander on the Baltimore crime drama “The Wire” and later had prominent roles in the “John Wick” movie franchise and the Amazon series “Bosch.”
Ever since “The Wire,” Reddick told “The IMDB Show” in a video interview, “I’ve played a lot of intimidating authority figures that talk a lot.” And then, in a separate video with The Queensland Times of Australia in 2010, he stated: “Intensity is not something I try to do. It’s just kind of the way that I am.”
He had been participating in a press tour for the fourth film in the “John Wick” franchise, in which he portrays the character of Charon, and he was due to make a special appearance on the show that Kelly Clarkson hosts the following week.
In the action films of the “John Wick” franchise, in which Keanu Reeves plays the titular character, he avoided portraying members of the law enforcement community. In each of the four movies, beginning with the one that came out in 2014, he played the role of Charon, a hotel manager. This month sees the release of the most recent version.
Lance’s birth occurred in Baltimore on June 7th, 1962, and his full name is Lance Solomon Reddick. His parents were teachers; his mother taught instrumental music, while his father taught before becoming a public defender.
Classical composting was one of the subjects that Mr. Reddick focused on during his time at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. He was an accomplished pianist, and in 2010, he released an album titled “Contemplations & Remembrances,” which contained his compositions.
The University of Rochester granted Lance a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, and Yale University awarded him a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. He had a beautiful and prosperous life back then. May his spirit find peace.
