Lance Reddick, best known for his work in HBO’s The Wire, John Wick films, and Bungie’s Destiny games, has died. He was 60. The news was initially reported by TMZ.
Reddick’s reps confirmed his untimely death to Polygon, citing natural causes.
Reddick’s acting career lasted more than 25 years, with parts on HBO’s Oz and The Wire, as well as later programs such as Lost, Fringe, Bosch, and this year’s short-lived Resident Evil series for Netflix.
The actor was also supposed to play the Greek god Zeus in Disney Plus’ upcoming Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Reddick is most known in film as Charon, the hotel manager in the John Wick series. He was slated to participate in a planned spinoff, Ballerina, and will appear in John Wick: Chapter 4 later this month.
Reddick was also a voice actor, having appeared in a number of animated shows and video games, including Destiny as Commander Zavala, Guerrilla Games’ Horizon franchise as Sylens, and Critical Role’s The Legend of Vox Machina. He played Hellboy in the upcoming game Hellboy: Web of Wyrd.
Reddick was well-known — and well-liked — for connecting with Destiny fans on his personal Twitter account by releasing videos of him recording in his closet or recording fan-requested lines using his Zavala character voice. He’d been a part of that game from its inception in 2014.
His wife Stephanie Reddick and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick survive him.
