Lance Reddick, a prolific actor who played Charon in all four John Wick films and was a series regular on The Wire, Fringe & Bosch among dozens of other roles spanning a quarter-century, died today. He was 60.
His rep at Portrait PR confirmed the news, saying he died of natural causes but not providing other details.
The actor had been doing interviews for the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4 starring Keanu Reeves just this week.
Reddick began his screen career in the mid-1990s, guesting on such series as The Nanny and New York Undercover. Later in the decade, he appeared on the big screen in pics including Great Expectations and The Siege before recurring on HBO’s Emmy-winning 2000 miniseries The Corner, which was based on David Simon’s book.
That same year, he joined the cast of another gritty HBO drama, Oz, appearing in a dozen episodes. Around that time, Reddick also did an arc on Law & Order: SVU.
But perhaps his most famous role was would come next.
Reddick was cast as Cedric Daniels in HBO's The Wire.
During his Wire run, Reddick also did arcs on crime dramas Law & Order and CSI: Miami and guested on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He also recurred on Lost & appeared in episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia & Numbers before landing his another role for which he’d be well known.
Lots more guest TV spots followed for Reddick after Fringe wrapped, including The Blacklist & Wilfred. Then John Wick came calling.
Reddick co-starred in the 2014 film that launched the action franchise as Charon, the concierge at New York’s Continental Hotel who often works with Keanu’s titular character. He appeared in all of the Wick films, including Chapter 4, which opens wide on March 24.
He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick & children Yvonne Nicole Reddick & Christopher Reddick.
