Lance Reddick, an actor from “The Wire” and “John Wick,” passes away at age 60: Viola Davis and Halle Berry pay tribute

Lance Reddick, an actor best known for his roles in the “John Wick” film series and HBO’s “The Wire,” passed away on Friday. He was 60.

Lance will be sorely missed, according to Hansen.

On the Baltimore crime drama “The Wire,” Reddick was perhaps most known for his portrayal of renowned police officer Cedric Daniels. The actor played the lawyer-turned-lieutenant for all five seasons of the show, directing the Baltimore Metropolitan Department’s narcotics team of detectives in their pursuit of neighbourhood drug dealer Avon Barksdale. The team also included Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West) and Kima Greggs (Sonja Sohn) (Wood Harris).

In the “John Wick” films, he played hotel concierge Charon of the Continental Hotel, which had a significant part. As Winston’s right-hand guy, Charon enjoys a close relationship with him.

“Theirs is a tie that transcends employer-employee and even friendship,” Reddick said to News 18 in a piece that was released on Thursday.

Stephanie Reddick, the star’s wife, thanked the public on Saturday for their “overwhelming love, support, and amazing stories.”

She wrote, “Lance was stolen from us far too soon. I am overwhelmed by gratitude for your messages, which I have seen.

Halle Berry, Idris Elba, Keanu Reeves, Viola Davis, and Ben Stiller, among other Hollywood co-stars, paid tribute to the actor in statements and on social media.

“Shocked!! Speechless!! This gifted, considerate, and wise Monarch is no more!” Posted on Instagram was Davis. “I was fortunate to work with you, and fortunate to know you.”
