Lance Reddick, best known for his role as Charon in the “John Wick” franchise, has reportedly died.
Lance Reddick, an actor best known for his roles in the “John Wick” franchise and the HBO series “The Wire,” has reportedly died.
He was 60.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that Reddick was found at his Studio City home around 9:30 a.m. Friday.
While the cause of death is unconfirmed, officers believe it to be natural, TMZ reported.
His passing comes days after he skipped the premiere of “John Wick 4” – starring Keanu Reeves – which took place on Wednesday in New York City.
The Post has reached out to Reddick’s and Reeves’ representatives for comment.
Before his “John Wick” fame, playing hotel manager Charon, he portrayed Cedrick Daniels, a fictional Baltimore police officer for five seasons of “The Wire.”
The Baltimore native also starred in “Bosch,” “Lost” and “Oz,” among a number of other titles. His last released movie was “John Wick 4.”
“The character was just the kind of character that I never got to play,” he told IMDb of his “John Wick” character in 2019. “Ever since ‘The Wire,’ I’ve played a lot of intimidating authority figures who talk a lot, so to play this kind of typical servant whose very taciturnity I found fascinating.”
He was set to appear in the upcoming projects “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Shirley” this year, as well as reprising his role as Charon in the spin-off “Ballerina.”
