Actor Lance Reddick passed away at age 60.

NASHVILLE, TN — Last Friday’s sudden and unexpected passing of actor Lance Reddick at 60 has saddened and shocked the acting world.

Reddick was celebrated earlier this week at the Los Angeles premiere of “John Wick-Chapter 4.” Reddick played the character Charon in all four films, and both star Keanu Reeves and others in the cast and crew cited his work ethic and personality as vital to the success of the franchise.

The Baltimore native had a very successful career. He was probably best known for his long running role in the HBO series “The Wire,” but he also starred in such other shows and films as “Bosch” and “The Fringe.”
