Lance Reddick’s wife Stephanie is thanking fans for their well-wishes and condolences following the death of the late Bosch and John Wick actor. Reddick, 60, died of apparent natural causes on Friday.
Stephanie wrote on her husband’s social media accounts alongside a gallery of photos of the actor: “Lance was taken from us far too soon. Thank you for all your overwhelming love, support and beautiful stories shared on these platforms over the last day. I see your messages and can’t begin to express how grateful I am to have them. And to the thousands of Destiny players who played in special tribute to Lance, thank you. Lance loved you as much as he loved the game. Donations may be made to momcares.org in Baltimore, his hometown.” Reddick voiced the character of Commander Zavala in the 2014 video game “Destiny” and its 2017 sequel “Destiny 2.” Reddick was the game’s longest-running and most-used voice cast member, and Reddick had a strong relationship with the “Destiny” fan community, frequently posting videos of himself playing the game and recording fan-requested dialogue in character.
In addition to starring in all four of the “John Wick” movies, Reddick was known for his roles on “The Wire,” “Fringe,” “Bosch,” “Oz,” “White House Down,” “Godzilla vs. Kong” and “Lost” among many other film and TV projects. Many of Reddick’s former co-stars and other celebrities, including Ben Stiller, Wendell Pierce, Stephen King and James Gunn mourned his death on social media. Reddick’s ‘John Wick: Chapter Four’ co-star Keanu Reeves and the film’s director of Chad Stahelski paid tribute to Reddick in a joint statement: “We are deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Lance Reddick. He was the consummate professional and a joy to work with. Our love and prayers are with his wife Stephanie, his children, family and friends. We dedicate the film to his loving memory. We will miss him dearly.”
