Lance Reddick died on March 17 (ET), leaving Hollywood in shock. The actor was promoting his upcoming film John Wick 4 directed by Keanu Reeves.

The news of Lance Reddick’s death has shocked everyone. The actor, best known for his remarkable work in films such as The Wire and the John Wick franchise, passed away on Friday morning. The 60-year-old actor was found dead at his Studio City home in Los Angeles. In the upcoming film, John Witch: Chapter 4, the late actor will be seen posthumously playing Charon, the concierge at the Continental Hotel in New York City who has appeared in all four installments of the franchise. Following Reddick’s death, the film’s lead actor Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski dedicated the upcoming film to him.

In a statement to EW, the two expressed that they are deeply saddened and saddened to receive the unfortunate news. Reddick wasn’t just his colleague and dear friend, he was someone who was fun to work with, she revealed. While sharing the statement, both also shared condolences for his family amid this difficult situation.

“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Lance Reddick. He was an outstanding professional and a pleasure to work with. Our love and prayers are with his wife, Stephanie, their children, family and friends. We dedicate the film to his loving memory. We will miss him dearly.’

Reddick played Karen, who worked alongside Keanu Reeves’ titular un-retired hitman. Notably, he took care of the lead character’s dog in the second installment and he also appeared alongside John Wick in a gun-toting action sequence in the third. The upcoming film also stars Reena Swayamyama, Laurence Fishburne, Donnie Yen and Bill Skarsgård in key roles.

The plot of the fourth part is set against a backdrop of high-octane action scenes taking place in New York, Berlin, Japan and Paris, as legendary hitman John Wick is pitted against high table globes. With a hefty price tag on his head, Reeves’ character is determined to take out the most powerful players in the underworld.

In addition to John Wick: Chapter 4, Lance Reddick will also be seen posthumously in the upcoming Ballerina spinoff, starring Ana de Armas. The late actor is survived by his wife, Stephanie Reddick, and their two children, Yvonne and Christopher.
