Hollywood Star Lance Reddick Dead At Age 60

 March 18, 2023

Actor Lance Reddick was active in Hollywood so recently that all of his films aren't even out yet.

"John Wick: Chapter 4 will be released on March 21. However, Google lists the movie's release date as May 27, 2023. Wikipedia lists yet another release date, March 24.

Despite passing away suddenly and at only age 60, Reddick's cause of death has been declared to be "natural causes," the actor's publicist claimed.

Reddick was best known for his leading role as Baltimore police lieutenant Cedric Daniels on the HBO series The Wire.

The star's death was announced on March 17. Just the previous day, Reddick posted three photos to social media showing him relaxing on a couch with his dogs.

Reddick said back in 2009 that he owes his career to his strong work ethic. He said he knew he was prone to be overlooked for roles because he was black and had to put in extra effort to compensate for that. He added:

I’m an artist at heart. I feel that I’m very good at what I do. When I went to drama school, I knew I was at least as talented as other students, but because I was a Black man and I wasn’t pretty, I knew I would have to work my butt off to be the best that I would be, and to be noticed.
