Lance Reddick, who starred in “The Wire,” “Fringe” and the “John Wick” franchise, has died. He was 60.
The actor died “suddenly” due to natural causes on Friday morning, his publicist Mia Hansen confirmed in a statement to the Associated Press.
Reddick was best known for his leading role as straight-laced Baltimore police lieutenant Cedric Daniels on the hit HBO series “The Wire.” His character headed the narcotics division while contending with corruption within the department.
Wendell Pierce, one of Reddick’s co-stars on The Wire, paid tribute on Twitter. Pierce wrote:
A man of great strength and grace. As talented a musician as he was an actor. The epitome of class. An sudden unexpected sharp painful grief for our artistic family. An unimaginable suffering for his personal family and loved ones. Godspeed my friend. You made your mark here. RIP
