Lance Reddick, star of “The Wire” and “John Wick,” died unexpectedly on Friday morning at the age of 60.
Around 9:30 a.m. on Friday, police rushed to Reddick’s home in the Valley Village neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
The Hollywood actor’s sudden death was confirmed by Reddick’s legal representative, James E. Hornstein. Reddick’s publicist said the “Bosch” actor died from “natural causes.”
“Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this morning from natural causes,” Reddick’s publicist Mia Hansen said in a statement. “Lance will be greatly missed. Please respect his family’s privacy at this time.”
A day before his sudden death, Reddick posted photos on Instagram of him smiling and playing with his dogs. Three days earlier, Reddick posted a video of him singing along with his dogs.

Reddick was a fixture in the “John Wick” franchise as the character Charon. He appears in “John Wick: Chapter 4,” which debuts next week. Before he died suddenly, Reddick had recently been doing interviews to promote the latest “John Wick” movie starring Keanu Reeves.
