Millions of fans around the world were speechless this Friday after learning that actor Lance Reddick was found dead at his home. It was the TMZ portal that announced the tragic news. Born on June 7, 1962, Reddick had established himself as a renowned actor after participating in important audiovisual projects such as The Wire, John Wick and Horizon Zero Dawn, among others.
After the news broke, the last movements of the actor in life have been analyzed to the millimeter, and it is surprising that he seemed apparently happy and healthy in his last video, taken just two days before his death. And it is that, as we have been saying, the death of Lance has been a shock for the fans, since the star of John Wick had been publishing regularly on his social networks this week.
In what would be his last video, a grinning Lance appears in high spirits as he sings The Whispers' soul hit 'And The Beat Goes On' in reference to his boisterous dogs barking in the background. He captioned the post: "And the beat goes on...
"I can't believe you're gone, you left so suddenly, so young. We will never forget you, you were and will continue to be great. May he rest in peace," said another fan. "They knew it, those dogs; I'm telling you RIP, a hero to many, protector of all as I know him, and the actor whose heart carried his work," said another follower. At the time of his death, Lance was in the middle of a promotional tour for the new John Wick installment, in which he played the janitor Charon.
Just a day before his tragic death, he had uploaded a photo of himself snuggling up with his three dogs at home, in a promotional Instagram post about Hard Rock Hotels and National Puppy Day. On Wednesday night he was supposed to attend the John Wick 4 premiere, along with Keanu Reaves, but he didn't show up. Reddick did not give details about why he was absent. According to some media, he also had several professional commitments scheduled, such as visiting The Kelly Clarkson Show next week.
The actor passed away "suddenly" and of "natural causes," as revealed by his agent, Mia Hansen, after his body was discovered at his home in Studio City, California, at 9:30 a.m. m. of Friday. Now his followers say goodbye to him completely devastated, but they promise to never forget his good work in front of the cameras.
