Lance Reddick’s death on March 17, 2023, has left millions of fans devasted. But curiosity soon took over devastation as fans questioned the cause of his death, his health, and his illnesses.
Lance Reddick was well-known for his roles as Cedric Daniels in The Wire, Phillip Broyles in Fringe, and Chief Irvin Irving in Bosch. He was also known for his roles in several well-appreciated films such as the John Wick franchise and Angel Has Fallen.
If movies weren’t enough to display his acting prowess, he moved to television, where he graced the screen again with his skills. Some of his famous shows are Oz, Lost, and Resident Evil.
Alongside his acting career, Reddick was also a gifted musician and has lent his voice to several video game characters.
Before his death, Reddick was involved in two upcoming movies, one television series, and in Hellboy: Web of Wyrd video game.
Lance Reddicks Illness And Health Before His Passing
When the actor was nowhere to be noticed at the red-carpet premiere of John Wick 4 in New York City on Wednesday, many keen fans questioned his absence.
No reasons were revealed for his absence at the red-carpet premiere until his death was confirmed on Friday morning. Fans are wondering whether he was struggling with his health before his sudden death.
It is still unknown as to why Lance Reddick gave the John Wick 4 premiere and other events a pass, especially since nothing about his health and illness has been disclosed publicly. It should be, however, noted that Reddick has been working on multiple projects, including movies, television series, and video games, so he probably gave the premiere a miss to spend the day resting.
His two upcoming projects, White Men Can’t Jump and Shirley, are scheduled to release later this year.
If you are a Lance Reddick fan, you are probably not familiar with the feeling of disappointment as Reddick never fails to live up to his fans’ expectations every time he comes to the screen. Although we cannot change something as sudden as death, we can surely look forward to his legacy that will live on through his upcoming movies, as well as his famous films and TV series.
Friends and fans have expressed condolences and paid tribute to Reddick and his family after his death.
