Reddick, who previously starred on “The Wire,” “Fringe,” and as a character in multiple video game franchises — including “Horizon” and “Destiny” — was an integral part of the “John Wick” franchise. He played Charon, the concierge desk manager at New York City’s Continental Hotel, in all four installments of the action franchise.
Others across the entertainment industry who knew Reddick expressed their grief and honored his memory in their own words. His “The Wire” costar Wendell Pierce posted on Twitter about Reddick, “A man of great strength and grace. As talented a musician as he was an actor. The epitome of class,” and called the actor’s death “an (sic) 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.” Reddick played Lt. Cedric Daniels on “The Wire,” which is often considered among the most seminal television shows of all time.
Others who shared tributes to Reddick included director James Gunn, actors Patton Oswalt, Ben Stiller, and “Fringe” co-star Jared Harris, as well as hip-hop legend Questlove.
