WASHINGTON — Lance Reddick’s wife has broken her silence following the unexpected death of her husband.
Stephanie Reddick took to her late husband’s Instagram account on Saturday to thank fans for their “overwhelming” support. The “John Wick” actor died Friday morning at age 60 of natural causes.
“Lance was taken from us too soon. Thank you for the outpouring of love, support and beautiful stories shared across these platforms over the past day.” Stephanie wrote. “I’ve been seeing your messages and can’t express how grateful I am for them.”
Paying homage to her late husband, the actor’s wife shared several pictures. He even included a picture of Commander Zavala, voiced by Reddick in the video game “Destiny.”
“And to the thousands of Fortune players who played in a special tribute to Lance, thank you. Lance loved you as much as he loved the game,” he added.
Stephanie said donations can be made to momcares.org in Reddick’s hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.
Reddick’s death comes just days before the theatrical release of “John Wick: Chapter 4,” in which he stars.
“John Wick – Chapter Four” will be dedicated to Reddick, said director Chad Stahelski and star Keanu Reeves, who said in a statement that they were saddened and heartbroken by the loss.
In the latest installment of the franchise, Reddick reprized his role as Charon, a multi-talented concierge at the Continental Hotel.
Her upcoming projects include the 20th-century remake of “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Shirley,” Netflix’s biopic of former congresswoman Shirley Chisholm. She was also scheduled to appear in the “John Wick” spin-off “Ballerina” as well as “The Kane Mutiny Court Martial.”
He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick.
