Actor Lance Reddick has died aged 60.

The actor’s publicist Mia Hansen while speaking to newsmen said, “Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this (Friday) morning from natural causes”.

He was found dead at his home in Los Angeles and is believed to have died of natural causes.

Reddick rose to prominence for his role in the hit TV show “The Wire” and also played a major role in the “John Wick” movie franchise.

He played the straight-laced and incorruptible police captain Cedric Daniels in the popular US drama “The Wire” set in Baltimore.

Reddick was born on June 7, 1962, in Baltimore, Maryland, to Dorothy Gee and Solomon Reddick.

He studied music at the Peabody Preparatory Institute as a teenager and a summer program teaching music theory and composition at the Walden School.

Reddick studied classical music composition at University of Rochester‘s Eastman School of Music, earning a Bachelor of Music degree.

He attended the Yale School of Drama in the early 1990s, receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1994.

Reddick released his debut album Contemplations & Remembrances in 2007.

In 2014, Reddick appeared as Charon in the action-thriller film John Wick, a role he has reprised in its two sequels.
