Lance Reddick, a veteran character actor best known for key supporting roles in films like “John Wick” and “Godzilla Vs. Kong” and TV series like “Fringe” and “The Wire,” has died at the age of 60.

The actor was found in his home in Studio City Friday morning at around 9:30 a.m., according to media reports. The cause of death has, at this time, not been revealed, though it is alleged to be natural. His rep at Portrait PR confirmed the news.

Born June 7, 1962, in Baltimore, Maryland, Reddick studied music as a high schooler and eventually received a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music. He moved to Boston in the 1980s and attended the Yale School of Drama, receiving a Masters of Fine Arts degree in 1994.

The actor was currently promoting his fourth appearance as Charon, the loyal and beloved concierge at the Continental in “John Wick: Chapter 4.” That was just one high-profile property on which he put his unique stamp, offering a mix of subtle menace and above-it-all bemusement to all five seasons of “Fringe” and the later seasons of “Lost.”

He is likely best known for his regular role as Cedrick Daniels who rose through the ranks of the Baltimore Police Department through all five seasons of David Simon’s “The Wire.” That modern classic ran on HBO from 2002 to 2008.

His final two film appearances will be in “White Men Can’t Jump” and “Ballerina,” a “John Wick” franchise spinoff starring Ana De Armas in which he will again play Charon. He will also voice Zues in Disney+’s upcoming “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” show.
