Most people will know Reddick from his role as Cedric Daniels in The Wire for most of the 2000s. Moviegoers will recognize him as Charon, the nonchalant concierge at the Continental Hotel of the John Wick franchise.

In the gaming industry, the prolific actor played Sylens in Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West as well as Commander Zavala in both of the Destiny games. Reddick was also one of the main characters of the now-canceled Resident Evil series, playing the role of Albert Wesker.

Lance Reddick's character, Charon, has appeared in other video games outside of the John Wick universe.

Reddick was currently in the middle of multiple projects before his death. In particular, he was doing press tour rounds for John Wick: Chapter 4, which premieres on March 27. He's expected to appear posthumously in Ballerina, a spin-off set in the John Wick universe starring Ana de Armas.

Reddick will also appear in the upcoming Disney+ show, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, as well as Amazon Prime's The Legend of Vox Machina, the modern remake of White Men Can't Jump, and as the voice of Hellboy in Hellboy: Web of Wyrd.
