Lance Reddick’s wife has broken her silence after his sudden death.
Stephanie Reddick took to her late husband’s verified Instagram account on Saturday and posted several profile photos of Reddick, including one of him playing Commander Zavala. In the caption, Stephanie also thanked fans for the “overwhelming” love and support during this very difficult time.
“Lance was taken from us way too soon. Thank you for all of your love, support and great stories shared on these platforms over the past day,” she shared in the caption. “I see your messages and I can’t begin to express how grateful I am to have them. And to the thousands of Destiny players who paid tribute to Lance, thank you. Lance loved you as much as he loved the game. “
Stephanie also said donations can be made to Mom Cares in Baltimore, her hometown. Mom Cares serves poorly supported mothers with NICU experiences by providing prenatal and postpartum doula care, including transportation, advocacy, self-care opportunities, and nutritious meals to mothers and their families.
Reddick, best known for his work on Thread and the John Wick movie franchise, died on Friday. He was 60 years old.
“Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this morning of natural causes,” his rep confirmed to ET on Friday. “He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick and his children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick. Donations in his memory may be made to momcares.org in Baltimore, his hometown. Lance will be sadly missed. Please respect the privacy of his family right now.”
Following news of his sudden death, Hollywood reacted to the tragedy, including Keanu Reeves and John Wick director Chad Stahelski, who paid tribute to Reddick in a joint statement.
“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the loss of our dear friend and colleague Lance Reddick,” the pair said in their statement. “He was a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. Our love and prayers go out to his wife Stephanie, his children, his family and his friends. We dedicate the film to his loving memory. We will miss him dearly.”
