Lance, who portrays Charon in the latest John Wick film was supposed to make a special appearance on Kelly Clarkson’s show the following week as part of his publicity tour for the film. But he is unable to attend the show.
What is Lance Reddick’s Cause of Deἀth?
Actor Lance Reddick’s official cause of deἀth has been announced, only to be soon contested. Ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease were listed as the immediate causes of deἀth on Reddick’s deἀth certificate, which was initially made public by TMZ early Thursday, March 6, 2023.
Reddick’s lawyer, James Hornstein, released a comment several hours after the initial report:
“I have represented Lance Reddick for many years and continue to represent his wife Stephanie. The coroner statement on the deἀth certificate is not a result of an autopsy. No autopsy was performed on Lance. To my knowledge, no medical examination of Lance during his lifetime ever indicated such conditions”.
“Lance was the most physically fit person I’ve ever known, He exercised daily at his home gym, including extensive cardio work, and the availability of gym facilities was a contractual requirement for his work away from home”.
“He ate as if a dietician was monitoring his every meal. The information appearing on the deἀth certificate is wholly inconsistent with his lifestyle.”
The statement added:
“On behalf of Stephanie Reddick, the deἀth certificate information is not corroborated and is inconsistent with the facts known to the family.”
Agents for the actor released the following statement:
“Acclaimed actor Lance Reddick passed away suddenly this morning from natural causes. Lance was best known for his roles in The Wire, Bosch, Netflix’s Resident Evil and the John Wick films”.
“He is survived by his wife Stephanie Reddick and children Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Reddick. Lance will be greatly missed. Please respect his family’s privacy at this time”.
