A Brief History
On March 17, 2023, people around the world, including we at History and Headlines, were saddened to learn of the passing of the talented American actor Lance Reddick of natural causes.
More than an actor, Reddick was an educated man boasting a BM from the Eastman School of Music and an MFA from Yale. Born in Baltimore in 1962, Reddick became a television and movie actor in 1996, appearing in many film and television productions enjoyed by us, including The Wire, Oz, Lost, Fringe, American Horror Story, Bosch, and Resident Evil, as well as action/adventure films such as Angel Has Fallen and the John Wick films.
Reddick not only entertained millions on the large and small screen, he also lent his voice to more than a dozen video games and even some cartoons. Chances are that you have also been entertained by this talented man.
Sadly, Reddick died at the age of 60, leaving his wife of 12 years and millions of fans behind.
