Actor Lance Reddick has died at the age of 60. In the gaming world, he is known for some well-known roles in Destiny 2, Horizon Forbidden West and Quantum Break. Reddick is best known for his roles in HBO’s The Wire and the John Wick films.
Fans and developers say goodbye to an icon
On March 17, the actor was found dead at his home. As the TMZ reported that the cause of death was unclear, but that it was a natural death.
Reddick should be familiar to some Destiny 2 players. At the very least, you should know his voice all too well, as the actor voiced Zavala, one of the most powerful Titans and well-known NPCs in the game that the Guardians frequently interact with.
On social media, fans bid farewell to Reddick and pay tribute by kneeling on the tower in front of the Commander. A nice gesture.
