Lance Reddick’s death has taken the world by storm. His upcoming movie, John Wick 4 is set to release soon and everyone was cheering to see the actor alongside Keanu Reeves in the fourth installment of the series. However, the movie would now also mark one of his last works in the Hollywood industry. He has done various other projects, many of which have received much praise.
