Actor Lance Reddick, star of 'The Wire' series, dies

American actor Lance Reddick, known for his role as a zealous policeman in the series “The Wire”, died Friday at the age of 60, said his agent. The actor, also famous for his role in the action films “John Wick” with Keanu Reeves, was found dead at his home in Los Angeles, in the Studio City district, according to the specialized site TMZ. The cause of his death is “natural”, explained his agent, Mia Hansen. “Lance will be greatly missed,” she added.

The actor made a name for himself in Hollywood in 2000, thanks to the HBO series “Oz”. He played a detective infiltrated in prison to fight against drug trafficking, which quickly sinks into addiction. But it was with “The Wire” that he really broke through. Often described as one of the best television series of all time, it followed the fight of a police anti-narcotics squad against gangs in the city of Baltimore. Lance Reddick played Lieutenant Cedric Daniels, a conscientious officer and a bit of an idealist.
