Horizon Maker Guerrilla appreciates the profound influence of Lance Reddick
Update: Guerrilla Games, creator of the Horizon series, has released a tribute to actor Lance Reddick, following news of his passing earlier this week. In the post, it thanks the star for bringing Silence’s character to life, and praises her for her “generous warmth and unmistakable presence.” The message adds that she “had a profound impact not only as part of our cast, but on our community”.
Bungie has already released a tribute, as Reddick starred as Commander Zavala in the Destiny games. “Lance Reddick was an incredible presence on screen, in fortune, and most importantly, in person,” it wrote.
Original article: Legendary actor Lance Reddick, best known for his roles on HBO’s The Wire and the John Wick movie franchise, has died. According to that TMZwho say the star’s body was found at his Studio City home earlier today.
While the 60-year-old has made his name in television and movies, he has also starred in several massive video game franchises, including the PlayStation exclusives Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West, as well as Destiny 2. Just last year he portrayed Albert Wesker in Netflix’s Resident Evil reimagining.
Reddick is almost certain to reprise his role as Silen in next month’s Horizon Forbidden West expansion Burning Shores, as he was seen doing motion capture work in a since-deleted Instagram post late last year.
As recently as this week he was in the process of doing press for the latest John Wick film, and was scheduled to appear on The Kelly Clarkson Show in the coming days. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
