Actor Lance Reddick was found dead on Friday in his Los Angeles home. He was 60.
TMZ first reported the news of his death, which Variety subsequently confirmed.
Representatives for the actor didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment, but a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department told BuzzFeed News that they received a 911 call at 8:45 a.m. requesting medical aid for a person at an address listed for Reddick.
CPR instructions were delivered over the phone to the caller, but when paramedics arrived, they determined that the person was dead.
The spokesperson said they could not identify the deceased person for privacy reasons.
A Los Angeles police spokesperson said officers were called to the same address to respond to a death. “The decedent’s wife called the police,” the spokesperson said.
With a tall frame and serious demeanor, Reddick made a career of playing no-nonsense characters, often in law enforcement.
He appeared in Oz as Detective Johnny Basil, in Fringe as Homeland Security Special Agent Phillip Broyles, and in Bosch as Chief Irvin Irving.
He also played Cedric Daniels, a police officer who rises to the role of commissioner, in HBO’s The Wire between 2002 and 2008.
Reddick also played small law enforcement roles in Law & Order and CSI: Miami.
He also appeared in four episodes of Lost as mysterious agent Matthew Abaddon.
