Keanu Reeves, who starred in John Wick 4, paid tribute to Lance Reddick at the movie’s premiere.
Reddick played Charon again in the movie before passing away on March 17, a few days before the release.
During the red carpet event for John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves remembered his co-star while highlighting and admiring his qualities.
“Lance was a beautiful person, [a] special artist, a man of grace and dignity, and such a passion for his craft,”Reeves told Deadline.
He continued, “and to have the chance to work with him over 10 years and four films is something that is very special to me and it expletive sucks he’s not here.”
Director Chad Stahelski also remembered Reddick telling Deadline, “When you have someone so close pass so suddenly it’s always tricky. He was a great man, a great human [and] we’re all just fortunate enough to have spent the last 10 years of our lives working with him.”

“He was a mentor, a friend, a great human being and I think the best way to help remember him and celebrate him is never forgetting how much he touched us” he added.
The chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Joe Drake dedicated the film to Reddick and the audience gave the late actor a standing ovation in his honor.
