Other major credits included sci-fi series Fringe and films Angel Has Fallen and Godzilla vs. Kong.

He was set to star as Zeus in the upcoming Disney+ series Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

The Wire co-star Wendell Pierce wrote: "A man of great strength and grace. As talented a musician as he was an actor. The epitome of class. An sudden unexpected sharp painful grief for our artistic family.

"An unimaginable suffering for his personal family and loved ones. Godspeed my friend. You made your mark here. RIP."

Fringe co-star Jarred Harris tweeted: "No! I loved working on Fringe with him. Gracious, thoughtful & wickedly funny.

"Later, we tried 2 get an indie Othello off the ground. Every actor has a graveyard of regrets, populated by projects you can’t let go of. That’s 1 of mine. He’d‘ve been magnificent. Ad Astra my friend."

Oscar-winning director and musician Questlove tweeted: "I can't take it no more. RIP Lance Reddick."

Filmmaker and actor Stephen Ford also wrote: "We love you lance reddick", accompanying the post with a picture of the actor.
