One of Lance’s fellow performers, Ben Stiller, acknowledged his abilities following his passing.
Lance Reddick was a stunning and captivating performer. And a lovely person. He performed the role of Raziel, the waiter turned angel of death, in my mother Anne Meara’s play Afterplay. TheZoolanderstar, 57, posted on Twitter that he was perfect in whatever he did and added, “Nothing is lost” accompanied with a heart emoji.
