Bio

Lance Reddick is an American actor and musician best known for his role as Major Cedric Daniels in the television drama series The Wire, from 2002-2008.

He starred on the science fiction series Fringe (2008-2013), and also recurred on the hit series Lost.

He was also featured in a series of high-profile Cadillac spots, just wrapped the independent feature The Way of War with Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding, Jr., and will soon be seen in another leading role in Tennessee for producer Lee Daniels.

Reddick is also known for his outstanding work on The Corner and as Detective John Basil on Oz; recurring roles on CSI: Miami and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit; and the Showtime film Keep the Faith, Baby with Harry Lennix.

His feature film credits include work opposite Daniel Craig and Kim Basinger in I Dreamed of Africa, The Siege for director Ed Zwick, Alfonso Cuarón's Great Expectations and the indie film Bad City.

Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Reddick, the son of two public school teachers, attended the University of Rochester before transferring to the prestigious Eastman School of Music, where he majored in classical composition for four years before admitting that his heart lay with pop music.

In his twenties, he struggled to make it as a musician and decided to try acting as a way to help jumpstart his music career, and was quickly cast in local stage productions, and one year later, on a lark, he applied to the Yale School of Drama.

Two weeks after graduating from Yale in 1994, Reddick was cast as the understudy for Jeffrey Wright in Angels in America. His other theatre productions include Henry V, Julius Caesar, Afterplay, On House and the critically acclaimed 2006 off-Broadway revival of August Wilson's 7 Guitars, in which Reddick played Floyd.

In 2006, Reddick launched YNC Films with the vision to produce small, multi-ethnic, talent-driven, artistically sophisticated and socially complex films, and is currently developing a script by Bruce Terrace, the director and co-writer of Bad City.

Reddick is also dusting off his ambitions to pursue a recording career, having recently completed Contemplations & Remembrances, a collection of contemporary jazz songs that were released independently online.

Reddick divides his time between Los Angeles and New York.
