Every great friendship has an even greater beginning. Such was the case for the amazing late Lance Reddick and veteran actor Ian McShane. From their very first interaction, as funny as it may be, their friendship seemed inevitable and it served to be a memorable one. Lance always had an interesting dynamic with Ian, much like Charon has with Winston, resulting in spectacular on-screen and off-screen chemistry between the two. With John Wick: Chapter 4 gearing up for its digital premiere on 23rd June exclusively on Lionsgate Play, what better way to pay tribute to an icon than honoring him and his amazing friendships through his own words!
Talking about his friendship and working with Ian McShane, Lance Reddick said, “It’s so funny because the first time I ever met Ian was in the scene at the end of John Wick: Chapter 2. So I’ve been a fan but I’d never met him before. As a matter of fact, when I first met Ian, I was being very weird because I was kind of tongue-tied and he was just – ‘Hey man how are you doing’, and I was like – ‘Oh, uh, huh?’, and he was looking at me like – ‘what’s the matter with you, are you okay?’ (laughs) That’s really when we became friends.”
