 Lance Reddick Biography

Lance Reddick has played memorable characters in such major television series such as as the "Law & Order" franchise, "CSI: Miami,"and HBO's hit series "Oz."

He starred as Lt. Cedric Daniels on HBO's most critically acclaimed show, "The Wire." Reddick has had lead and featured roles in such films as "I Dreamed of Africa," "The Siege," "Brother on Brother," "Bad City," "Tennessee" and "Won't Back Down."

He had a recurring role as the mysterious Matthew Abbadon in the fourth season of "Lost."

Reddick most recently starred as Phillip Broyles in the FOX hit "Fringe."

Born and raised in Baltimore, MD., Lance attended the high school of Friends School (a Quaker school). His parents were both teachers in the Baltimore City public school system. His mother (originally from Texas) taught instrumental music for 40 years, while his father (who grew up in Baltimore) was a high school English and Social Studies teacher. His father later earned his law degree and became a public defender for 20 years. Lance attended the University of Rochester for one year as a physics major, before transferring to the prestigious Eastman School of Music, where he majored in classical composition for four years. Throughout his college years, Lance acted in school productions "just for fun."

As he slowly came to admit to himself that his heart lay not with classical music, but with pop music, Lance eventually left Eastman. As a young man in his twenties, he struggled to make it as a pop musician while married with a baby daughter. He did construction work, waited tables, delivered pizzas and newspapers, was an artist's model, and did lapidary work in a crystal jewelry store, often working seven days a week to support his family and build a music career. "Eventually, I started to realize that if I kept doing what I was doing, I'd keep doing what I was doing. So, I began to completely re-evaluate my approach," says Reddick. He decided to try acting as a way to help jumpstart his music career, and he very quickly started getting cast in local stage productions. Soon, acting began taking over his life. A year later, he applied to the drama school at Yale, on a lark, and got in.

Two weeks after his graduation in 1994, the talented actor was cast as the understudy for the powerful actor Jeffrey Wright in his Tony award winning role as Belize in "Angels in America." 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 Lance played the lead character of Floyd.

In 2006, Lance launched YNC Films. His vision is to produce small, multi-ethnic, artistically sophisticated and socially complex films that are talent driven, rather than star driven. He believes that the success of "The Wire" is proof that there is not only a market for this, but a need. Ultimately he would like to make his films available for digital download, much like the pioneering work being done by Morgan Freeeman's Revelations Entertainment and Clickstar.
