Destiny players gather to pay their respects to Commander Zavala’s voice actor, Lance Reddick
Destiny players have flocked to the Tower to pay their respects to the late great Lance Reddick.
Reddick – who died of “natural causes” yesterday aged just 60 – is known for his roles on John Wick, The Wire and Lost – but his unique voice is perhaps best known to the Destiny community, for which Reddick has been Commander ever since Zavala portrayed the series back in 2014.
Wardens celebrate Reddick’s death by gathering alongside Zavala in the tower, where dozens of players sit in silent contemplation, some marking his death with sinister emotes.
“I hope Bungie somehow introduces a permanent memorial to the game to commemorate Lance. Not only was he a VA for the commander, but he was also a player like us.” Commentator a player.
More and more guards show up for a vigil in the tower. May the light take care, commander.

“Maybe you can memorialize his guardian since he played the game?” recommended other.
“He shouldn’t be recast. Bungie should do what Marvel did with Chadwick Boseman and send him off with the credit he deserves.” said one playerto that someone answered: “Something heroic and selfless”.
“Lance Reddick was an iconic presence on screen, in Destiny, and most importantly, in person,” Destiny developer Bungie said in a statement. “His love for our community was evident in Commander Zavala, in his uncompromising dedication to his craft and in the radiant kindness that touched those around him.
“To say he is missing is a profound understatement, but no less true.”
Guerrillia Games – for whom Reddick played Sylens in Horizon: Zero Dawn and Horizon: Forbidden West – also released a statement.
“Thank you, Lance Reddick, for all you have contributed to the character of Sylens, for sharing with us your infinite talent and wisdom, for your generous warmth and inimitable presence, and for your profound influence, not just as a part our occupation, but our community.
“We are deeply honored to be working with you. You will be missed. We extend our deepest condolences to his loved ones. Rest in peace, Lance.”
