To say that Lance Reddick is intimidating in person is, perhaps, the understatement of the century. Maybe it’s the characters he’s so expertly portrayed: Lieutenant Cedric Daniels on The Wire, Matthew Abaddon on Lost, and most recently Agent Philip Broyles on Fringe, none of whom are exactly warm and fuzzy guys. Reddick exudes professionalism, class, and a distinctly no-BS aura. Listening to him speak, in his soft gravely tone about his craft and character, it is clear you’re not sitting with ‘just an actor’ but a thespian who really knows his stuff…and that’s a wee bit intimidating.
Once my palms stopped sweating, I enjoyed every moment with Reddick. He was a charming and open interview, answering each question thoughtfully and in great detail. Reddick and I discussed conspiracy theories and fringe science, what it’s been like working with JJ Abrams again, what he thinks about the kiss he and Nina Sharp shared during season 2’s premiere episode and what attributes he shares with Agent Broyles. Watch my full interview with Lance Reddick below and then be sure to tune in tonight to an all new episode of Fringe.
