The actor’s presence on the sets made Reddick overwhelmed. While Reddick was shooting for John Wick, Reeves showed up on the set just to support his co-star.

“During John Wick: Chapter Four, my first day of filming happened to be Keanu’s birthday. But he wasn’t in the scene. He came to the set anyway at nine o’clock at night with his girlfriend who I had never met… And she told me that she asked Keanu what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said, “I want to go see Lance.”
