In an interview with Vulture to promote John Wick 4, Reddick explained a very special occurrence that took place at the very beginning of filming on the thriller movie.

He said: “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. His girlfriend is cool as fuck.

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’.

“He’d never done this before but he wrote me a note thanking me for what I brought to the character in these movies. And he wanted to give the note to me. I’ll never forget it. I’m going to cry now. I don’t remember where I put it. I do know that I want to frame it.”
