Lance Reddick played my mentor in my first big game. Although we never met in person, it was an honor to play off him across time and studio space. His stellar performances and his joy in being part of the Destiny community will continue to inspire. Thank you, Commander. 💫 pic.twitter.com/3gBtWoCYCQ
