Lance Faced Racism

Lance will always be remembered for appearing in the most significant American series, The Wire

He played Cedric Daniels in the show, which was a massive hit. 

In one of the interviews, Lance opened up about the racism he had to face while working on the series. 

The series contained most black actors and was not so popular when it started. 

He had always known about the existence of racism in the film industry, but he deeply felt it when the series was ignored. 

Another series that started along with The Wire was getting nominated for an award function, but The Wire got nothing. 

He even revealed that the industry took six months to decide whether to pick the series because of the majority of black people on the show. 

Addiction To TV 

Lance belongs to the black ethnic group, and because of that, he didn't have a normal childhood. 

He recalled his school days and shared how every child in his class made him feel he didn't belong there. 

He went to a private school. He was only 7 or 8 years old when he was the only black kid in the class of white students. 

He was a kid, so he had no idea about his race, but other white children represented him as a black kid and constantly made fun of him. 

Because of that, he always felt like an outsider among white students. As a result, he was treated differently, and because of that, he became addicted to TV. 

He didn't like being around white students at school, so he just waited until to end of school, went home, watched TV, and got lost in his world.

Back Injury Changed Lance's Life 

Lance was in an acting career for more than two decades. However, acting was not what he always wanted to do. 

After dropping out of college, Lance started his music career, but it didn't go well at the same time; his daughter was also born, so he desperately needed money. 

He left that and started working three shifts a day. He worked double shifts waiting tables and doing delivery. 

He worked daily without proper sleep, suddenly feeling something weird in the back one day but ignored it and worked again for 2 to 3 more days. 

Suddenly one day, he became unable to get up from his bed, and that was when he realized that he couldn't spend the rest of his life working like that. 

That's when he started acting. He knew he was good at music and working, so he pursued an acting career. 

After he started his acting career, he never looked back.

Lance's Sudden Death Shocked People 

Lance died at the age of 60 on March 17, 2023. Many people admired the actor for his portrayal in The Wire

He was found dead at his home on March 17, and the reason behind his death is yet to be revealed. 

Just a day before passing away, he posted pictures and videos of him having time with his dog. He loved dogs and had owned many dogs. 

He looked energetic and delicate in his posts just a day before his death because people had difficulty believing that the actor was no more. 

Many famous actors honored him with all their positive and kind words and shared how great a human he was.
