Keanu Reeves spoke candidly about how much his co-star Lance Reddick’s death “f–king sucks” at the “John Wick: Chapter 4” premiere.

“He was a beautiful person, a special artist [and] a man of grace and dignity [with] such a passion for his craft,” Reeves told Deadline on Monday’s red carpet.

“To have had the chance to work with him over the 10 years and four films [in the franchise] is something very special to me,” the emotional 58-year-old continued.

“It f–king sucks he’s not here.”

The “Matrix” star went on to express a similar sentiment to Entertainment Tonight, calling Reddick a “shining light.”

The “Wire” alum died on March 17 at age 60.

He is survived by wife Stephanie Reddick, as well as daughter Yvonne and son Christopher, whom he welcomed with Suzanne Yvonne Louis-Reddick.

Reeves honored Lance at Monday’s event with his red carpet look, pinning a blue ribbon to his suit.

Fellow co-stars Natalia Tena, Rina Sawayama and Laurence Fishburne also sported the meaningful accessory while posing for pics.

Fishburne told reporters that Reddick’s “shock” passing has been “hard.”

“He’s the goodness of this film,” the Emmy winner, 61, added. “He was kind of, in many ways, the heart of the film because his character loved John Wick.”

When news broke on Friday that Reddick had been found unresponsive in his California home, Reeves and director Chad Stahelski mourned the musician in a joint statement.

“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken at the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Lance Reddick,” the duo wrote. “He was the consummate professional and a joy to work with.

“Our love and prayers are with his wife Stephanie, his children, family and friends,” they concluded.
