The entire conversation takes on a different tone now after The Wire actor's tragic passing last week. He loved this franchise and the people he got to go into work with everyday. In his comments with McShane, it's apparent how much time they spent setting up the backstory for these two men. Their love for the craft is something to behold, and you can watch their full comments down below.

"We worked it out early on," McShane began. "We worked on our backstory, you know? Just to get some ease about being with each other and playing the parts. I think they know each other very well, they've been together a long time. They worked here since they were kids. When he was a kid, when I wasn't a kid, because I'm older than him… There's a personal built in interest."

Reddick reflected, "There's a part of me that feels like he owes his life to Winston. So, he will give his life for him. When the developments that occur in the fourth installment happen… our bond is so tight, because it really is family, that it gives him the impetus for his journey throughout the fourth installment."
