'Field of Dreams' star Ray Liotta dies at 67

New Delhi:

 Ray Liotta, who is best known for Henry Hill in famed director Martin Scorsese’s GoodFellas, has died.

Ray, 67, leaves behind a daughter, Karsen. He died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was shooting the film, Dangerous Waters. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liotta also was memorable as Ray Sinclair, the violent ex-convict husband of Melanie Griffith’s character, in Jonathan Demme’s Something Wild and as cop Matt Wozniak on the 2016-18 NBC cop drama Shades of Blue.

Lorraine Bracco, who was a co-actor in GoodFellas, paid tribute to him.

“I am utterly shattered to hear this terrible news about my Ray,” she wrote on Twitter. “I can be anywhere in the world & people will come up & tell me their favourite movie is GoodFellas. Then they always ask what was the best part of making that movie. My response has always been the same … Ray Liotta.”

Actor Jennifer Lopez also paid tribute to her co-actor Ray. 

“Ray was my partner in crime on Shades of Blue … the first thing that comes to mind is he so was kind to my children. Ray was the epitome of a tough guy who was all mushy on the inside … I guess that’s what made him such a compelling actor to watch. The original Goodfella,” she wrote on Twitter while sharing a clip from their movie. 

She further wrote, “Like a raw nerve, he was so accessible and so in touch in his acting and I will always remember our time together fondly. We lost a great today … RIP RAY … it’s so sad to lose you what seems way to soon.” 

“I will remember you always. Sending so much love and strength to your daughter Karsen, your family and all your loved ones,” she concluded the tweet. 

Ray and Jennifer were together in a drama series called ‘Shades of Blue.’ 

Raymond Allen Liotta was born in the city of Newark on December 18, 1954. He was adopted from an orphanage when he was six months old.

Later in life, he won an Emmy in 2005 for his guest turn on the NBC drama ER. 

He was also known for films like Field of Dreams, Narc, Identity, Hannibal, Cop Land, Killing them softly, Heartbreakers, Slow burn, Article 99, The Details, and many more.
