Acclaimed actor Ray Liotta has died, aged 67

The voice of Goodfellas and a scene-stealer for many decades, may he rest in peace.

Ray Liotta has died, aged 67.


Deadline Hollywood confirmed the sad news on Thursday afternoon (26 May). No cause of death has been revealed.

According to Deadline, Liotta died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he had been working on new film Dangerous Waters.

Perhaps best known for his work on Martin Scorsese's iconic gangster saga Goodfellas, a role that made excellent use of his vocal tones for the film's narration, Liotta was a highly respected screen presence with a long list of scene-stealing turns to his name.

After breaking out in 1983 comedy Something Wild, Liotta would go on to give strong performances in the likes of Field of Dreams, Cop Land, Hannibal, Heartbreakers, Narc, Killing Them Softly and The Place Beyond the Pines.


He also recently enjoyed something of a career resurgence, winning acclaim for his dual role in Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark.

For a generation of fans, he will of course be remembered for providing the voice of Tommy Vercetti in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Liotta, who was engaged to be married at the time of his passing, leaves behind a daughter.
