Actor Ray Liotta Passed Away Suddenly While Filming

We extend our heartfelt sympathies to his family, friends, and fans who are grieving his passing.

Actor Ray Liotta, who starred as Shoeless Joe Jackson in “Field of Dreams,” Henry Hill in “Goodfellas,” and Tommy Vercetti in “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City,” died peacefully in his sleep in the Dominican Republic on Thursday.

Unfortunately, he was out of the country filming “Dangerous Waters” when the tragic news broke. His death was confirmed by the General Direction of Cinema of the Dominican Republic.

“We understand that he was accompanied by his wife and that the wife asks that you please respect her grief,” the statement reads. There is no suspicion of foul play in his death, and his fiance, Jacy Nittolo was present when he died.

In addition to his film roles, Liotta won a Screen Actors Guild nomination for his portrayal of singer Frank Sinatra in the 1998 TV drama “The Rat Pack.” In 2004, he made his Broadway debut in the Stephen Belber drama “Match,” playing Frank Langella.

Liotta’s breakthrough performance was in the 1990 film “Goodfellas” which is largely regarded as one of the best films of the twentieth century and it has won one Oscar as well as garnered other five nominations.

“Many Saints of Newark,” “Marriage Story,” for which he earned a 2020 ensemble Indie Spirit Award, and Steven Soderbergh’s “No Sudden Move” were among the most recent films in which the producer appeared.

He was also set to feature alongside Demi Moore and Margaret Qualley in the Working Title film “The Substance,” directed by Elizabeth Banks.

Liotta is survived by her daughter Karsen and was engaged to Jacy Nittolo. The news was initially reported by Deadline.
