On December 18, 1954, in the United States, Raymond Allen Liotta entered the world as an actor and producer. The roles he played in “Goodfellas” (1990) and “Field of Dreams” (1989) made him a household name.
In 2004, Liotta received a Primetime Emmy Award for his role as a guest actor in the medical drama “E.R.” Let’s take a moment now to recognize this brilliant performer, who was nominated for not one but two SAG Awards. The role of Ray Sinclair in the 1986 Jonathan Demme film “Something Wild,” for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, catapulted him to fame.
Ray Liotta Cause Of De@th
The actor Ray Liotta passed away last year, and an autopsy determined that he died of cardiovascular illness.
Officials confirmed on Monday that the 67-year-old actor from “Goodfellas” died from atherosclerotic disease, the buildup of fats, cholesterol, and other substances in and on the artery walls, exactly one year after he died in his sleep while filming the movie “Dangerous Waters” in the Dominican Republic.
His dea@th was attributed to heart and respiratory failure as well as pulmonary edema (the accumulation of fluid in the lungs).
The actor’s publicist Jennifer Allen confirmed to CBS News that Liotta died in his sleep.
Dominican authorities determined that de@th may have occurred between 8 and 10 hours before the body was recovered and an autopsy was performed on May 26, 2022 (at 3:22 p.m.).
Most people recognize Liotta from his role as Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s groundbreaking gangster picture “Goodfellas,” which he starred in with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in 1990.
To name just a few of her recent film roles, Liotta may be seen in Marriage Story, Killing Them Softly, The Place Beyond the Pines, and the “Sopranos” prequel, The Many Saints of Newark.
