Ray Liotta died on May 26 at the age of 67. The news was first reported by Deadline, which said the actor died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was shooting the upcoming thriller "Dangerous Waters." His cause of death was not immediately known.
Liotta's acting career spanned more than four decades, and most recently he appeared in popular films such as Noah Baumbach's 2019 award-winning divorce drama "Marriage Story" and the "Sopranos" prequel film, "The Many Saints of Newark."
The actor's breakout role was playing Ray Sinclair opposite Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels in the 1986 cult classic "Something Wild," which earned him a Golden Globe nomination. But the actor would find stardom four years later when he played Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese's 1990 classic "Goodfellas."
In an interview with Insider's Jason Guerrasio back in 2018, Liotta said the stardom of "Goodfellas" was so sudden and shocking that he didn't know how to use his newfound fame to elevate his career.
"I didn't have a publicist up until 'Goodfellas,'" he said. "I didn't know that was what you're supposed to do. Nobody was helping me. I had the agents, but back then I think I was with the wrong people at that time to get me to the next thing."
