At the age of 58, well-known actor Ray Stevenson passed away on Sunday. He was best recognised for his part in the recent blockbuster RRR. His representatives verified the news of his untimely death. He was in Italy at the time of his death, according to his team. He received the unfavourable news four days before his birthday. His sudden demise’s cause has not yet been made public. The talented director SS Rajamouli lamented Ray’s passing on social media a while back.
The late actor played a bad character in RRR, a movie starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. In the movie, he played the nasty and bigoted Governor Scott Buxton, the main antagonist. Ray was remembered by SS Rajamouli, who shared a photo of the two of them from the set. He expressed disbelief and ‘simply can’t believe the news’ in his message.
His post read, “Shocking… Just can’t believe this news. Ray brought in so much energy and vibrancy with him to the sets. It was infectious. Working with him was pure joy. My prayers are with his family. May his soul rest in peace.”
Fans started remembering the late actor shortly after he published the message. Rarely do actors catch the camera, a fan wrote. What a commanding presence he had on screen. God grant his family courage and blessings on his soul. More of him on the screen would have been nice. “So heartbreaking,” another admirer commented. He made a great actor. His RRR performance was outstanding! We will miss you. RIP.”
Last night, RRR’s official Twitter account tweeted a post in Ray’s memory. What terrible news for the entire crew, read their message. Ray Stevenson, please rest in peace. Sir Scott, you will live on in our hearts forever.
In the meantime, Ray gained notoriety for his roles in the 2011 films Thor and Thor Ragnarok. He featured as Volstagg, a friend of the eponymous character Thor and an Asgardian.
