[quote]British actor Ray Stevenson died at Rizzoli hospital on Ischia. He was 58 years old and had been on the island for a few days to shoot the film "Cassino a Ischia", directed by Frank Ciota. Stevenson accused an illness that required hospitalization in the medical facility. Subsequently the actor's conditions, already very serious at the time of hospitalization, worsened until his death.
Ray Stevenson is DEAD to me

It's hard to believe he was just 58. He will always be remembered for his '70s chart topper "Everything Is Beautiful." We will be talking to his son McLean shortly, who had a big hit of his own with "American Pie." Talented, talented family.

He was filming a movie and died? WTF? What illness could be "acquired" that resulted in death - covid?
Now, I'm hoping that his character is killed off by the end of the Ahsoka series this summer because it will be tough if they have to figure out somehow how to work around his death in future shows.

Loved him in ROME (so hot!) but it seems like his resume is just filled with Marvel-type crap after that. No wonder I haven't seen him in anything since.
And I guess I sure won't now.

It’s odd because I read this first in the Daily Mail and they barely mentioned Rome. Yet, in the comment section most were fans of his from Rome. I will always be better how fast they canceled that show.

Ray Stevenson & Kevin McKidd made a good duo in "Rome". The show had some good episodes, although I thought the quality of its writing paled in comparison to "I, Claudius".

R37, I think Ray briefly showed his cock in one of the sex scenes on "Rome".
R30, yeah, it's too bad that Season 2 of "Rome" had to be rushed to a conclusion before it was cancelled. I think the reason given at the time was the out of control huge budget, yes?

R49, from what I remember it was jointly produced by HBO, BBC and an Italian broadcaster. It was very expensive to produce and the Italian company, and maybe the BBC as well, dropped out of funding S2. So HBO produced the last season and announced it would end. I remember reading they regretted canceling it because between the seasons it exploded in popularity. It became one of HBO’s classics.

R49- I read once that the whole set for Rome had burned down and it was far too expensive to rebuild and that was the reason that they only had two seasons of the show.

I've just started Rome, so what I really remember Ray for is Dexter, my absolute favorite show at the time. I give him full credit for turning around the show and giving it this great renaissance, if you will, in season 7.
Of course it would be completely squandered in season 8.
