27th May 2022 – (Dominican Republic) Ray Liotta, an actor known for his roles in Goodfellas, Field of Dreams, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, has passed away at the age of 67. According to Deadline, he died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was shooting the film Dangerous Waters.
Liotta married actress and producer Michelle Grace in February 1997 after they had met at a baseball game, where her former husband Mark Grace was playing for the Chicago Cubs. They had a daughter together before divorcing in 2004.
From his experience shooting the Western Texas Rising, Liotta continued horseback riding and said in September 2014, “I was obsessed with riding horses [on the show]. I love it now. I’ve never had a hobby. It might be my new hobby.”
On an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Ray Liotta revealed that Nancy and Tina Sinatra, daughters of Frank Sinatra, once sent Liotta a horse’s head in the mail. The joke was in response to Liotta passing on playing their late father in a miniseries they were working on, only to have Liotta play him in the HBO made-for-TV movie The Rat Pack.
