Goodfellas cast remember Ray Liotta
Ray Liotta, a versatile actor, was best known for his iconic role in the classic movie Goodfellas. He was also popular among his co-workers, with numerous tributes noting his humor and kindness.
Martin Scorsese released a statement to the media in tribute to Liotta, praising his acting ability.
“Playing Henry Hill in Goodfellas was a tall order, because the character had so many different facets, so many complicated layers, and Ray was in almost every scene of a long, tough shoot, the statement reads, continuing:
“He absolutely amazed me, and I’ll always be proud of the work we did together on that picture. My heart goes out to his loved ones, and it aches for his loss, way too early.”
Robert De Niro also paid tribute, saying in a statement: “I was very saddened to learn of Ray’s passing. He is way too young to have left us.”
Lorraine Braco, who played his wife in the movie, said in a tribute that working with Liotta was her favorite experience working on the set.
That is a poorly worded headline. It makes it sound like he died at the steak house.
