Ray Stevenson is DEAD to me

[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.

Acquired, presumably. Excuse the shitty automatic translation, I was in a rush.

It seems it's currently handled as a death hoax. We'll have to wait for respectable outlets to report on it.

He was hot in his season of Dexter

And gay. Dexter should’ve tapped that.

He was even hotter when he was younger opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones in a BBC adaptation of Hardy's THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE. Lady Olivier played his mama.

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.

Rome was my jam. All the guys were gorgeous, I was partial to James Purefoy. My sister crushed on Pullo and met RS outside a club. Said he was nice. He’s gone too soon.

by Anonymousreply 19May 22, 2023 9:17 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 23May 22, 2023 11:18 PM

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.

I just rewatched Rome from beginning to end, both seasons. He was great and one of my favorites. Sad news.

Typo city, R26. I meant to say when I read about his death in the Daily Mail, they barely mentioned his role in Rome. Yet, most of the comments were about his work on that show. I was *bitter* that they canceled Rome when they did.

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.

It never stops running around the world. Like Battlestar Galactica it's made a fortune since.

R30- As far as I’m concerned Rome was the last good show on HBO. I wish they had 10 seasons of Rome. I never got into game of thrones.

by Anonymousreply 56May 23, 2023 12:28 PM

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.

This is an outrage. If a guy is going to show cock on a cable TV show, he should show it long enough and he should be well lit enough that we get a good look.

Next up after the break we have the great Ray Stevenson, who wrote the theme song to “Ghostbusters.”

by Anonymousreply 63May 23, 2023 1:26 PM

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.

by Anonymousreply 64May 23, 2023 2:34 PM

When I first saw this thread, I thought it was about the folksinger from 1970 who wrote the cheesy pop hit "Everything Is Beautiful". He is still walking among us at 84.
