Ray Liotta, an actor, has died. According to his publicist, Jennifer Allen, Liotta died in his sleep while filming Dangerous Waters in the Dominican Republic. He was 67 years old at the time.

The actor is most remembered for his performance as Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s 1990 film Goodfellas, in which he shaped the idea of a gangster film for years to come. The film was based on Nicholas Pileggi’s non-fiction book Wise Guy. To prepare for the role, Liotta sat in his mother’s car and listened to hours and hours of recording of Hill being questioned, according to WHYY’s Fresh Air.

Liotta was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1954. After being adopted by the Liotta family, he grew up in a nearby Union. He began acting while studying drama at the University of Miami. Following college, he appeared in a few tiny roles in commercials and TV shows, but his breakthrough role came in Jonathan Demme’s 1986 film Something Wild.

Following that, he was cast in Goodfellas after playing the spirit of baseball star Shoeless Joe Jackson in Field of Dreams.

Even though Henry Hill was Liotta’s most famous part, he continued to work in films such as Corrina, Corrina, Cop Land, and The Rat Pack throughout his life.

Liotta received an Emmy for his role as Charlie Metcalf, an alcoholic ex-convict trying to reconcile with his kid, in the hospital drama ER in 2005.

Liotta most recently acted alongside Jennifer Lopez in Shades of Blue, in which he delivered his trademark ferocity. Between 2016 and 2018, the criminal drama aired for three seasons.
