“Rome has fallen, centurion!” This is how the audience says goodbye to Northern Irish actor Ray Stevenson, who died on May 21, 2023. The artist’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, it is only known that he fell ill on the set of the film Cassino in Ischia by the Italian director Frank Chiota.

– Death occurred in the Rizzoli hospital on the island (Ischia – a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea – Auth.), – writes the local newspaper La Repubblica. Stevenson filmed over several days at Cassino on Ischia directed by Frank Chiota, which also stars Hugo Digero. On Saturday afternoon, he became ill and required hospitalization. The actor’s condition, already very difficult at the time of hospitalization, worsened and he soon died.

Born in Northern Ireland, Stevenson moved with his family at the age of 8 to English Leamington (Newcastle upon Tyne) and then to Cramlington (Northumberland), where he spent his entire childhood. He was the middle of three children born to an RAF pilot and an Irish mother. Ray dreamed of being an actor since he was a child, but at the same time he believed that this was unattainable. He entered the first television episodes in 1993; he appeared in them quite often until he landed one of the leading roles in the 1998 tragicomedy Flight Theory.

The audience, of course, remembers the charismatic actor from a number of iconic works: Sir Dagonet in the historical drama King Arthur, the legionnaire Titus Pullo in the TV series Rome, Porthos in the European version of The Three Musketeers, a hairy Asgardian and friend. of protagonist Walstagg in the action films “Thor” and “Thor: Ragnarok”, the leader of the Abnegation faction Marcus Eaton in the fantasy drama “Divergent” and the Kiev assassin Isaac Sirko in the series “Dexter”.

“The very world we live in now is in such a state that when we start to believe the world is distorted, it really isn’t what we were given anymore,” Stevenson reflected on the set of Divergent. – Their “fractures”, wounds, pain… And the natural desire of the human being is to think about what else remains, what are the main problems and how they can be solved. Addressing this issue through film is a great way to explore. Everyone will think, “Why did caste division and isolation occur?” It doesn’t install that fast. It will take a long time to get to this point, because people don’t wake up one day wanting to crush the world. But we see that it’s still fragmented, and it seems quite natural to me to explore this.

The drama “Casino in Ischia” was the last work of the famous actor: he played the main role – an action star struggling to figure out how to revive his career after the harsh abandonment of his family for the sake of fame. In addition, the Ahsoka series will be released soon, part of the Star Wars franchise, where Stevenson also played one of the key roles. In the fantasy project, Ray embodied the image of the villain Balan Skoll, one of the main antagonists of the main character Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), a Jedi girl and Padawan Anakin Skywalker.

On May 25, the actor was supposed to turn 59 years old. The exact cause of the actor’s death has not yet been made public. Stevenson was married to actress Ruth Gemmell from 1997 to 2005. And in 2005 he divorced and began a relationship with the Italian anthropologist Elisabetta Caraccia, known for filming the series “Roma” – they had three children: Sebastiano Derek, Leonardo George and Lodovico.
