ctor Ray Liotta has passed away at the age of 67.

Deadline reports the Goodfellas icon died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was shooting his latest film Dangerous Waters.

TMZ was told by a source close to the actor that there is nothing suspicious about his death and no foul play is suspected.

His representative Jennifer Craig confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Liotta was shooting a movie and died in his sleep. She did not have any other details.

He was engaged to be married to Jacy Nittolo who is believed to have accompanied him to the Caribbean set of Dangerous Waters.

Liotta’s breakout role came as wannabe mobster Henry Hill in Martin Scorcese’s classic gangster flick Goodfellas.

He starred in Field of Dreams, Youth in Revolt, Guy Ritchie’s Revolver and Marriage Story.

His death came as his acting career was experiencing a resurgence winning critical acclaim for starring as the jazz-loving prisoner Uncle Sal and his twin in the recent Sopranos prequel The Many Saints of Newark.

He also starred in Steven Soderbergh‘s No Sudden Move alongside Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour and Jon Hamm last year.

He had just finished filming the Elizabeth Banks-directed Cocaine Bear and was due to star in the Working Title film The Substance opposite Demi Moore.

Liotta burst onto the scene in Goodfellas pushing aside heavyweights Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci to take on the lead role in Goodfellas.

“As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster”, the iconic line he will be remembered for in the opening scene as he took on the role of the narrator blue-eyed Henry Hill.

Liotta’s range in the film portraying Hill’s rise as a young hood to his cocaine-fuelled paranoid downfall won acclaim and launched his career.

The actor paid tribute to real-life Goodfella when he passed away in 2012, saying: “Although I played Henry Hill in the movie Goodfellas I only met him a few short times so I can’t say I knew him but, I do know he lived a complicated life.

“My heart goes out to his family and may he finally rest in peace.”
