SS Rajamouli mourns the passing of RRR actor Ray Stevenson.
At the age of 58, well-known actor Ray Stevenson passed away on Sunday. He was best recognized for his part in the recent blockbuster RRR. His officials verified the news of his untimely death. He was in Italy at the time of his death, according to his team. He received the unfavorable news four days before his birthday. His sudden demise's cause has not yet been made public. The talented director SS Rajamouli lamented Ray's passing on social media a while back.
The late actor played a bad character in RRR, a movie starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. In the movie, he played the nasty and bigoted Governor Scott Buxton, the main antagonist. Ray was recalled by SS Rajamouli, who posted a photo of the two of them from the set. In his post, he wrote that he's shocked and 'just can't believe the news'.
His post read, "Shocking... Just can't believe this news. Ray brought in so much energy and vibrancy with him to the sets. It was infectious. Working with him was pure joy. My prayers are with his family. May his soul rest in peace."
Soon after he shared the post, fans were also seen remembering the late actor. A fan wrote, "Rarely actors capture the camera. What a solid screen presence he had. God bless his soul and give strength to his family. I wished to see more of him on screen." Another fan wrote, "So heartbreaking. He was a fantastic actor. His performance in RRR was spectacular!! You will be missed. RIP."
