Gut punch this morning learning Ray Stevenson passed away. His truly haunting performance by him in Ahsoka has a gravity that stunned us all. A great loss of a veteran artist and the craft is poorer for his absence from him. pic.twitter.com/cuFHcg2fmu

Ray Stevenson was a fellow Brit and an absolute gent. Actors aren’t always friendly or approachable while they’re shooting but Ray always had time to chat and never failed to be funny and kind. He treated me and my wife @Leah at the premiere like we were family. I’m gutted. pic.twitter.com/qog8SZsl1T

Ray Stevenson is one of the few Hollywood actors to have played not one, but two different Marvel characters. He played Frank Castle / The Punisher in Punisher: War Zone, one of his most important and remembered roles despite the fact that the film was a box office flop. Stevenson also played Volstagg, Thor’s friend, in several Marvel Cinematic Universe films, most recently Thor: Ragnarok (2017). From Cinemascomics.com, we can only send a message of encouragement, support and affection to family, relatives, friends and acquaintances. Rest in peace Ray.
