Ray Stevenson Cause of De@th

Ray Stevenson, a Northern Irish actor best known for his performance as the Punisher in the film “Punisher: War Zone,” passed away on Sunday at the age of 58 in Italy, according to a statement released by his publicist. There is no confirmed cause of de@th.

Stevenson made his acting debut in the 1990s, appearing in several television series before getting roles in action blockbusters in Hollywood. He was born on May 25, 1964, in Northern Ireland. Actually, in 2004, he got his big break when he was cast as Dagonet in Antoine Fuqua’s “King Arthur.”

Four years later, in 2008’s “Punisher: War Zone,” he finally secured a leading role, in what was then a somewhat brutal and violent rendition of Marvel’s dark figure, the Punisher. The picture failed poorly at the box office, earning only $10.1 million on a budget of $35 million, but it paved the way for John Bernthal’s critically lauded portrayal of the same character in Netflix’s subsequent series, “The Punisher.”
