Actor Ray Stevenson, known for his work in Marvel’s ‘Thor‘ and the “Star Wars” franchise, has died aged 58.

Ray’s publicist confirms the news to TMZ, saying he died on Sunday — they say they have no further details surrounding his death at this time.

Stevenson first broke into the world of acting in 1993, appearing in various episodes of TV before landing a role in the 1998 film “The Theory of Flight” with Helena Bonham Carter.
He went on to appear in a bunch of projects like “The Book of Eli,” “Rome,” “The Other Guys,” and “Kill the Irishman” — all before landing the role of Volstagg in Marvel’s “Thor” in 2011, returning to the series in 2 sequels as the years went on.

“Star Wars” fans remember Ray lending his voice to the character Gar Saxon — appearing in “Rebels” & “The Clone Wars.” He’s also playing a separate character in the upcoming “Ahsoka” series, premiering later this year.

Apart from that, Ray’s been featured in “Divergent,” 9 episodes of “Dexter,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Black Sails,” and “Crossing Lines.” He also played Scott Buxton in the recent Indian hit, “RRR.”
