RIP Raymond Lovelock

Italian actor Raymond Lovelock died from a brain tumor in Trevi, Lombardy, Italy today at the age of 67. Lovelock was born to an Italian mother and a British father who met during WWII. Ray’s career spanned over 90 films and TV appearances from 1965-2016. He was discovered by an acting agent while performing in the Roman nightclub the Piper in a rock band with longtime friend and fellow thespian Tomas Milian. This lead to his first role in the spaghetti Western Django Kill... If You Live, Shoot! (1967). He would also appear in the Euro-western “The Return of El Coyote” in 1998. He is best remembered for his roles in Fiddler on the Roof (1971), Almost Human (1974), Violent City (1975), The Cassandra Crossing (1976) and the TV series Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man (1976).
