This year’s BFI LONDON FILM FESTIVAL has just concluded. Here is one of the guests whom I met at the event:
Ray Liotta has had many memorable screen roles including criminal and FBI informant Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese’s GOODFELLAS (1990) and as Charlie Metcalf in the TV medical drama ER, for which he won a Primetime Emmy. He has also collected a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as ex-con Ray Sinclair in Jonathan Demme’s cult action comedy SOMETHING WILD (1986).
His portrayal of Frank Sinatra in the 1998 TV movie THE RAT PACK and Alamo survivor Lorca / Tom Mitchell in the 2015 TV miniseries TEXAS RISING received SAG Award nominations.
Ray plays divorce lawyer Jay in the comedy-drama MARRIAGE STORY, which had its Gala Screening at both the Odeon Luxe in Leicester Square and the Embankment Garden cinema on Sunday 6 October. He signed my sketch at Corinthia Hotel when he arrived for the Festival the day before.
