Ray Stevenson Obituary
Stevenson played characters in the “Star Waɼs,” “Star Trek,” “Divergent,” and “G.I. Joe” series, as well as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, one of his most well-known personas was seen on television rather than in a movie: Titus Pullo, a Roman soldier, was a character played by Stevenson from 2005 to 2007 on the HBO series “Rome.”
After success in the historical drama, Stevenson took on his first of two Marvel roles, playing Frank Castle/Punisher in “Punisher: Waɼ Zone.” In “Thor,” he played Volstagg, one of Thor’s Warriors Three, in his subsequent Marvel role. Stevenson would come back for “Thor” sequels “The Dark World” and “Ragnarok.”
In 2013, Stevenson joined the cast of “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” as the mercenary Firefly; the following year, he made his debut as faction commander Marcus Eaton in the first of three “Divergent” movies. Three movies from 2022 featuring him were “RRR,” “Memory,” and “Accἰdent Man: Hitman’s Holiday.” Other films by Stevenson include “King Arthur,” “Kἰll the Irishman,” and “The Three Musketeers.”
