Ray Stevenson dead at 58

quote [ Ray Stevenson, who played the villainous British governor in ?RRR,? an Asgardian warrior in the ?Thor? films, and a member of the 13th Legion in HBO?s ?Rome,? has died. He was 58. ]

This hit me kinda hard. Stevenson's performance in HBO's "Rome" is one of my favorite screen characters ever. I've modeled a lot of FRPG and MMORPG fighters after Titus Pullo.

Val?, brother. XIII in aeternum.
